Ich habe auch noch sehr viele ungelesene Elvis-Bücher zuhause, wie immer "still cealed". Das hält mich nicht davon ab, mir dieses Buch zuzulegen. Denn das 68er Special interessiert mich brennend. :beifall:

Das ist bestimmt ein tolles Buch, allerdings habe ich bereits das '68 at 40 Buch, für welches Binder den Text schrieb und ich habe meine Zweifel, ob bei dem neuen Buch so wahnsinnig mehr neue Informationen enthalten sein werden als dort. Ich werde voraussichtlich passen.
