ISBN: 9780997272697ISBN: 9780997272697Paul Bélard veröffentlicht das 168 Seiten starke Buch "Elvis In Hawaii - November 1957", dass Elvis´ Reise nach und auf Hawaii vom 05.11. bis 13.11.1957 näher beleuchtet.

Cover-Rückseite:
"On November 5th, 1957, Elvis boarded the USS Matsonia for the 4 day boat trip to Hawaii. There, he would give the last three live performances of the 1950s. He left Honolulu on the USS Lurline on November 13, 1957.

During this visit, Elvis fell in love with the beauty of the islands and the hospitality of the people. Hawaii would become Elvis´ favorite vacation destination and he would enjoy many until his last one in March of 1977. Not only did he make three movies in Hawaii, Blue Hawaii, Girls! Girls! Girls! and Paradise, Hawaiian Style, he also came to Hawaii for two more live performances.

The first was on March 25, 1961. The show was a fund raiser to build a memorial for the USS Arizona, the largest of the battleships that had been sunk on December 7, 1941, during the surprise Japanese air attack on Pearl Harbor.

The second was also a benefit show beamed world-wide on January 14, 1973. It benefited the Kui Lee Cancer Found. Kui Lee, who died of this disease in 1966, had composed the song "I´ll Remember You."

Elvis En Ik - Odes aan Elvis Presley

.

ISBN: 9789492037626ISBN: 9789492037626Art Rooijakkers veröffentlichte das dänische Buch "Elvis En Ik - Odes aan Elvis Presley" dieser Tage und es wird mit folgenden - dänischen - Worten angekündigt:

"Ook al beweren sommigen het tegendeel: het is alweer veertig jaar geleden dat Elvis Presley overleed. De koning is dood, leve de koning! Zo lang wij hem blijven herdenken, blijft Elvis leven.

En leven doet hij, want oudere generaties blijven (jeugd)herinneringen aan hem koesteren, en jongere generaties blijven door zijn stijl en muziek beïnvloed. Zo kwam Elvisfan Art Rooijakkers met het mooie plan dat veertig-jarig jubileum te markeren met een Nederlands boek vol persoonlijke verhalen over Presley.

Niet alleen van hemzelf, maar van 17 verschillende auteurs, onder meer schrijvers, journalisten, muzikanten en muziekliefhebbers. Een bundel vol verhalen en anekdotes over Elvis als zanger en gitarist, Elvis als stijlicoon en Elvis als trendsetter van een nieuwe generatie. Alex Boogers Lammert de Bruin Peter Buwalda Eric Corton Gerard Ekdom Ingmar Heytze Matthijs Kleyn Cécile Koekkoek Jeroen Kijk in de Vegte Guus Meeuwis Art Rooijakkers Jan Rot John Schoorl René Shuman Mart Smeets Dennis van Tiel Pieter van der Wielen"

Elvis - Under The Covers

.

Mit einem Vorwort von Suzi Quatro erscheint im August 2017 das von Michael Madden geschriebene Buch "Elvis - Under The Covers" und es wird mit folgenden Worten angekündigt:

"In August 1977 the world stopped when Elvis Presley passed away. As we acknowledge the 40th anniversary of his passing, it is appropriate to remember the full extent of the man’s legacy, a legacy that continues to grow. Elvis Under The Covers explores his influence through the artists that have recorded his most often covered original songs. These are Can't Help Falling In Love. In The Ghetto, Don't Be Cruel, Heartbreak Hotel and Jailhouse Rock.

Glam rock legend Suzi Quatro has provided the foreword in which she describes the times that Elvis Presley touched her life, and when she touched his.

Mike Sanchez explains the influence that The King had on his life and his career.

There are also personal contributions from many of the artists featured in the book, including Eddi Reader, Mary Coughlan, Chris Spedding, Wanda Jackson, Tanya Tucker and Stella Parton.

These musicians, singers, actors and performers cover the whole spectrum of musical entertainment, from fame to obscurity, from number 1 hit makers to the occasionally bizarre, from cartoons to classics, and from religion to rock and roll.

It is not often that a book can legitimately mention Bob Dylan, Andy Williams and the members of The Beatles alongside Bugs Bunny, Stephen King and a camembert cheese (the reader will have to search for that one!) However, on a journey through this legacy there are many unusual connections, including a tenuous link between Jona Lewie and Howlin’ Wolf! The one thing that binds them all together, the essence of the journey that they have all chosen to take, is the elixir that is Elvis Presley."

Elvis - A King In The Making

.

ISBN: 078583303XISBN: 078583303XBei "Chartwell Books" erscheint am 17.10.2017 das 224 Seiten starke Buch "Elvis - A King In The Making" von Alfred Wertheimer und Peter Guralnick, welches bereits 2007 bei "Carlton Books" veröffentlicht wurde.

Ankündiung des Verlages:
" Alfred Wertheimer was born in Germany in 1930, came to America and settled in Brooklyn as a young boy. He took an early interest in architecture and design, which led him to Cooper Union, from which he graduated in 1951. In the spring of 1956, a series of commercial assignments for RCA Records led to a shoot of a newly signed singer named Elvis Presley. Instantly impressed, Wertheimer devoted four months of his own time to intensely shadow the young star. The result would be the most intimate and candid look at the future legend ever recorded.

Peter Guralnick is an award-winning biographer of Elvis Presley and author of Last Train to Memphis and Careless Love. A music critic, screenwriter, and historian of American popular music, he is also the author of Dream Boogie: The Triumph of Sam Cooke."
