.

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."

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."

Elvis: Las Vegas April - May 1956

.

Von Paul Berlard stammt das 235 Seiten starke Buch "Elvis: Las Vegas April - May 1956" und es wird mit folgenden Worten angekündigt:

"On April 23, 1956. Elvis and his band - Scotty Moore, Bill Black and DJ. Fontana - began a two week engagement at the New Frontier Hotel in Los Vegas. Freddy Martin and his orchestra had been scheduled for a while, as was comedian Shecky Green. Elvis was a belated added attraction.

He was referred to as the "Atomic Powered Singer", since Nevada was where the first atomic bombs were developed. Elvis' manager probably thought the name would be catchy? What he had not figured on was how an older nightclub crowd react to Elvis.

It has been widely reported that Elvis bombed in Las Vegas, even that his contract was canceled after a week. That the middle-aged audience that could afford to visit Las Vegas at the time reacted coolly to Elvis is true enough, but his contract was never broken. Elvis dutifully soldiered on for the contracted two weeks, closing with his last performance on May 6, 1956.

It was Elvis' manager who bombed, proving early on that he had no clue about what made Elvis so popular. "Heartbreak Hotel" was a number one hit, his first album Elvis Presley was on its way to becoming a million seller. Still what escaped Parker was the reality that the single and the album were not bought by the people who come to see an orchestra playing tunes from the Broadway show 'Oklahoma' or a comedian's shlick."
