Elvis & The Colonel

.

ISBN: 1545259240ISBN: 1545259240Das 200 Seiten starke Buch "Elvis & The Colonel" ist von Darrin Lee Memmer, erschien am 15.03.2017 und wird mit folgenden Worten angekündigt:

"Elvis & The Colonel" by Darrin Lee Memmer is an A4 format, 200-page project dedicated to EIN honorary president and Aussie superfan Mr. Nigel Patterson. This soft cover features groundbreaking content from the Colonel's "For The Record" interview with 2 astute, take-no-prisoners criminal investigators (Mr. E.L. Hutchinson, Jr. and Mr. David N. McGriff) from the Shelby County District Attorney General's Office. Rest assured that this is no whitewash or rose-colored approach to biography; nah, just the most contemporaneously-rich, fair-minded & engaging collection of material about Colonel Parker to be assembled in one place.

So, for the 1st time in your life, you have an opportunity to soak up a tsunami of never-before-published quotes by notable figures including Mac Davis, bodyguard Sam Thompson, Billy Goldenberg, John Hartmann, Hal Blaine, "Bones" Howe, John Wilkinson, Grelun Landon, two-time beautiful co-star Yvonne "Batgirl" Craig, NBC-TV Special visionary Steve Binder, Minnie Pearl, Sam Katzman, Ron Jacobs, bodyguard Red West, Jerry Schilling, Joe Pasternak, Las Vegas Hilton VP Henri Lewin, Freddy Beinstock, songwriter Jerry Leiber, Joe Guercio orchestra member/tour conductor Marty Harrell, CMA President Jo Walker, Hubert Long, Johnny Rivers, Pete Johnson, Bill "The Incredible Hulk" Bixby, and, of course, The Chief Potentate.

"General de Gaulle and The Colonel," as told by SINGER presents ELVIS producer/director Steve Binder. The Colonel tells this fantastic story. He used to get calls from all over about Elvis performing for troops. And he gets a long-distance phone call from General de Gaulle, who has an interpreter on the line. Then, de Gaulle's interpreter says: "The general would like Elvis to perform for the French army."

The Colonel says, "you got it. But there is only one thing." He said, "I have to charge General de Gaulle the exact same amount of money to perform for the French army, as I would charge President Eisenhower to have Elvis perform for the American army." De Gaulle's interpreter tells de Gaulle, and then says, "the general would like to know how much?" And the Colonel says, "three hundred and fifty-thousand dollars ($350,000)," ...The Colonel hears de Gaulle say, in English: "That's A LOT of f*ckin' money!"

Two Highlights: 1. Uncovered! The "I do drugs" quote attributed to Elvis (via Colonel) - is erroneous. Col. Parker's actual words to the criminal investigators:(Quoting EP) "I don't. I don't do drugs. I don't. I don't tell you what to do with your personal life. I don't interfere with it. I don't want you to get involved with my personal life. Colonel, no disrespect..." 1a. So, sadly for 25+ years, superfans like Geoffrey McDonnell have been led astray. 2. The most comprehensive presentation of The Guardian ad Litem's Amended Report (Blanchard E. Tual vs. Colonel Thomas A. Parker) & The RCA "Masters Buy-Out" to appear in a biography.

OSCAR DAVIS: He is a very demanding man, but a very hard worker. Colonel Parker can read you like a book as you stand and talk with him. He is very astute. A tremendous businessman. If I had to select anyone in this amusement field - and I've been through it from 1912 on up - I would select him to make deals. I don't think anyone has bested him on a deal.

DJ FONTANA: The guy was a very smart man. In fact, I'd call him - to me, he is a genius. Because he doesn't miss a trick. He does everything right. He was always around, somewhere. You'd never know where he was gonna be. The Colonel was always there. He kept the whole thing rollin'.

HENRI LEWIN: A gentleman. We [The Hilton Hotel] have the highest respect for him.

MINNIE PEARL: Colonel Parker is the most fearless business personality of anybody in the world. Nothing fazes him. He is dauntless. An inscrutable man.

CHARLIE GREENE: The Colonel is an elephant among fleas of the business. The king of the jungle."

Six Years On The Road With Elvis

.

"Six Years On The Road With Elvis" heißt ein Buch vom ehemaligen Toningenier Bruce Jackson, welches mit folgenden Worten vom Verlag angekündigt wird:

"I mixed and ran the sound for Elvis for six years until his death on August 16 1977. I was 22 when I started working for him. I did hundreds and hundreds of shows with Elvis across mainland United States and Hawaii, constantly on the road to the next city or town. In between there were recording projects Elvis asked me to be a part of and stopovers for rehearsals at Graceland. Over those six years I got to know him on a candid personal level as a friend.' - Bruce Jackson

Written and compiled by the Jackson family using intimate letters and direct quotes from talking tapes recorded by Bruce Jackson back in the day, this book will take the reader on a previously unexplored journey behind the scenes with new stories, new artefacts, and details never before read about Bruce Jackson, Elvis Presley and his entourage. Richly illustrated, you'll get an accurate impression of day-to-day touring life through postcards written and posted along the track by Bruce to his girlfriend and family, through fastidiously collected and preserved tour literature, and what everyone is wondering about: the tapes. Bruce recorded every show he did with Elvis. It's a fact.

Bruce was warmly welcomed into the TCB inner circle. This is Bruce’s story told in his words, with contributions from family, friends, and colleagues including Roy Clair (co-founder of Clair Bros Audio). Whilst the release date is to be confirmed, we will post details in due course and let you know how to order your copy of this limited edition."

.

ISBN: 1621576035ISBN: 1621576035Für den 17.08.2017 ist das 200 Seiten starke und bei "Regnery History" erscheinende Buch "All The King's Horses: The Equestrian Life Of Elvis Presley" von Kimberly Gatto und Victoria Racimo angekündigt. Das Vorwort schrieb Priscilla Presley.

Ankündigung des Verlages:
"When Elvis Presley decided he wanted to buy a horse in 1966, he didn't want just any horse. "He wanted a Golden Palomino," Priscilla Presley remembers. "He would get up at 3:00 in the morning, go to certain farms and ranches and say, 'Do you have a Golden Palomino for sale?' People would say, 'That was Elvis Presley!"

Elvis's legendary love of horses drove him to find the Golden Palomino who would become his beloved companion Rising Sun, and to fill Graceland's stables and Circle G Ranch with horses for family and friends to ride.

In the first-ever book dedicated to Elvis's equestrian side, horse lovers Kimberly Gatto and Victoria Racimo share rare stories, interviews, and photographs that shed light on the beautiful, quiet life the King lived when he was with his horses. "
