Elvis The SUN Years: The Story Of Elvis Presley In The Fifties


ISBN : ‎ 0938840126ISBN : ‎ 0938840126Das 412 Seiten starke Hardcoverbuch "Elvis The SUN Years: The Story Of Elvis Presley In The Fifties" erschien am 20.07.2023 bei "Horizon Books" und wurde von Howard DeWitt , Scott Amonson bzw. Ken Burke verfasst.

Ankündigung des Verlages:
"The Story of Elvis Presley in the Fifties is recognized as the definitive history of Presley and Sun Records. By ignoring the myths and drawing upon 200 interviews with those close to Sun Record founder, Sam Phillips, the magnetic appeal of Elvis brought him to the forefront of rock ‘n’ roll. DeWitt offers a personal as well as professional portrait of young Elvis, who, from behind a facade of great confidence, revealed to his closest friends the rather shy, nervous, decent, respectful and polite individual whose primary desire as a performer was to always do his best. The forgotten heroes behind Elvis are also examined in detail. “That’s All Right (Mama)” created the power of the Hillbilly Cat. He became a regional star. When Col. Tom Parker became Presley’s manager, this created the myths surrounding Elvis’ unique talent. The back story of family, friends and musicians who brought Elvis to the pinnacle of rock stardom has never been told. They are the “forgotten heroes.” They tell a new story of Presley and the Sun Record label.

This expanded revised edition focuses on the talent of the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll as he entered the rock music mainstream. Supported by nine appendices devoted to Elvis’ early concerts, recordings, and musical influences, rare photos of his early life, a bibliographical essay, and a list of sources, Elvis the Sun Years is a unique, insightful, and entertaining portrait of a little-known period in the life of the greatest entertainer of our time."

IO, Elvis - La Storia Immortale Del Re Del Rock


ISBN: 8836163211ISBN: 8836163211Paolo Borgognone veröffentlicht am 10.10.2023 bei "Diarkos" das italienische Buch "IO, Elvis - La Storia Immortale Del Re Del Rock" erneut und diese Edition hat 32 Extraseiten.

Ankündigung des Verlages:
"What other 20th century artist has managed to embody, like Elvis, the perfect prototype of the pop (and rock) icon at 360 degrees? Music, cinema, culture, society ... Everything speaks - and has always spoken - of the King of Rock 'n' Roll.

Borgognone recounts his ascent to the pinnacle of fame which, analyzed from an alternative point of view, also represents a path in reverse, or rather a descent through the torments and fears of a simple man: Elvis Aaron Presley. The terrible poverty of his birth, the death of his twin in childbirth, the bullying suffered at school, the difficult beginnings of his career, the extravagance during the first great success and the call to arms.

Among unpublished curiosities and exclusive interviews, the book traces a human (and earthly) story that ended tragically on August 16, 1977, but indelibly carved into the firmament of world music."

Elvis Presley: The King Of Rock 'n' Roll


Von Morghan Knight erscheint das 77 Seiten umfassende Buch "Elvis Presley: The King Of Rock 'n' Roll" und dieses wird mit folgenden Worten angekündigt:

"The life of Elvis Presley, the King of Rock 'n' Roll, is a tale of remarkable triumphs, soaring successes, and poignant challenges. From his humble beginnings in Tupelo, Mississippi, to his meteoric rise to fame and enduring legacy, Elvis's journey has left an indelible mark on the world of music and popular culture.

As you traverse the pages of this biography, you'll uncover the many layers of Elvis—the musical prodigy who revolutionized the world of music, the charismatic performer who captivated audiences worldwide, and the vulnerable human being who grappled with the pressures of fame and the complexities of personal relationships.

From the early years at Sun Records to his Hollywood stardom, Elvis demonstrated a tireless dedication to his craft. He pushed the boundaries of musical genres, blending country, blues, gospel, and rock 'n' roll into a unique sound that continues to resonate with audiences today. His magnetic stage presence and electrifying performances transformed live entertainment, forever elevating the concert experience into a larger-than-life spectacle.

This book further reveals Elvis's personal struggles, from the challenges of fame and health issues to the complexities of his relationships and personal losses. Behind the curtain of stardom, we witnessed a man who grappled with the weight of expectations and the price of being a cultural icon.

Throughout his life, Elvis sought solace and meaning in spirituality, and his music, especially gospel, remained a source of comfort and connection to his roots. He had a profound impact on millions of lives, not only through his music but also through his generosity, philanthropy, and commitment to those in need.

Elvis Presley's untimely passing in 1977 marked the end of an era, but his legacy lives on. His influence continues to shape the music industry, inspiring countless artists across genres and generations. Graceland, his beloved home in Memphis, Tennessee, stands as a testament to his enduring impact, welcoming fans from around the world to celebrate the life of the King.

Beyond the fame and fortune, the story of Elvis Presley is one of human complexities—of dreams realized and challenges faced, of triumphs and tragedies. His journey serves as a reminder that even cultural icons are vulnerable, navigating the highs and lows of life just like anyone else."
