A CelebrationELVIS - A CELEBRATION - 
Done by Mike Evans using several pictures from the Graceland archives. Featuring approx. 600 images over the same amount of pages, it spans through the whole of Elvis' life and career.

Best Friends RemembersELVIS - HIS BEST FRIEND REMEMBERS - 
A video/DVD with Joe Esposito telling stories of his life with Elvis. 

The Elvis Presley Estate did not approve the film, so therefore no Elvis music could be used. As a "replacement", an instrumental track runs through the whole film, and it's very annoying. 

A major problem with this film is that there is so little use of footage, i.e. we only get to see approx. ten seconds from 70's live performances. And not a single frame from Joe's extensive collection of home movies. 

 

All ElvisALL ELVIS - 
"All Elvis" from Elvis Unlimited Productions contains more than 200 pictures of Elvis on stage, in private and in the studio etc. Several of them are unpublished before.

Featuring 116 photograps, several in colors. 

 

That's The Way It IsTHAT'S THE WAY IT IS
The revised That's The Way It Is (MGM) from 1970. 

In short this is both the original TTWII and the 1992 video release 'The Lost Performance' in one package. Originally this new edition promised a whole lot, eventually several additions were removed. 

Picture quality is very good. Unfortunately people report errors in sound on the rehearsal stuff. The same material that was in good sound quality on the original release... 

The DVD release also claims to contain 60 minutes of extra footage, although that was removed from schedule long time ago! 

Sloppy work this time also... 

Available on VHS and DVD.

 

Elvis On Stage by Keith AlversonELVIS ON STAGE

The price of this book is interesting...meaning a bit cheaper that you would expect for a book containing only color photographs.

Elvis In ConcertELVIS IN CONCERT - THE CBS TAPES
Earlier we heard that a fan in the Netherlands possessed 4 1/2 hours of the CBS-tape from June 1977, filmed to create the 'Elvis In Concert'. To this day the complete material has not been released. 

However portions is out on different releases. Available are the Omaha concert and the majority of Rapid City concert. The quality is in general very good, but be aware. It is likely that you will be offered a x-generation copy.

 

Last TourTHE LAST TOUR
This is a high quality bootleg video. Especially the footage from Kansas City, June 18 1977 is great. This is the concert before CBS started filming their 'Elvis In Concert' project. A fun version of Are 'You Lonesome Tonight', together with 'Big Boss Man' and more. 

This video also has footage from Chicago, both concerts in May (1 and 2). The concert from May 2nd has two different camera angles. Be aware that this is filmed by amateur camera, and therefore can not be compared with e.g. 'Elvis In Concert'. Still, high quality!

 

Encore Performances IIIEncore Performances III - Back To Chicago
Another picture book from Joseph A Tunzi. This time the focus is on Elvis in Chicago, May 1 1977. 

As always with J.A.T.'s books there are too many black and white photos. I am aware that color photographs is more expensive, but I suppose that it should be possible to include more of such, given the rather high price of the book. Unfortunately most of the pictures in this book is blurry and out of focus. In addition to the Chicago concert, there also is a 'Tru the Years' section. This section in fact saves the whole release. Still, this book is far from the best of all the J.A.T. books we have had through the years.

 

Aloha Via SatelliteALOHA VIA SATELLITE
This book focuses on the Aloha From Hawaii production. There are lots of photographs from both 'Alternate Aloha' and of course 'Aloha From Hawaii'. 

In addition this book contains photos from other related 'Aloha' things, including all press conferences. It also contains information about all the songs Elvis 'planned' to do in the concert, and songs lined up for rehearsals etc... 

The quality of the book is very high, but it contains too many black and white photographs to be considered 'A Must Have'

 

Careless LoveCARELESS LOVE
The Unmaking of Elvis Presley
The Book from Peter Guralnick is a follow up of the Last Train To Memphis. I bought this just before Christmas, and I warn you. Don't ever start reading this book in the evening, if you need sleep. It is hard to stop reading this book. It is so fascinating and so complete, and also I believe that the information in this book is accurate.  as found in the Washington Post. 

You should buy this book. Together with Last Train To Memphis it is 'all' you need to learn about Elvis, the man, the music and the phenomen

 

A Life In MusicELVIS PRESLEY - A LIFE IN MUSIC
The Complete Recording Sessions
This is the most comprehensive work of all the Recording Session books we have. Not surprisingly, since this is the last one in line of all book on this subject, but also Ernst have a unique possibility to get the right information. Several rumors are put to rest, new stories are revealed and for us diehard recording facts-fanatics, it is a relief. On the other hand the book also reveals some of the low interest for Elvis in 1977. So late as the time for the Platinum release, Ernst told us that My Way was from Saginaw, April 25. In this book, only months later he says that 'My Way' was sung in Chicago May 2. The correct date is Saginaw, April 25! In addition Ernst tells us that 'Mystery Train/Tiger Man' were done also in Chicago this day. Wrong again, as Elvis only did this medley on one single occasion in 1977, namely in Saginaw May 3rd!
