Product Overview

Format: Softcover

It starts in 1969 when Elvis was re-discovering himself as an artist, after years in the Hollywood wilderness. 1969 was crucial to prove that Elvis was not a golden oldies act, but in fact a contemporary artist and still a relevant chart force. The book looks at those essential 1969 Memphis recordings, it looks at Elvis' majestic return to the live stage, and the huge concerts at Madison Square Garden and the Aloha Satellite Show from Hawaii. Although many of Elvis' countless solid gold hits feature in the book, the author is also keen to explore the lesser known album tracks. This title will help you go deeper into the songs themselves. The book aims to have the reader look at each song in a different light.
