FTD have a new book release, A Moment In Time : 4 Days in ‘56, due out on November 29. Tthis time with no audio component, as the relevant music is available on Sony's 'Young Man With The Big Beat'. Author and producer Michael Rose has assembled a most stunning glimpse of Elvis' life in 1956. Through literally hundreds of photos : many previously unpublished : we get to join Elvis at his show in Detroit on May 25. We stay with the tour for two more days in Columbus and Dayton and finally arrive in Memphis on May 28.

Rose has interviewed people who attended the shows, found original newspaper coverage, chosen and organized the many photos, and arranged it all as a fascinating travel log.

This is the Elvis that country legend Bob Wills aptly described as a 'punk', before controversy and Hollywood toned him down. The perfect companion to Sony's new box set, 'Young Man With The Big Beat' (a few of the photos in the box set, including the front, actually comes from this book).
