A New Light On Colonel Tom Parker | Part II

For the Colonel, it was all about the money | This is true – fortunately, I have to add. That's what Elvis hired and paid the Colonel for. A manager not 'greedy for money' is just as unqualified for his job as a chimney sweeper suffering from acrophobia. The art on the other hand is the sole task of the artist, as the name already implies. Elvis was an artist who really deserved this term; he didn't need anybody telling him what to sing and how to sing.

Review | Elvis: 'Where No One Stands Alone' CD

Musically this album is terrific, the music is top notch as are the backing vocals. The songs are 'alive' and modern sounding - importantly they sound very good. For the most part, musically 'Where No One Stands Alone' is by far closer to what Elvis recorded than the recent 'Royal Philharmonic Orchestra' (RPO) releases ('If I Can Dream' and 'The Wonder Of You') - I think by way of example I can safely say that if you simply liked those (I loved them!!) you will LOVE this new album. And if you did not like them there is a far greater chance you will like this new release, but those that have a closed 'don't touch' Elvis' recordings attitude probably will not (because they will not even give it a go). Of course with people liking different things, not everyone is going to like a different sound, but going by the success of both 'If I Can Dream' and 'The Wonder Of You' there are obviously plenty of fans that do!

A New Light On Colonel Tom Parker

Just as his Elvis Presley is possibly the most famous entertainer of all time, Colonel Tom Parker is the publicly best-known artist manager, besides perhaps the Beatles' Brian Epstein who was, by the way, a huge admirer of Parker. In contrast to Epstein, however, Parker always 'enjoyed' an extremely bad reputation among his client's fans; loads of the worst imaginable stories and rumors are being told about the man who directed Elvis' career. The question is: What of all this is truth, what is legend, what is misunderstood or misjudged, what is totally false? It's about time to take a closer look at the most prevalent stories, rumors, claims, and opinions about this enigmatic and flamboyant personality. This article explicitly targets fans who are willing to take on a different perspective and face some sturdy facts. However, those who prefer to keep holding on to clichés they've come to love over the years should better stop reading now.

Revisiting Elvis Presley's '68 Comeback Special With Its Director

When Elvis Presley was filming the intro to his fabled '68 Comeback Special', the program's director had an unusual problem. 'I ended up having too many Elvises in the background', filmmaker Steve Binder tells Rolling Stone. 'I hate to fire anybody, so I decided to use them all. We were afraid the scaffold was not gonna hold the weight. We were sure we were gonna have a major lawsuit if it collapsed'.

The Intimate Beauty of 'For Ol' Times Sake'

In the early hours of 24 July 1973, singer/songwriter Tony Joe White was woken by a phone call in his Memphis home. A German voice on the other end of the line said: 'Mr White, we are down at Stax Records do you have any more songs? We need to do some more songs' ... The voice belonged to Freddy Bienstock, principal finder of songs at the King's court. When White realised who the tunes were for - and that his friend Felton Jarvis was producing the session - he ran off a copy of three songs (most notably I've Got A Thing About You Baby and For Ol' Times Sake) and drove to the studio ... Felton Jarvis walked by, and made sure that the man who had invented 'Swamp Rock', met Elvis, who had been one of the young White's great inspirations.

Bob Neal | Managing Elvis Presley

Your biggest success came after a phone call from Sam Phillips, right? Yes, Sam phoned me and said he had this new boy who just had a record out and would I put him on a show. I agreed with Sam and so I got Elvis on a show on August 10th, 1954. He got a tremendous reaction, which really amazed me because he had just started. Then a couple of months after that I was thinking one day and asked Elvis had he got a manager. He said 'No' and well I said I've never been a manager but let's try it.
