Released | Elvis: From Memphis to Taipeh Hardcover Book
February 13, 2021
This is the very first book about Elvis' Asian vinyl records. The hardcover book measures 28cm x 28cm, lists 500+ different records on 500+ pages and contains almost 2,500 pictures. Covers and labels are reproduced with great care so you can enjoy the many mistakes on said covers and labels, they are sometimes hilarious and often tell a lot about how and why these records were made. And such things will also be explained throughout the book.
While working on the book we very soon we found out that we had run right into a wasp's nest of countless titles, flying in from everywhere. We could never tell this epic story in just a single volume. So we decided to limit our coverage to 10" and 12" records from six major Asian countries: Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, and Thailand. Other countries and formats will just have to wait for Volume 2, and perhaps even a Volume 3!

Never before have we seen an Elvis Presley concert from the 1950's with sound. Until Now! The DVD Contains recently discovered unreleased film of Elvis performing 6 songs, including Heartbreak Hotel and Don't Be Cruel, live in Tupelo Mississippi 1956. Included we see a live performance of the elusive Long Tall Sally seen here for the first time ever. + Plus Bonus DVD Audio.
This is an excellent release no fan should be without it.
The 'parade' footage is good to see as it puts you in the right context with color and b&w footage. The interviews of Elvis' Parents are well worth hearing too. The afternoon show footage is wonderful and electrifying : Here is Elvis in his prime rocking and rolling in front of 11.000 people. Highly recommended.
