Review : Elvis : The King Of Las Vegas Hardcover Book

There are other great photo books, usually keeping to a smaller theme that cover more of a particular time, 'Elvis Vegas '69' for example, a fantastic book, and still in a world of it's own, covering Elvis in Vegas in 1969. And indeed Elvis - The King Of Las Vegas contains some of the same photos used in that book, but while not as many and without the volume of information - the producers have still managed to come up with a great color photo that is not in Vegas '69!!! This impressed me. Now there is a lot more than just photos, there is a lot of information, articles, interviews, concert reviews. A must have book for every fan, and I do mean every fan.
And only 2000 copies available.
View a sample layout of the book. Please note these images are a sample of the layout, they do not give the best preview of some of the more stunning images, many I have not seen before.
Thank you, I received my book today. What a gorgeous book, it's a definite 'must-have'!! Jackie

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.
