Elvis Presley: America The Beautiful (Book&CD) Joseph A. Tunzi

(2002/JAT) Paperback, 96 pages, 23x26 cm, incl. CD (5 tracks).

FOREWORD
It was at the end of last year that I had an idea for a book which would showcase Elvis Presley and his love for The Vnited States of America, appropriately titled Elvis, America The Beautiful. My intent was to also make it a fitting tribute to BMG/RCA Records for all the hard work they have done to preserve the music of Elvis Aron Presley for all ages to enjoy for many years.

The main participants in the Elvis Presley catalog restoration program include, among others, Senior V.P. of Marketing and Executive Producer, Michael Omansky, Producers Roger Semon and Ernst Jorgensen, and from RCA Special Products, Director of National Sales, Larry Pukel. It is this team that has worked so diligently to give the fans many great general releases along with their own collectors label titled Follow That Dream. It is our hope that this work will continue.

As I look through this book and see Elvis in some patriotic situations for the country he loved, or for the movie camera, a live concert, or in his personal life I realize the tremen-dous partnership that was formed in the early days between Elvis, the Colonel, and RCA. That commitment continues today with BMG/RCA, and we are grateful.


INTRODUCTION
Elvis Aron Presley was America personified, his life contained hopes, dreams, tragedy, and in the end, redemption. These are things all Americans have experienced in one way or another, but Elvis was our most tangible example.

Elvis' life is most probably well known to all readers, but we all have a different perception of him. The critics of the time were rarely kind or insightful, but true greatness is never appreciated in its lifetime. What we all can agree on is that Elvis Presley loved his country as much as he reflected it. Think of a rock star of modern times. Would any'go willingly into the Army at the height of their career? Elvis did do this, and excelled at his duty. He was, when drafted in 1958, seen as anti-establishment. When Elvis came back in 1960, those in power gradually treated him more kindly. That by 1970 Elvis was a certified DEA agent appointed by President Nixon shows how much all walks of life came to embrace Elvis. Elvis took this appointment seriously and did his best to help our country.
In January, 1972, Elvis added An American Trilogy to his live shows. It was a song which acted as an effort towards harmony between the South and the North. Elvis, a man without prejudice, wanted all people to feel included in his vision of our country.

Elvis Presley visited nearly every state in the union during his career. From Hawaii to Florida, Elvis was there in style. From 1954 to 1977, Elvis' movies, recording work, television appearances -- and most vitally -- concerts, saw Elvis travel all over North America. Everywhere he went he brought fun and solid entertainment to the people of the nation. Reflect for a moment on any one of these photos of Elvis, and you will see not only his joy of life, but also the joy he brought others. America is a country of freedom, and Elvis gave many, including myself, the freedom to expregs themselves with honesty. Music is healing; it's what keeps our dreams thriving. Elvis once said he liked pure entertainment without a message, but his honest artistic expression let most know of his true feelings about many issues. Patrio-tism was always an important element of this expression.

When Elvis added America The Beautiful to his shows during our bicentennial in 1976, he evoked in words what he had been saying in his work for over 20 years -- that America was beautiful. In this book Joseph Tunzi shows us the beauty of our country through pictures of one of its most famous citizens --Elvis Aron Presley.

Artist description "Presley, Elvis"

Elvis Aaron Presley - The King of Rock'n'Roll

(January 8, 1935, Tupelo, MS – August 16, 1977, Memphis, TN) 
 
Elvis Presley (full name Elvis Aaron Presley) is the most outstanding personality in showbiz ever since, and the most popular entertainer the world has ever seen! His musical influence within music history and its following generations of musicians is still unbroken. His huge 'Blast-Off' in the mid-1950s, the rising star from a simply called 'Hillbilly Cat' (at Sun Records) to a lascivious Rock'n'Roll singer with charisma, a male sex symbol (then at RCA Victor) soon popularized him as "The King of Rock'n'Roll" or simply "The King".
 
His first cut within his tremendous career happened between October 1958 and March 1960 while Elvis was on duty with the U.S. Army and stationed in Germany. It was there in 1959 when he met his later wife Priscilla Beaulieu at age 14. Elvis and Priscilla married on May 1, 1967 in Las Vegas (divorce in 1973). Elvis evolved into an all-around entertainer after his Army service and started starring in Hollywood films. 33 movies in total, including the two concert documentaries 'That's The Way It Is' and 'On Tour'. He again shook the world with his 1968 NBC Comeback TV Special after his movie period without any stage appearances.
 
This TV special included the first ever unplugged session presented together with musicians from the early days such as Scotty Moore and D.J. Fontana. 1973 saw THE TV mega event at all: Elvis Presley, 'Aloha From Hawaii via Satellite'! Elvis' Honolulu appearance, the first time that a show was broadcasted worldwide via satellite! He was ahead of his time! Elvis Presley had 148 US single chart hits, including some so-called double-sider when A- and B-side both hit the charts like his 1956 smash 'Don't Be Cruel b/w Hound Dog', plus 15 EP hits between 1956 and 1977. Two billion of sold media and sound carriers by Elvis Presley is the estimated number! He received 14 Grammy nominations until 1978 and three Grammy for his Gospel interpretations. Elvis was the youngest artist when honored with the Bing Crosby Award (Lifetime Achivement Award) in 1971.
 
He is presented in 5 Halls of Fame (Rock'n'Roll, Rockabilly, Country, Blues and Gospel). Six of his song interpretations are collected in the Grammy Hall of Fame. On top of it all Elvis Presley got the most gold and platinum records and a Diamond-Award. He definetly is the 'Best selling solo artist in U.S. History' (RIAA – Record Industry Association of America)! Elvis Presley CD albums, vinyl records as LPs or singles at 45rpm - Bear Family offers a huge number of various Elvis Presley CDs, vinyl-LPs and 45rpm singles, vinyl- and CD box sets, books and mags, DVDs, unique and extraordinairy memorabilia! Let's say it in the words of one of Elvis sixties album title: There is "Something For Everybody"! And hey, you name it! Elvis Presley is the King of Rock'n'Roll, the biggest icon in showbusiness, and a great person who lives on forever! Bear Family Records treats his legacy with the most respect and an optimum capacity of expert knowledge.
