Elvis Presley: Elvis - Die Legende

(Hannibal) Hardcover book (Authorized by the Graceland Archive) Hardback, german, 191 pages, colour illustrations throughout 24,8 x 2,4 x 28,5 cm

unmatched - everlasting - unforgotten


Elvis Presley, the King of Rock'n'Roll, died on August 16, 1977, but his legend lives on: Over the decades, new generations of fans have discovered his music and his films. The old ones never stopped listening to his classic songs, dancing to Hound Dog or Jailhouse Rock or dreaming to Always On My Mind. Elvis Presley was not just any rock singer. He was the epitome of the spirit of life.
Even if he shocked conservative America at first with his sexy charisma, body-hugging appearances and quiff of hair, he embodied the American dream to the full: coming from the poorest of backgrounds, a simple truck driver made it to internationally celebrated star and record millionaire. Journalist Gillian G. Gaar masterfully sketches this fascinating life path: from Elvis' humble beginnings in provincial Tupelo to the legendary recordings in Sam Phillips' Sun Studios to his rise to teen idol and finally to entertainer who thrilled audiences in Las Vegas with his polished shows. And to whom success not only brought fame and fortune, but also opened the way to excess and drug addiction.
Elvis - The Legend was created in close cooperation with Elvis' executors and with full access to the extensive archives of Graceland. More than 150 photos, supplemented by a wealth of memorabilia such as personal letters, prescriptions, telegrams, concert tickets and tour programs, illustrate Gaar's carefully researched facts. Elvis' work is considered as much as his private life. With its wealth of detail and exclusive presentation, Elvis - The Legend is a must-have for all those who have not forgotten the King. Elvis lives - in his songs, in YouTube clips, in concert recordings and generally in the cultural consciousness of the entire Western world, very recently also in the movie Elvis by director Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge, The Great Gatsby ...) with Tom Hanks in the role of his manager, the shady Colonel Tom Parker.

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!

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.
