Presley, Elvis: Elvis & Heli

(2020 Booy Verlag) Paperback, German language, 212 pages, 40 chapters, 13 photos, 21 fan letters

Heli von Westrem was more than friends with Elvis Presley during his service as G.I. She gives us an insight into her life at that time. She does not want to watch the partly hair-raising legend formation any longer inactive. Heli takes us with him and Elvis to Goethestraße 14, to the Friedberger Kaserne and to Paris. An alleged kidnapping of Elvis on the Johannisberg triggered an influx of fan letters to her. Some of them are contained in the book. - Helis' memories and the letters are a mirror of that time.
Elvis and Heli loved each other in the late 50's during his military service in Germany. Startum, love, Rock 'n' Roll, thirst for freedom and the post-war period characterize Heli von Westrems autobiography. Author Heli von Westrem was born as Heli Priemel on 28.6.1943 in Potsdam-Babelsberg (Ufa-Stadt); in 1945 she fled to Garmisch-Partenkirchen and then on to Frankfurt am Main. Heli von Westrem took part in many movies of her parents. In 1957 she was the first model of a fashion show of the fashion house Pfüller. In 1959 she appeared on 1st German Television as "Annabell" in Hans Joachim Kulenkampff's advice programme "Sieben auf einen Streich" (Seven in one go) with the then pop star Willy Hagara. In May of the same year her relationship with Elvis Presley began. From 1961 onwards she perfected her language skills with stays abroad in England, Spain and France. She received her Cambridge diploma in London. Heli von Westrem worked as an assistant director at the Hessischer Rundfunk. From 1964 she was a stewardess with Air France. One year after Elvis' wedding, in 1968, she married Rolf Staguhn, an outstanding tennis player whose playing quality was comparable to that of Boris Becker. Both have their birthdays on the same day. In the 70s, Heli von Westrem opened a boutique together with her sister. This was followed by appearances as a model and as a presenter at fashion shows. In 1978 she met Rudolf Constantin, a gifted opera singer who looked like Elvis and who, like Elvis, enchanted women in his genre, the opera. In 1982 Heli and Rudolf Constantin got married.

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.

Customer evaluation for "Elvis & Heli"
6 Oct 2020

lesenswert und unterhaltsam

Ich lebe in Bad Nauheim und kenne die Verlegerin persönlich sehr gut. Natürlich war keiner von uns dabei, wenn sich Elvis und Heli alleine trafen. Dass sie sich trafen und gut kannten, steht allerdings außer Zweifel. Es gibt noch andere Bücher, sowie die Bravo, welche Heli in Berichten erwähnen.

Das Buch ist leicht, locker und unterhaltsam zu lesen, lässt uns viel über Moral und Politik der damaligen Zeit erfahren und - ja über eine Liebe, von der die Welt bisher nicht viel wusste.

Die Verlegerin ist kein "Dummi", die sich von einer Geschichte einwickeln lässt ohne zu hinterfragen. Die Arbeit am Buch habe ich mitverfolgt. Das Buch ist mindestens genauso wahr wie viele andere Bücher auch, die ehemalige Freundinnen von Elvis schrieben.

Authentisch

Das Buch ELVIS & HELI wird von vielen Lesern geradezu verschlungen. Heli nimmt den Leser mit in ihr Leben. Wir erfahren alles aus erster Hand. Was heutzutage über Elvis verbreitet wird, stimmt Heli traurig. Ich schlug ihr vor, dass ich einen Verlag gründe und sie schreibt. Nun existiert das, was sie zu erzählen hat, schwarz auf weiß. Sie schreibt auch über ihr Gefühl, das sie eine Zeitlang hatte, das Elvis noch lebt. Das ist legitim.

Fragwürdieges Buchprojekt !!

Ein Buch welches jeder hätte schreiben können.Es gibt keine hundertprozentigen Beweise dafür, dass die Autorin Elvis tatsächlich gekannt bzw. sich sogar mit ihm getroffen hat. Die Texte beinhalten einige Fakten über Elvis Zeit in Deutschland jedoch auch sehr viele Phantasien der Autorin deren Echtheit in Frage zu stellen sind, So hat Elvis z.B. im September 1977 noch gelebt ?!. Ein signiertes Plattencover und
ein Bild aus dem Lido in Paris welches angeblich die Autorin mit Elvis und seiner Entourage an einem Tisch sitzend zeigen sind die einzigen Beweise im Bezug einer Bekanntschaft zu Elvis. Das ganze ist ein sehr fragwürdiges Projekt !!
