Elvis Presley: Elvis On Stage - Keith Alverson

(2000/Ed Bonja & Henrik Knudsen) Hardback, 22.5x31 cm, 112 pages, completely full page stage photos 1973-77 in full color.
An amazing photo book! Very rare and hard to find today.
 -
Elvis On Stage is a hard cover book with full-color Elvis photos, taken by the author when attending Elvis Presley shows. Most of the Elvis photos were taken on tour, because in Las Vegas no cameras were allowed. The book is very well done and contains good shots of Elvis on stage starting from 1973 to 1977.

Foreword

This photo book has been anticipated for over twenty years; and, finally, it is ready for everyone to see! The year Elvis passed away, I received so many letters and phone calls requesting a full-color photo book of my personal photos. Well, as most of you know now, my photographs are really not personal anymore. Since I took my first shot of Elvis in I973, my photos have been (and continue to be) circulated all over the world. Initially, they were available only through the fan clubs in the States, then through the fan clubs in Europe and Asia. Eventually, fans from every country in the world were contacting me for my photos of Elvis. All this occurred before I977; so, I don't want anyone who was not a fan twenty years ago to think that I am now. after all these years, capitalizing on the Elvis name and image. All the fans that know me or knew of me from the concert years in the seventies, know who I really am and exactly what this book is about. I know that i don’t have to explain to anyone about the sincerity of this project or my love for this great entertainer we all call ELVlS. I am not going to tell you (again) what a wonderful. talented and dynamic gift Elvis was to the world - you’ve heard and read all there is to know about that already.

I am simply hoping to illustrate what I witnessed during those incredible years of Elvis on tour (through my eyes) as I captured the REAL THING on stage. It has taken this long to trust and believe in someone that I can work along side of to bring you, the fans, what you so deservedly desire. This photo book consists of my favorite shots of Elvis that can only really be appreciated in full color and full page quality. where most of the previous books have failed with their reduced-size photos or black and white versions of what was originally shot in color. You will notice in this book that some of my photos are printed in the horizontal format, rather than vertically. Although this may be a bit unusual, I feel very strongly that those particular shots need to be printed horizontally to preserve the integrity of the shot as I saw it through my lens, without printing the shots smaller to fit the vertical format or, worse yet, cropping out some of the photograph itself.

I have been offered photo book deals for many years -  mainly black and white with some color, but always accompanied by a lot of text (information you have already read before numerous times); so, I turned down those offers and waited for the right time and the right kind of offer -  the best proposal. I will not attempt to glamorize my experiences while following Elvis on tour, but simply relate to you what I saw with my photographs which are included in the following pages. Over the years, I have always said; “l never have to sell my photos; they simply sell themselves without any assistance from me. When you had the subject i had to work with, it was not a difficult task.” I say in all sincerity that it was a tremendous privilege to photograph Elvis, and it was a very special time in my life - a period of time that i will forever cherish and  NEVER, EVER FORGET!

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.
