Elvis Presley: Elvis Presley - Unseen Archives by Marie Clayton

Gebundene Ausgabe - 383 Seiten -Parragon Inc - Englisch

Introduction
Elvis Presley burst onto the American music scene in 1956, although he had been well-known locally around Memphis for some time beforehand. He quickly became synonymous with the new rock 'n' roll music and teenagers everywhere took him to their hearts.

His sensual performing style whipped his female fans into a frenzy, which initially caused much criticism in the press — but the resulting publicity did his career no harm at all. After he was drafted and did his service in the US army, without complaint or favors, opinion about him in the press began to change, and on his return his new, mature style helped him to reach an even wider audience.

Not content with being perhaps the world's most popular singer, he also moved into acting and soon took Hollywood by storm. During his career he made 31 movies — all of which were a success at the box office — and in the middle of the 1960s he was the highest-paid actor in Hollywood. After he returned to the concert stage in the 1970s his shows in Las Vegas were legendary, and he was soon dubbed the `World's Greatest Entertainer'.

Elvis Presley: Unseen Archives charts the fascinating life of Elvis, right from his humble beginnings to his tragic death as a superstar and its aftermath. The exciting collection of photographs featured not only show him performing, but also include candid shots documenting his private life and a comprehensive selection of stills taken during the making of his movies.

Many of the photographs are not clearly dated in the archives, but in this book they have been carefully placed in context with what was happening in his career at around the time they were taken. The pictures are accompanied by detailed and perceptive captions, which give a rounded portrait of the world's most famous singer. Elvis Presley was a phenomenon and his legacy continues to captivate people even today — the King may be dead, but his memory lingers on.

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!
