INTRODUCTION
It is truly a privilege and honor, thank you Joseph Tunzi for this opportunity to write about the greatest entertainer and artist I have ever
known, in twenty-eight years as a recording engineer. Not only were we professionally bound together, we were best of friends. As for me as a
recording engineer, Elvis was a dream come true. When he walked into the studio, he brought with him all the ingredients to cut hit records. The record speaks for itself. He motivated everyone from me the engineer, to the musicians, to the man making the coffee, to go above and beyond our capabilities. We never started a session when he came into the studio. There was at least an hour or more of him creating the proper atmosphere that was a relaxed one and positive. If you could visualize a family gathering, that’s what it looked like. A lot of laughter, asking about the wife and kids, talking about life in general. Then we would get down to the business of recording.

There were sessions that never got off of the ground. The feeling and magic wasn’t happening and he had the sense to call it off and say will pick it up tomorrow. Elvis always put a lot of emphasis on the feeling in the music. It was the ingredient he knew that the listening public could relate to and man he was so right. You see a lot of music fans don’t know a downbeat from an upbeat, or 3/4 time from 4/4 time. But they know a feel when the feeling was right, Elvis felt it from the musicians and the musicians felt it from Elvis. And this vicious wonderful circle was started. And Elvis and the musicians could sense it from the behavior of the producer, engineer and everyone in the control room. That added that much more fuel to the fire. You see there was visual contact between all of us. And when everyone came into the control room for the playback, man, we would rock out. And Elvis loved to see that kind of reaction. It fired him up that much more. It wasn’t a put-on - it was for real. Right now I am sitting here with a big smile and a wonderful feeling recalling those great moments in my life. I wish the people reading this book could have been there to see what I mean. I am sure you have seen that when you went to one of his live shows. When Elvis came into the studio, it wasn’t work. It was pure non-adulterated pleasure.

As millions and millions of people around the world were saddened at the passing of Elvis, brothers and sisters be not sad. Thank God Almighty for the time he gave us Elvis Presley. Just think for a moment if we didn’t have 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.
