Elvis Presley: My Treasured Memories of Elvis

(2009/MEMPHIS EXPLORATIONS) Hardcover, 22x29 cm, 106 pages of rare color photos.

Introduction
I met Judy about five years ago even though we grew up in the same town and have much in common — not the least of which is a love for Elvis. While shopping one day at Nordstrom, where Judy works, a saleswoman noticed my Elvis purse and asked me, "Do you know Judy up in petites? She's an Elvis fan too." Curious, I went up the escalator, looking for a woman who might be my age or older. I put my pink "Love Me Tender" bag on the counter and asked, "Are you Judy? I hear you're an Elvis fan. So am I."

Within minutes, Judy's warmth and effervescent personality encircled me like a hug and I realized she was no average Elvis fan. We traded Elvis milestones like Elvis fans do when they meet for the first time: How many times did you see him perform in concert? How many times have you been to Graceland? When did you first love Elvis? And then came the bombshell — the revelations that trumped anything I had to offer in my modest Elvis life: Judy not only met Elvis, she kissed him four times, sat ringside for the iconic "68 Comeback Special," and was one of those famous "superfans" who author Jerry Hopkins profiled in his 1971 Elvis biography.

And then, almost as an afterthought, she mentioned her photographs. After regaining my composure I realized Judy was what we call in'the newspaper business "a good story." I suggested our local newspaper, where I worked at the time, profile Judy in the arts and entertainment section. There she was, in full color, with a big smile on her face, telling her story and talking about her photos. The newspaper reprinted an image of Elvis with his arm around Judy.
And here we are today; the book you are holding is the result of that serendipitous meeting at Nordstrom. This book took a lot of coaxing. Judy never gave up her devotion to Elvis, but after he died she moved on with her life, as many of us did. She married a wonderful man named Doug and raised two children. She became an All-Star saleswoman at Nordstrom. And she kept her most precious candids and concert photos tucked away in scrapbooks, hidden at a friend's house for safekeeping. Although Judy is a member of that small network of Elvis fans who shared candid moments with him in the 60s and 70s, it's not in her nature to talk about herself. But you'll soon discover this book has much to offer.

Judy's stories take you back to the time when Elvis was at his peak. She shares hilarious stories about camping out at Graceland, waiting for any chance to see Elvis. She talks about the signed condolence card she got from Elvis and Priscilla when Judy's mother was killed. And then there are the photographs — some of the most recognizable images in the Elvis world — and not until now is Judy getting the credit she deserves for taking them.

Judy taught herself how to take photos so she could keep for a lifetime her memories of Elvis. And now she shares them with you, and even more importantly, puts the images together with the real stories behind them.
You're in for a treat.

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.
