Elvis Presley: Private Elvis - Elvis In Germany - The Missing Years (Book+CD)

160 pages/Seiten; 29x24.5 cm; Hardcover/gebunden: This is the legendary collection of photographs a girlfriend of Elvis's took when he was stationed as a G.I. in Germany. Not all of them up to today's technical standard, but a great and fascinating document.
 -
Contains free CD (early recordings plus rare interviews)


"Although the life of Elvis Presley was filled with controversy and fans continue to debate the evolution of his musical style and deliberate over his personal extravagance, it is widely acknowledged that the period between 1958 and 1960 when he was drafted into the US Army and posted to Germany was a crucial watershed both in terms of his career and in his private life. It is also the least well documented period of his life.

Using scores of photographs never seen before and some only ever published in newspapers of the period combined with eye-witness accounts which help to document his movements, PRIVATE ELVIS is the only accurate study of this rock legend as a soldier. The book traces the story of Presley’s two years in the army from the trauma of his mother’s death just three weeks before he left for Germany, through the media circus of his arrival and the constant attention of the press during his stay, his first experiments with drugs, the girls he was and was not involved with and his first encounters with his future wife, Priscilla, to his triumphant return to America and a complete change of direction in his career.

With new evidence relating to Presley’s alleged affair with actress Vera Tschechowa and a whole catalogue of photographs from the private collection of a previously unknown German girl with whom Presley struck up a relationship, PRIVATE ELVIS shows the intimate side of a man who gathered his family and friends around him in Germany to combat his loneliness and homesickness. Through interviews with visitors to the house Presley rented in Bad Nauheim for himself and his father, grandmother and entourage, the often bizarre events which occurred are recounted in detail as are his nightclub jaunts in Munich and his two little known visits to Paris."

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.
