Elvis Presley: The Atomic Powered Singer - Brian Petersen

English, 240 pages/Seiten, paperback, 29x21 cm. A day by day calendar of El's activities in 1956 - professional and private - with many b/w photos / Zeitreise durch Elvis' Aktivitäten 1956 mit vielen seltenen schwarzweiss Fotos.

Foreword

It has always puzzled me why at the same time Elvis Presley could be the most wellknown artist in the world, yet the facts relating to his career have either been insufficient, incorrect, missing or misinterpreted.

With Brian Petersen's debut work "The Atomic Powered Singer" this situation is de?nitely changing in a most surprising way. Brian, born in Denmark but a Swedish resident, has managed to compile a calendar of Elvis Presley's whereabouts in 1956. Never has so much detail been available to all those music historians who really want to understand the astonishing rise of Elvis Presley.

"The Atomic Powered Singer" is a day by day calendar of Elvis Presley's 1956 - the year that took him from being "the most promising C & W artist" to movie star status. Through newspaper ads for his concerts, press clippings and many rare photos this book leaves no doubt about the authenticity of its information. Through "summary pages" at the end of each month you get an
easy overview of all Elvis' activities - professional and private.

240 pages of solid facts - a must for any true, rock historian. The only burning
question that the book doesn't answer! When do we get a follow up?

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.
