Elvis Presley: The Family Album - George Klein

(2009/LITTLE BROWN) Clothbound, English, 28x24 cm, 142 pages of rare photos in b&w and color, plus comments. Great, mostly unpublished material. Elvis Highlight!

The family album you are holding chronicles the life of Elvis Presley in rare and intimate photographs, many of them never published before. Here is the King on the day he joined RCA Records, in a tense moment backstage before appearing on The Ed Sullivan Show, and flirting with Ann-Margret on the set of his debut movie, Love Me Tender. Pictures of his youth capture his life at home, at the piano with his parents, playing with the family dog, and posing with his high school prom date. Later photographs reveal the years at Graceland, with Priscilla and their daughter, Lisa Marie And throughout are images of Elvis with famous friends and admirers, from B. B. King to Johnny Cash, Liberate to Richard Nixon. 


Author and longtime friend George Klein was with Elvis at many key moments and recounts firsthand recollections of school days and life on the road, as well as stories of Elvis's women, cars, and clothes, and the various homes in which Elvis lived over the years. With more than one hundred full-color and black-and-white pictures, this intimate look at Presley both onstage and at home captures his life as only a vintage photo album could. 
Authorized by and created in partnership with the Presley Estate 

GEORGE KLEIN'S lifelong friendship with Elvis Presley began when the two attended Humes High School together. Klein went on to travel the country with Presley and even invited him to serve as best man at his wedding. Now a major Memphis media personality and host for the past two decades of The Elvis Hour radio program, Klein has received numerous awards for his work in the field, including Memphis's "No. 1 Disc Jockey" from Billboard magazine and the Memphis Legend Award from Harrah's Casino.

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.
