Elvis On Television Book Released


The Boxcar book "Elvis On Television 1956 - 1960" has been released. It celebrates the 60th Anniversary Year of Elvis' first appearance on national television, this limited edition 400-page hard cover book (with slipcase), is a comprehensive illustration of Elvis Presley's early television appearances. 

From the press-release:
From his first national introduction on the Dorsey Brothers 'Stage Show' in January 1956, through his appearances on other TV shows hosted by famous celebrities such as Milton Berle, Steve Allen and Ed Sullivan (including the infamous 'from the waist up' show in January 1957), this book goes well behind the scenes of each show documenting his arrival, the rehearsals and the shows themselves, all the way through to Elvis' post-army appearance on 'The Frank Sinatra-Timex Show' in May 1960. It was to be his last television appearance for eight years. 

Supported by a fully comprehensive text, collected here are scores of historical documents, memorabilia and hundreds of rare photographs - many of which have never before been published. This book will captivate the reader throughout, and is the most detailed document on the history of 'Elvis on Television' from 1956-60.

Elvis Files Volume 8 Book Released


The book "Elvis Files Vol.8 1976 - 1977" has been shipped to the dealers. This last volume in the series covers the final years of Elvis' life, the continuous energy-draining treadmill of tours, the final recording sessions and the last CBS TV Special. While Elvis was not a well man in the last twenty months of his life, collectors will surely find this detailed look into these last years not only an emotional ride but also a part of Elvis' history that cannot be ignored.
