The Official Collector's Edition

Due soon is volume 8 in the “Elvis: The Official Collector's Edition” magazine series. This volume is entitled “The American Dream”.


Elvis: The Official Collector's Edition is pleased to present its eighth installment, The American Dream, a tribute to Elvis's hometown and the journey it set him on—a journey that would end with a position as rock & roll's greatest pioneer. 

Elvis's 13 formative years in Mississippi showed him how to live in America, survive the Depression, follow his dreams and never take no for an answer. With the help of exclusive photos and commentary from Priscilla Presley, Elvis: The Official Collector's Edition is able to tell the complete story for the first time.

DiCaprio To Play Sam Philips

Leonardo DiCaprio has signed on to produce and star in an upcoming, still-untitled biopic about Sun Records founder Sam Phillips, the rock pioneer who produced landmark 

records by Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and many more. 

Mick Jagger will also serve as a producer on the Paramount Pictures film, based on the Peter Guralnick's book Sam Phillips: The Man Who Invented Rock 'N' Roll. According to 

Deadline, Jagger will hold a similar role in helping to foster the Phillips story to the silver screen as the Rolling Stones singer played on the HBO music drama Vinyl.

Phillips founded the Memphis-based Sun Records in 1952, setting up the famed Sun Studio, where Presley laid down his earliest recordings, including first single "That's All Right," 

considered one of the earliest rock n' roll releases.

While DiCaprio's Appian Way secured the rights to Sam Phillips: The Man Who Invented Rock 'N' Roll, Variety reports that the role of the Sun Records honcho likely won't be the actor's first big screen role since his Oscar-winning turn in The Revenant.
