Review Elvis Day By Day 2020 by Carlos Ares - A Helluva Idea

Elvis Presley author, fan and collector Carlos R. Ares, wrote a review of 'Elvis Day By Day 2020' entitled 'A Helluva Idea'. Thank you for the compliments!


A Helluva Idea

When I was just 12 years old back in 1961, thanks to the American 'Teen Screen' I discovered the existence of an English magazine devoted 100% to Elvis Presley: the glorious 'Elvis Monthly'.

Very soon I began to receive my subscriptions of the mag from far away England. In them I discovered both the pen and heart of a true pioneer of the Elvis World: Albert Hand.

I vividly recall my anticipation and subsequent joy at receiving his incredible 'Elvis Specials' in which one could read about everything that had happened Elvis-wise in any given year not just once but over and over again.

'Day By Day 2020' brought me that same feeling.

Now, 43 years after Elvis’ passing, it is unbelievable that a 311-page book compiling all the Elvis Presley releases of 2020 alone can be put out.

And the book is far from being simply a list of the releases for it includes a thorough and exhaustive analysis of each and every single one of them.

Research, compilation, editing and design were carried out by Kees Mouwen, with editorial assistance and proofreading by Nigel Patterson. Many articles by (and with) Piers Beagley and Nigel Patterson were extracted with permission from the Elvis Information Network website to complete the picture of the year.

I must mention Kees' wit when analyzing some key releases such as ‘Elvis At The Hayride’ ('Little Mamma' with better audio, 'I Forgot To Remember To Forget' at its correct speed) by Henrik Knudsen - Memphis Mansion.

Also the fantastic in-depth analysis of the FTD's 'Something For Everybody' and 'That's The Way It Is - 50th Anniversary Collectors’ Edition' and many more.

Needless to say that I feel more than proud to be part of this great piece with my book 'Elvis@Argentina 1963-1969' that has gotten such a wonderful review.

Thanks once again, Kees!

Just quit whatever you are doing and go out and get this wonderful piece of work available at Henrik Knudsen's Memphis Mansion before it sells out.

2021 is already in the works, no doubt it will be another hit!
