Elvis Day By Day Book 2020

Poplar Tunes Publishing and the Memphis Mansion are proud to announce the release of ‘Elvis Day By Day 2020 – The Year In Review’, a yearbook about him. The follow-up to the successful first volume in this series, 'Elvis Day bay Day 2019'. 

The book was compiled and written by Kees Mouwen with additional contributions by Nigel Patterson and Piers Beagley - from the Elvis Information Network - and other fans from around the world.

The foreword was written by renowned Elvis Presley author Alanna Nash.  

We compiled all the Elvis Presley news from all over the world (wide web) and added 50 in-depth reviews, articles and interviews, covering both the important as well as more odd-ball releases of the year, in one complete and fully illustrated reference-book. 

The 600 news-updates on everything that happened in the Elvis world this year clearly show that Elvis Presley still matters today! 

The full color book measures 20 x 25 cm / 8 x 10 inch and contains 312 pages with more than 550 illustrations. The release is set for the second half of January 2021.

Description 'A Yearbook About Him'

2020 is a year none of us will forget. The Covid-19 pandemic affected almost all aspects of our lives. At the same time, we tried to adapt to a new normal in which "social distancing can't be wrong", with Elvis Presley as a good distraction.   

2020 brought us several great Elvis releases on CD and vinyl (lots of it!), many new books, movie releases on DVD, Blu-ray and in cinemas around the world. We had to say good-bye to friends from the Elvis world and there was the Covid-19 pandemic, which had a huge impact on the Elvis world too.  

2020 also marked several anniversaries. We celebrated the 85th anniversary year with a virtual Elvis Week. Sixty years ago Elvis Presley appeared on Frank Sinatra’s 'Welcome Home Elvis’ TV-show, released the classic ‘Elvis Is Back’ album and his first gospel LP 'His Hand In Mine'. 

This year also marked the 50th anniversary of Elvis’ On Stage season and album, breaking his own attendance records, the sold out Houston Astrodome concerts and Elvis’ legendary visit to President Nixon at the White House. 

But above all, 2020 marked the 50th anniversary of the legendary Nashville Marathon recording sessions and the release of the movie 'Elvis: That's The Way It Is'. 

Everything Elvis Presley from 2020 is captured in this comprehensive, day-by-day yearbook. Fully illustrated, with new in-depth reviews, articles and interviews on the main - and odd-ball - releases of the year. The good, the bad, the funny and the sad, and even the news and reviews you may have missed. All packed in one comprehensive book to revisit 2020 as it happened.

Praise for Elvis Day By Day 2019 - The Year In Review

In January 2020 I released the first volume of 'Elvis Day By Day - The Year in Review'. The reactions were positive and several readers described the book as a 2.0 version of the annual Elvis Specials that were published from 1963 to 1985. 

  • "This is an informative and easy to read book for fans and collectors, only when you read it you know what you missed. It should have been done years ago."  
  • "I definitely recommend this book. It offers an excellent overview of everything Elvis has done in 2019."
  • "It’s brilliant, nothing sure of absolutely brilliant … Get it if you can, you will not be disappointed."
  •  "It is extremely well laid out - in full colour, easily accessible and fully illustrated."
  • "There is nothing like this book, very original, and stands up to the best books out there of Elvis 10/10.
  • "What an amazing book this is! … I do try to keep up with all things Elvis but was pleasantly surprised to read something new to me on nearly every page! … Of course almost all of this can be found if you want to search the internet, however the book puts it all together in a much more accessible way.
