February 10 - From Memphis to Taipeh

The Asian Elvis Presley vinyl reference guide 'From Memphis to Taipeh' by Dutch authors Dick Dekker and Ferry van der Werf, has been released. This is the very first book on Elvis' Asian vinyl records and it covers the 10 inch and 12 inch releases from six major Asian countries: Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, and Thailand. Other countries and formats will be covered in additional volumes. 

The hardcover book lists over 500 different records on 500 plus pages. Almost 2,500 pictures in total. The covers and labels are reproduced with great care so you can enjoy the many mistakes. These are sometimes hilarious and often tell a lot about how and why these records were made. The book details these and other background information on all releases.

You can buy it directly from the author: >>> mail Dick Dekker.
