May 22 - Elvis November 1956

Paul Belard announced the release of a new installment in his visual biography series entitled 'Elvis November 1956'. The release date for this 214 -page book was set for June 2021. 

SynopsisThat month was an interesting one for Elvis. Not only was his first film, Love Me Tender, released in cinemas, but Elvis enjoyed a 10 day holiday in Las Vegas (where he attended Liberace’s show and visited him backstage), went riding on his Harley Davidson with Natalie Wood and friend Nick Adams, attended a charity football event in Memphis, and went on a four-day tour performing shows to enthusiastic crowds in Toledo, Ohio; Cleveland; Troy, Ohio; and Louisville, Kentucky. 

As usual, Paul Belard captures all of these through a combination of great color and b&w images and interesting archival material, much of which is rare. 

Copies of the book can be ordered directly from the author and will be available from Amazon.
