July 06 - Sold Out and Guaranteed to Blow Your Mind

Jon Daly, owner of the E.P. Pawn Shop, announced the release of his first book 'Guaranteed To Blow Your Mind'.  

Publicity stated: It is the stuff of legend: imagine buying an Elvis collection, and then stumbling onto a stack of unpublished Elvis negatives… This is precisely what happened to Jon Daly of the E.P. Blvd. Pawn Shop about a year ago. Jon is proud to be able to present these amazing photos in his first book 'Elvis: Guaranteed To Blow Your Mind'.

The book details the November 1976 West Coast Tour, and does so in remarkable detail. With full cooperation of Elvis’ road manager, Charles Stone, who also wrote the introduction, the book gives you unique VIP access on that tour. There are over 150 photographs, unpublished paperwork from Colonel Parker’s office, insights from the musicians, memorabilia, tour and recording details, original advertisements, reviews, memories from the fans and more.

There are also unique fresh insights into Elvis’ sometimes complicated relationship with Colonel Parker, which will be of particular interest to those who have seen the new movie featuring Tom Hanks. This book challenges the viewpoint as presented in the movie and offers a lot of interesting food for thought.

Elvis had lost a lot of weight and was looking and sounding better than he had in a while. He was excited about performing again, and in many of the photo presented in the book you can clearly see that sense of joy in his face. One of the coolest Elvis books to come out in this special year, the 45th anniversary of Elvis’ passing. 

The 152-page hardback book is printed in a very limited edition.
