May 31 - Golden Boy Elvis (Updated)

The new edition of the German 'Golden Boy Elvis' magazine is due soon. 

Publicity stated: The main theme of the new 60-page issue is FTD's mega-box-set 'The Making of Blue Hawaii'. In a mammoth joint project our team looked at the original LP, the books as well as the CDs with the masters and tons of outtakes. 

Also reviewed in detail are the 'Let Me Be There' 3-CD-set, the '8mm Elvis - The Forgotten Format' book, the LP's 'Elvis Live 1972', 'Burning Love - The RCA Rehearsals' and part 3 in the Bear Family CD-series 'The Elvis Presley Connection'. 

The 'In Memoriam' section shows us once again clearly how finite our time on earth is, as we had to say goodbye to Barbara Gray, Harry Belafonte, Gordon Lightfoot, "Red" Robinson and Bill Baize, among others.

In the new series 'Pieces of My Life' Helmut Radermacher recalls some of the adventures from his life, starting with 'Tony Sheridan, Elvis and Me'. And finally, in the 'Songs From A to Z' series we cover 'Don't Ask Me Why' and 'Don't Be Cruel'.
