Day By Day 2019 Book

The book “Elvis Day By Day 2019 - The Year in Review” has been released. The 300-page book is available in two editions; a hardcover and paperback edition. 

The first reactions are good! Lee Dawson on the Elvis Express Radio Show: “It’s packed, there is so much color, it’s beautiful … It’s brilliant , nothing sure of absolutely brilliant”. “It is kind of like the old annuals, the Elvis Specials”. This could be the new one of those". “Get it if you can, you will not be disappointed”. 

Henrik Knudsen from the Danish Memphis Mansion quoted: "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 hope this is the start of a new series”. 

The Elvis Information Network may be biased (as we contributed to the book) but it is a good one.

And Elvis Presley's former girlfriend Linda Thompson liked the cover on Twitter :-) 

Joan Gansky reviewed the book for the Elvis Information Network website. Read the summary:

What an amazing book this is! This book is not only a daily diary of all Elvis news for 2019, it contains precise and detailed facts on every album, CD, book etc. released, including European issues and "bootlegs" as well as FTD releases… they are all here!

Older Elvis fans will probably remember the "Elvis Special" annuals put together by Albert Hand in the UK when Elvis was alive. 

The real impact of this compendium is to discover that something "ELVIS" was published or announced, or featured in the media, almost every day last year. And that's without including the regular UK tabloid rubbish!

The day-by-day information is laid out in three-columns and is easy to read. With plenty of full-page images of Elvis, for a self-produced book, it is beautifully designed.

Along with the daily news there are detailed articles pertinent to these happenings of 2019, written by Elvis experts in their field.

I must also comment on the great quality of the photos included throughout the book, that definitely enhance the overall appeal and the carefully researched and detailed written information.

Of course almost all of this can be found if you want to search the internet - the acknowledgements indicate just how many sources the author uses - however the book puts it all together in a much more accessible way. And what a delight to find a detailed Index at the back.

Having this book handy to refer to when a thought or question regarding Elvis pops into conversation (or your own head!) - will prove invaluable… especially the size being so compact!  I find my heavy, over-sized "deluxe" Elvis books get "used" less and less these days.

I do try to keep up with all things "Elvis" but was pleasantly surprised to read something new to me on nearly every page! It kept me engrossed throughout - as I learned details and facts that were either new to me, or I had, sadly, forgotten. I thoroughly recommend this book - if you are reading this, then you are an Elvis fan, and I am sure you will enjoy and appreciate it too!

From the Press release:

2019 was a year of many celebrations. It marked the 50th anniversary of Elvis Presley's triumphant return to live performing and the release of two of his most iconic recordings, "Suspicious Minds" and “In The Ghetto”. 

This was celebrated with several milestone releases like the "Elvis Live 1969" deluxe 11 CD box, a vinyl re-issue of "From Elvis in Memphis" and the sessions for that album on the “American Sound 1969” 5 CD set, a Record Store Day 2-LP and the “Elvis Now In Person” book. 2019 also marked the 60th anniversary of the release of the classic "A Date With Elvis" LP, his trip to Paris and much more. 

Sadly 2019 also marks the 42nd anniversary of his untimely death. Elvis Presley has (almost) been gone for longer than he was among us, but he left a permanent mark. His cultural impact may very well have been more visible and ‘alive’ during the last 42 years than when he was actually alive. And so is the Elvis-world today. 

The almost 500 news-updates about Elvis Day By Day this year about the many new books, CDs, LPs, movie releases on DVD, Blu-ray and in movie theaters around the world, appearances on music and movie charts (and still topping some of those) and still playing sell-out arenas clearly show that Elvis Presley still matters today. 

Especially when younger generations discover his music through digital releases and Spotify and start to buy re-issues of his work on old fashioned vinyl. 

Today’s Elvis news primarily finds its way to fans through on-line channels and in summarized form in newsletters and fan-club magazines. Based on the Elvis Day By Day news blog, and with additional and exclusive in-depth reviews by Nigel Patterson and Piers Beagley from the Elvis Information Network, the "Elvis Day By Day 2019 - The year in Review" book compiles a comprehensive and illustrated chronology of ‘everything Elvis from 2019’ in one physical reference book. 

The full color book measures 20 x 25 cm, contains 300 pages with more than 550 illustrations. Click on the previews to enlarge them.
