Synopsis Elvis Day By Day 2018

2018 marked the 50th Anniversary of the legendary 1968 ‘ELVIS’ NBC TV-Special tha
t reignited Elvis’ career. Intended as a one-time-only TV event, it still stands as a turning-point in Elvis’ career 50 years later, and so does Elvis Presley. 

HBO followed in Elvis’ footsteps, investigating the comprehensive and creative journey from his childhood through the final 1976 Jungle Room recording sessions in the documentary ‘Elvis Presley: The Searcher’. 

Lisa Marie Presley followed in her father’s footsteps, recording a new duet with him for the 'Where No One Stands Alone' album that featured newly created versions of Elvis’ gospel classics. 

2018 also brought us books and magazines going beyond the man, the myth, the music and the artistry of the Elvis bootlegs. Books investigating Elvis’ relationship with the Afro-American community, counting down his best recordings and many other interesting subjects. 

The year saw hundreds of new CD, LP, single and digital music (re)releases. New and old movies were released on DVD, Blu-ray, streaming services and in cinemas around the world. Together with a Philharmonic Orchestra Elvis, sold out concert arenas across Europe for ‘The Wonder of You’ tour. 

An historic find this year was the unreleased home-recordings Elvis made while stationed in Germany. Great to hear him rehearse and fool around with friends 70 years later. 

It is an understatement to conclude that Elvis, 41 years after his untimely death, continues to inspire and entertain millions of fans around the world. Sony acknowledged the ongoing impact of his music and artistry with new RIAA and B.P.I. Gold and multi-Platinum sales awards, and the President of the United States honored Elvis with the Presidential Medal of Freedom. 

Everything Elvis Presley from 2018 is captured in this comprehensive, day-by-day yearbook. Fully illustrated, with new in-depth reviews, articles and interviews on the main releases of the year.

Revisit 2018 as it happened. All the news, the new books and magazines, new music and movie releases and everything else that happened in 2018 with additional in-depth reviews, articles and interviews. By fans for fans. 

The full color book measures 20 x 25 cm / 8 x 10 inch and contains 324 pages with again more than 500 illustrations.




Background Elvis Day By Day 2018

Soon after the release of the first volume in the 'Elvis Day By Day' series I received the question if I would cover more years than "just" 2019. Since that first book was an experiment, I had to let that question sink in for a while. 

As the 2019 and 2020 editions of 'Elvis Day By Day' received positive reviews, I decided to follow-up on those requests, stepping back in time to 2018. With all the news available, and thanks to the kind contributions by old and new guest-writers, sharing their perspectives on the main releases and events of 2018, all elements for a new volume were available. 

Compiling this yearbook was a great trip down memory-lane. Reading the past news on all the music, book and movie releases brought back many memories. News and events I had forgotten about. CDs, LPs, books, movies and documentaries I hadn't played, read or watched for a while got another spin.

The book was compiled and written by Kees Mouwen with additional contributions by Nigel Patterson and Piers Beagley from the Elvis Information Network, Rogier van Luyken from the Dutch It's Elvis Time magazine, Andreas Pendl from there German Elvis Presley Gesellschaft Ev. and other fans from around the world.

Everything Elvis Presley from 2018 was compiled on 300+ pages including over 40 in-depth reviews, interviews and articles. 

The foreword was written by renowned Elvis biographer Paul BĂ©lardSo "by popular demand" here is 'Elvis Day By Day 2018 - The year In Review', the follow-up to the successful 'Elvis Day By Day' 2019 and 2020 editions. 





Reactions on the book

The first reactions on the book:

"I bought this book without any hesitation. I already have the first two books which are for me absolute reference. I will have hours of fun guaranteed with the third. 

I would like the producer to give us a volume on the year 2017, it's one of the biggest years of the 40th anniversary of Elvis's death ... that would be really great. I advise you to all those books which are very precious to me. They are of a very high quality worthy of the king of rock n roll, with superb photos. 

Thank you to the producer and his team, I wish them long life and keep up the excellent work. I am already looking forward to a fourth volume and more more more ... the sky is a no limit." - Martin St-Pierre.

"This is gonna be a great book, and Kees, I wish you a lot of success with this book, what a great initiative." - Robert Frieser.

"I was very impressed with the first edition. Look forward to others. This is from a fan’s fan point of view. Carry on Kees." - Phil Gelormine.

"I may be slightly biased but my copy of the book has arrived in Australia and it is a real stunner. A very eye-catching design and reading back through some 2018 articles made me want to revisit some all-too-soon forgotten books, vinyl and DVDs. A very nice addition to the collection." - Piers Beagley.


"The 2018 book is terrific and superbly made. Congratulations to you and your team. For me the 2018 edition is the best one yet in this series yet!  


The other 2019 and 2020 releases are fantastic too, but a little bit different in the details. Isn't it amazing what still can be said and reported about the only King of Music and Entertainment, and the beautiful products keep coming out.


Unfortunately, Elvis passed away physically over 44 years ago; but what a fantastic musical legacy he left behind. Not only the 1128 shows he did between July 1969 and June 1977, but also the 33 great films he made and countless fantastic studio session recordings he left us.


It is always a pleasure to hear an Elvis record or CD or LP. No matter which one. The man was a phenomenon, and out of reach for any other musician. Only he is the only true King that the word has ever applied to!


Please continue this series with 2021 and volumes on older years, going back from 2017. Collectors and fans will love it. It makes a big difference to just browse on-line through a small or big screen or hold an exceptionally made book like this in your hands with an unbelievable amount of information and details. Well done Kees. Great job!" - Harald (Germany).


"Thank you for all the hard work that you continue to do. This 2018 retrospective really is bringin’ it back." - Anthony Stuchbury (United Kingdom).
