The HMV Years
Elvis The Best Of British Vol 1 - OUT NOW
Elvis: The Best of British – Volume One (The HMV Years) is the accumulation of over five years research and a lifetime of collecting Elvis memorabilia, to pictorially illustrate this book which contains the whole story of Elvis on the HMV label. Not only are all the record labels and sleeves presented in stunning colour but also it contains a great amount of HMV publicity material, much of which has never been seen before. Add to this the full story of every song released on the label, together with a pictorial time line of Elvis recording and performing the songs which completely document the history of the Elvis British musical revolution.
The book is packed with many rare, relevant and unseen photographs of Elvis as he recorded and performed the songs. Each song has a chapter of its own, complete with songwriter biographies, interviews and photographs and the various charts in which the song featured. In addition and to give this untold story complete justice, the book will be published in the high quality size and format that has become the yardstick with the recent Erik Lorentzen and Pal Granlund Elvis publications. Also included with the book are two exclusive free CDs, loaded with every Elvis track released by HMV. Added to these are bonus songwriter demos and Elvis outtakes to complete the audio story upon which the foundations of the global popular music culture and industry was built. This is Elvis and the story of the impact of The King Of Rock ‘n’ Roll in Great Britain.
This new hard back book features full colour dust sleeve and is printed on high gloss paper, back-lined with linen and automatically sewn for added strength. Issued in a limited edition it is sure to be a collector’s item.
