Lyrics from Such A Night to The Vicious Circle
This is the eight volume of what pretends to be the ultimate collection of lyrics and the
story behind them. The volumes now all together span some 250 pages, but the end is in sight:
I expect two more volumes will be publised to cover all the remaining songs.
The first volume was published in 1997, and the others were released irregularly
the following years. Volume 8 was published in late 2003.
This volume has an interesting story about the song 'The Climb' (originally called
'The Slime'), which was released on the Follow That Dream release 'Viva Las Vegas'. The song
'The Mississippi River', also called 'The Tupelo Years' is listed as supposedly the one and
only song ever written by Elvis himself.
Question arises why not publishing it all in one book? Well, every page has
four columns of text in a small typesetting, which would lead to a vast 800 pages if
published in one book and in normal typesetting.
