MEMORIES - Sweetened thru the ages just like wine by Peter Verbruggen and John Wilkinson


'Elvismatters proudly announces the release of a new book, titled "MEMORIES - Sweetened thru the ages just like wine", subtitled "On the road with Elvis & John Wilkinson". "Memories" holds over a hundred rare illustrations and takes you back to the days when Elvis filled showroom after showroom. The 160 page book brings back to life the many memories of Elvis Presley's friend and rhythm guitarist John Wilkinson. Author of the English book is Peter Verbruggen, who also wrote "Elvis - King of Belgium". For the release of this book, Elvismatters joined forces with the Danish fanclub "Elvis Unlimited". The book is all BUT an encyclopedia. Instead, it's a bundle of memories, as John Wilkinson remembers his years with Elvis. It's illustrated with unique documents, newspaper clippings and reviews.
First presentation of the book is on Saturday, January 10th 2004 during the Belgian Birthday Party in Sint-Niklaas (near Antwerp).'

Roots of Elvis by David Neale


'An investigation of the often-surprising origins of some 450 songs recorded by Elvis Presley. Fascinating for Elvis fans and other music buffs.'

'During Elvis Presley's career, he recorded some 800 songs in studio conditions, meant for release on record. In addition, many informal recordings were made of Elvis singing numbers that were never intended for record release. Such recordings were made at home, whilst visiting friends, during his stay in Germany, or even as one-liners or brief extracts during concert performances. Of all of these songs, David Neale has identified some 450 different titles that were recorded by someone else before Elvis got around to recording them. Roots of Elvis lists each of these songs, identifying the original recording artist and when the original was made (some date back to the 19th century!), as well as providing fascinating background to the numbers. Readers will be surprised to learn of Elvis's link with Ignacy Paderewski, for example, the man who prepared USA President Wilson's Treaty of Versailles. The range of music represented is quite extraordinary and is testimony to Elvis's versatility: rock'n'roll, blues, rhythm and blues, gospel, folk, and even a bit of classical: who would have thought that names such as Bach, Beethoven and Brahms would appear in a book about the music of Elvis Presley!'

Bill Burk's Early Years: The Humes Years released


This book has now been released, with nine new photos. The Humes Years is the first book in Bill Burk's "Early Elvis" trilogy (together with The Tupelo Years and The SUN Years), and until now has been very hard to get.
Bill Burk's Early Elvis trilogy are among the most critically acclaimed books on Elvis ever published. The thorough research and detail included means they provide a previously missing insight into who Elvis was during his formative and school years. Based on Bill Burk's decades of investigative journalism and his interviews with scores of people who knew Elvis and his family, the Early Elvis trilogy is an essential inclusion in any serious library of Elvis books. They provide readers with a picture of the real Elvis Presley, a person often quite different from the portrait presented in mainstream biographies.
