|Description:||The Return of the King tells the story of a tumultuous period in the life of Elvis Presley. By 1967, the king of rock'n'roll had his career in obscurity, thanks to a string of mild film roles and mediocre recordings. But within a year he was up, freed himself from the restraints on creativity imposed by his manager, Colonel Tom Parker, and reconnected with the rock audience thanks to a fascinating TV special. There followed a glorious but brief artistic flowering in which he created some of his most enduring recordings, including Suspicious Minds and In The Ghetto. This meticulously researched and elegantly written book, based on a series of new interviews with colleagues, friends, fans and watchers of the King, sheds new light on the events of Elvis' great comeback.|
