The Elvis Files magazine

(Online: June 2020)

On this page the table of contents of The Elvis Files magazine is listed.
The Elvis Files magazine is a quarterly magazine published by Erik Lorentzen.

The eight Elvis Files volumes 1-8, published from 2010 to 2016, were a very ambitious project by Erik Lorentzen that carefully documented almost every single day of Elvis' life from 1954 to 1977, covering everything from what he wore on stage, to who he met, rare interviews, candid photos and newly discovered images.
His collection of Elvis articles and exclusive photos was so extensive that he had more than could fit into his books. So he released an associated magazine in which the additional articles and photos appear almost exclusively.
The first magazine was issued in September 2012 and in total 36 magazines have been released to date (November 2021).
