The first volume of Erik Lorentzen’s book series The Elvis Files was released as 5th.
The design is as beautiful as the earlier volumes. I can’t add anything more to what I said previously about this series. Trying to find other superlatives is a waste of time, you simply have to see it yourself.
This volume is by far my favourite until now and I guess it will stay that way, because I am not particularly fond of the jumpsuit period and beside that we already have some outstanding books on that. This volume is a nice addition to Ernst Jorgensen’s The Boy From Tupelo. It covers about the same period and to me this is Elvis at his best… the raw energy jumps from most pictures.
Of course there are quite some known pictures, but thumbing through it, reading the numerous articles from that time is one of the better time killers.
I know this is a pretty short review, but I am really out of words for this quality series by now. If you know the previous volumes, you know what to expect. If you don't and can afford it (I realize it can get pretty costly)... you should meet them ;-).
