A bunch of magazines ended up on the desk this week. Some are really fresh, some others a couple of weeks old (sorry for the delay, guys!).
The Belgian/ Dutch fanclub ElvisMatters revamped their magazine and renamed it to simply “Elvis”. Not only the size got twice as big, but also the content (68 pages) got a boost. This issue in perfect printing quality brings besides the usual fanclub magazine content an interview with the 3rd guitarist during the early Vegas years. Furthermore the magazine is looking back on John Wilkinson’s trip to Graceland. Highlight is a number of pictures of Elvis with Mary Ann Mobley that do not leave much to your imagination. Gold members of the club get a free CD with every issue.
The Man And His Music
The 92nd issue of TMAHM has an article on Nick Adams, an (1980) interview with Mae Axton and a very interesting look into the 1960’s originals (of songs Elvis covered that is). There’s candy for the eye in the form of sheet music from around the world.
Another one of the glossy magazines, Flaming Star, has a CD included too. A 6 track CD with Make Me Know It, Soldier Boy, Stuck On You, Fame And Fortune, A Mess Of Blues and It Feels So Right. Good music while reading the interview with Bobby Wood, the background of Fever or one of the other articles… or just staring at the beautiful artwork.
The latest issue of the OEPFC brings part 2 of the 70’s masters series, a closer look on the meeting with the Fab 4, and an overview of DVDs, among others.
Number 198 of the German fanclub’s magazine (EPG) brings an interview with James Burton, an overview of the Wild In The Country sessions and a close look on Change Of Habit (with tons of great pictures!), Of course all regulars like reviews are present too.
Golden Boy Elvis
Another beautiful German magazine, Golden Boy Elvis got its 1st issue of the 5th year. Extremely in depth reviews, or should we say articles about – Fool, Jailhouse Rock and Off Duty form the main part of this issue.
