This sounds like an interesting book. The recording of the concert has always been a favourite of mine. Hopefully the book will include the cuttings that were featured on the lavish bootleg release from the seventies.

I think the dea is fantastic, I'd love to have the book. As to the show, it was among the first Elvis live shows I heard, and it is really among the very best. I always wanted and still do to hear it in a better quality.

If RCA / MGM or Paramount had professionally recorded and filmed this Concert. It will definately become the ULTIMATE Elvis Presley Live Show. In 1961, Elvis was in superb brilliant form, voice wise and looks. It's a great pity and too bad he had a lousy manager with no foresight.

1961 was probably Elvis greatest year vocally and physically. A man at the peak of his powers. Its a pity this and the Memphis 1961 charity show were never recorded professionally. I only hope a better sounding CD comes out on the Hawaii show. To only have it as part of the 25th anniv boxset is criminal. it should be given its proper due. By the way, fantastic cover on this book. JAT books are usually high quality.
