Yes that particular photo is in "Elvis '56" By Alfred, not the most promising start, if the new book does not contain a lot more photos that we haven't seen. Nevertheless I'm looking forward to seeing it in our bookshops. We can browse through it before paying the 99 Dollars..in Euros:-)

It's as with the music... how often can you reshuffle the same photos?

How much mileage can ol Al get out of these photos? These books, calendars, etc have been coming out for the last 25 years. Will prob pass on this. Recycled product.

The classy Wertheimer photos was a masterpiece just like Elvis´music in "56. You simply cant top those historical events in any way, since the beauty is that it all was so relaxed and spontaneously done. A blueprint in rock´n roll perfection from a year that is considered to be "the year 0" among other genious in music. Pure magic and a "must have" for me...

Lex and Steve, I agree that often the same product is repackaged and sold again and again. I've read various arguments about this. Regardless, in this circumstance, I know it is a bit different. I heard Werthheimer speak about this at the 2006 Elvis Insiders conference. He took over 2000 photos of Elvis during the time they spent together. We have seen the same 50 or so photos from these 2000 over the years. This book promises to show many of the never before seen images. I'm very much looking forward to seeing it.

Wertheimer allegedly took over 5,000 photos of Elvis during this period. SURELY there will be some unpublished ones in this book?!
