Product Description

Elvis Presley hardcover book DVD & CD set. 

The book:

Fully illustrated hardback book examining Elvis' time in Germany when he was drafted into the army, featuring rare photos from the personal collections of local people of the area where he was stationed. The book traces the story of Presley's two years in the army including the trauma of his mother's death just three weeks before he left for Germany, the media circus which surrounded him on his arrival, the girls and drugs along the way and his triumphant return to America. 

The DVD: Death Of A Legend – The Investigation Continues

On August 17 1977 Elvis Presley, loved and adored by millions of fans and devotees worldwide, died alone and virtually penniless. In this intimate and respectful documentary we hear comments from those who were closest to Elvis, the people charged with caring for him and who were at Graceland on that fateful day. They talk of Elvis' final moments and how a sequence of events led to a sad and lonely end for one of the world's greatest entertainers. Reunited for the first time his longest serving friends tell their personal, revealing and often amazing stories. These are the men who were trusted by Elvis to share his innermost thoughts and secrets known collectively as the Memphis Mafia. With the help of reconstructions and eye-witness accounts this DVD examines the drugs, the girls, the financial meltdown and the pivotal role of Colonel Tom Parker leading up to the death of a legend. *

What an awful cover! They say "you can't judge a book by its cover" but in this case, I sure am right!

The same crap would've happened to Beatles if they had been Americans.. I wish EPE and the record company could agree on making a real good Elvis tribute like Beatles' Anhology that was on tv a few years ago, with all the remastered new stuff that's been released these past few years. They're showing Elvis' Great Performances now on Norwegian tv, and the quality is just terrible - especially the cut in Suspicious Minds. Why is it so hard to do a proffesional rockumentary showing everyone WHY Elvis still is, and will always be, the king?? I tell u why, in America it's all about $$$, EPE owns the pictures, Sony the music and the movie companies the movies. Every time someone tries to do something involving Elvis the copyright-owners start to drewl and demand an insain amount of money instead of trying to cooperate and create a good product together.

What the heck does poor Elvis product have to do with being American or good Beatles product have to do with them being British? Its the company behind them. Believe me there is good product out there on American singers. Really, the post I read on this site get sillier by the day. Take your anti-US rant somewhere else.

I 100 % agree with Steve V. I get sick of people like TBG always blaming America for everything. America is a great country and has nothing to do with this release. Besides, if you'd READ carefully up above, this is a UK release. If it weren't for America, there wouldn't an Elvis. If it weren't for Elvis, there wouldn't be the Beatles. Knock off blaming America for everything.

Hey TBG. If not for the USA you'd probably be speaking a different language, if at all. Elvis label was terrible & still is. Not all companies in my country treat their artists like The King is treated. Part of this is the label & part is the typical Elvis fan buying substandard product over & over again. The label knows the fans mentality & they know they can get over on the fans & thus make a profit.

Don't we all need a reality check. There are all kinds of cheap Beatles DVD's out there also put out by a variety of companies. What difference does it make. Simply ignore them.

I just saw a beautiful Sinatra box at FYE, live unreleased concerts on CDs plus a DVD. Last time I checked he was an American artist. Blows away any product put out on Elvis, or even The Beatles for that matter.

'If not for the USA you'd probably be speaking a different language, if at all' is the most facile, ridiculous and pathetic response ever to a comment made on this site. It demonstrates a lack of understanding of how to contruct an argument, a lack of historical knowledge and misplaced arrogance and imperialism which has resulted, arising from a similarly veined US foreign policy, in contempt and ridicule for the United Stated worldwide.

Davrid, agreed. However, for others to blame rubbish releases on Elvis being American is nearly as crass (ok, not really!) as theldscudder's post. Not only does EPE and Sony have no control over European releases such as this, Sony is not even an American company, it's Japanese, headed by a Brit! There are untold dire Beatles releases and the floodgates will open in a few years for their current copyrighted material as it has for Elvis' 50's releases. However, I do agree that the quality of most, if not all, 'offiical' releases, be it EPE, Sony or movie companies, leavesmuch to be desired when it comes to Elvis. But this in some ways is self-perpetuating - if Elvis doesn't sell in the same quantities as other artists, then where will anyone invest marketing dollars? Yes, in other dollars where the marketing ROI is higher. As for EPE, you could never accuse them of 'losing the plot' as they've never ever had a clue...

Davrid & Sally. Lighten up. I said that tongue in cheek. As someone previously commented Elvis is entertainment not cancer research. I was serious in my last part of the comment.

Theoldscudder - that was a joke??? Laughing so much NOT. Just not the remotest bit funny, especially so near to the 11/11. I doubt it was said in a light hearted way at all, and you're feebily trying to post-justify yourself.
