Elvis Presley’s Memphis

March 27, 2010 | Book

There is no question about it, Elvis Presley loved his hometown. He may have been born in Tupelo, taken Hollywood by storm, and later triumphed everywhere from Vegas to Honolulu, but to everyone in every city he said, “I would love to show you Memphis.”

Elvis Presley Enterprises Inc. and Memphis’ award-winning newspaper, The Commercial Appeal, are proud to bring Elvis fans, historians, music lovers, and everyone who loves Memphis an exciting new book, "Elvis Presley’s Memphis." Both entities have opened their significant archives and discovered photographs, documents and news stories that share Memphis through the eyes of the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll.

Preorders for the book will begin on Friday, April 2 and a special enhanced version, which will include a DVD, will be on sale only at Graceland during Elvis Week in Memphis.

Sounds very promising indeed.

This is definitely the sort of thing we need. Will helps to counteract the very unsettling review of the new Alanna Nash book in the Sunday Times today. (They appear to be reviewing the Goldman book in some of the quotes..)

Well said Buffalo! I too read the Sunday Times article. I was shocked that so much news print was dedicated to such a book in such a sensationalist and mean spirited way. Why did the Sunday Times not have any articles reviewing Elvis In Concert which had just played a whole series of sell out concerts throughout Europe? Surely that would be a better description of Elvis' legacy than yet another muck-raking money-grabbing Goldman style expose of a man who died over 30 years ago?
