Magazine Sunday

March 04, 2012 | Other

Two magazines arrived last week, the Dutch/Belgian ElvisMatters and the immortal The Man And His Music.


This issue (#36) brings an article on the US presidents and Elvis, the last interview with Vernon among others. Of course the regulars like letters, reviews and news are present too. The Goldmember CD contains a couple of PD songs by Elvis, Sweet Sweet Spirit by the Imperials and Swinging in the Orchard by Jessie Presley and some pieces from interviews with e.g. Scotty Moore and Elvis. The CD closes with a belgian radio spot for Elvis Presley in concert.

The Man And His Music

This issue (#95) has an interview with Ernst Jorgensen, interesting but no real news and a very close look into Elvis What Happened because of its 35th anniversary. This TMAHM has all regulars too.

well ElvisMatters brings out a nice mag but many times they're overpromoting Bouke like he is the reincarnation of Elvis. They should be calling it BoukeMatters..

I hadn't heard of Bouke. Looked on youtube found him singing a Shaky song (Love worth waiting for). I prefer Shaky's version. Is Shaky the most successful ETA ever.

Jerome, you are quite right in your statement that there is a over-promotion of bouke. He is nice, but that is as far as it goes. It doesn't add to their magazine too. For the rest it is the most readable magazine in Dutch, though one has to get used to their Flemish way of putting things. And last butnot least: their spelling control is quite good (the reason why I gave up many a magazine).
