Looks great but 149 euro...mmmmm...too expensive for me anyway
Hmm 99% of all fans i have spoken too say REASON they are NOT BUYING ...is that information is readily 'available' on the internet...and that argument i cannot defend!~ + expensive postage and price makes this a 'die hard' and 'collectors item only'+ already out of date missing "Sprit of Jackson reviews"!~ so sure for proper FACTS alternative/better pictures YES but a 'collectors/Elvis fanatic fans' only release this one!~
So what is your point now "you don't know me" ???
My 'point' Tom was i'm trying to get across that this is NOT a 'mainstream' book it is for very VERY specialized collectors within the collecting FTD group!~
Yes indeed this is a very special book. But that makes it not less expensive for me. I really would like to have it but....
I ordered mine. Just love the books like Files from Lorentzen & co.
I'd have hoped lessons would have been learned regarding the cheap, flimsy cardboard case the last triple set of books came in. Unfortunately not. The fools that designed this and the last one think it's ok to charge £150+ and then package them in what looks like a cereal box. This is very easily damaged - as mine is.
