Magazines Sunday

December 02, 2018 | Other

Two great magazines arrived last week, each in its own right (to me anyway): one for several hours reading pleasure, the other because it is sheer beautiful.

Flaming Star      

Flaming Star

From Norway is #96 of Flaming Star, to me the beautiful one. Not that there is no content, but my Norwegian is just good enough to understand where it is about. There are articles on Don Robertson, Loving You and the Chuck Berry songs Elvis recorded and some regulars. The main article is… indeed about the Comeback Special, like most other magazines Flaming Star is throwing a 50th anniversary party too. As usual with the most beautiful pictures in superb quality. For the eye there is only one magazine coming close to this one, and that is also from Norway, it hardly can be coincidence.

The Man And His Music

The Man And His Music/EMM/TMAHM

First let me congratulate Trevor and everybody else involved with the 30th anniversary of the magazine. Thank you for so much dedication!

This December 2018 (#122) issue is also focusing on the NBC Special: a great article by Peter Guralnick, Trevor comes up with 50 facts about the show (or connected to it) and Arjan Deelen interviewed the gorgeous Susan Henning. It’s not all special related, of course the regulars are there, Trevor looks back on the first issue of EMM (TMAHM for some), Gordon Minto takes a close look at Elvis’ live material in 54/55 and Luther Moore has a nice article on ‘talking Elvis’ (in songs that is).
