That's The Way It Is

September 26, 2019 | Book

David English & Pal Granlund who have just released details on their forthcoming FTD book/CD "Elvis Presley - The Making of Viva Las Vegas", are proud to announce a new book, which will be released in 2020 on the 50th Anniversary of the documentary "Elvis - That's The Way It Is". Some brief details are listed below.

THE BOOK: "Elvis Presley - That's The Way It Is" - Hardbound book with deluxe slipcase containing over 400 pages. It is a 12 by 12 format, in the same style as the FTD book "Elvis Presley - A Boy From Tupelo" & "Elvis Presley - The Making of Viva Las Vegas." With access to 2000 original negatives and 35mm slides, these images have been restored and repaired, many of which have never been seen before. The book will also contain items from the MGM and RCA archives including paperwork, documents, memos and recording information.

AUDIO: The package will also contain a gatefold sleeve and 3 CDs with unreleased material, more details to follow.

Maybe, just maybe this very early announcement has something to do with the KJ Consulting trilogy That's The Way It Was.

Good. For me a must have. But what about the 3 books from Lorentzen ? Definitly there are more photos in it then in the ftd book. And hopefully they will release a 50th anniversary edition of ttwii with a lot of film material in 2020 too.

I don't have storage space for these big, over-sized releases. Ditch the book. Just sell me the cds. No? Well then, no sale.

Fantastic release, but I don't think there is any more unpublished material
