Hans Otto, you make a good point. I never knew exactly where Mr. Lee is coming from (I haven't read the 'Desert Storm' book) but from what I've seen, he's on a mission to "prove" something. The book titles are a bit wildly out of proportion, don't you think? In the big scheme of things, and even within the Elvis world, these are rather mild adjustments to make in terms of how we have come to believe certain critical assumptions about this or that shows. They are hardly central to understanding the Presley legend (even if we buy his revisions) nor do they dislodge the sad truths about his rise and decline. I just got the "Chaos in College Park" and look forward to reading the booklet and of course, hearing the CD. A very long "thread" about the "Chaos" CD was the result on FECC so it seems like the CD has made some kind of controversy. I'm going to read that after hearing the concert.

In that case the book should sell to about 80% of fans who, on the whole, see just as blinkered!

The main problem with Darrin Lee's books is that he in each case always tries to "prove" that Elvis was not addicted to (prescribed) drugs. According to Darrin Lee's earlier books, Elvis was crisp and healthy as a girl scout both during he's infamous closing concert ramblings in Las Vegas in September 1974, and even during the In Concert shows in June 1977. Unfortunately, the value of these books are limited as long as Darrin continues to deny that Elvis did have a serious drug problem that both influenced he's appearances in various ways, and finally also contributed to he's premature death.

This makes a nice combination with the recently released "Choas in College Park". Should contain many unreleased pictures also.. Either way you look at this upcoming book, Darrin Lee is right about the fact September 27th show wasn't horrible or the worst show ever. We've been fooled for years. The next night was vocally extremely weak though! But I don't think the audience even noticed. Both shows have great audiences. An interesting book, but only judge before you heard the show yourself please! Some still may find it very poor, others, including me, consider this show not that bad at all. Cheers, RJ

Another pile of lack of balance and substance? What does the author gets out of it? Except Dollars? I wonder....

<sarcasm>If it is unbiased as his "Elvis In Concert" was, I'm really looking forward to it.</sarcasm>
