Books

We are delighted to be able to offer several rare Elvis books that are not available commercially. These items are usually imported for our customers and are limited editions.

Memphis To Nashville ’61

 

FTD Books and Flaming Star, in association with EPE, will release a new book – Memphis To Nashville ’61 – in late June 2014. This will give a comprehensive account of the two Memphis charity shows that Elvis performed at the Ellis Auditorium on a cold day in February 1961.

 

The book includes accounts of that day and the events leading up to it. It features accounts from Elvis’ musicians, friends and fans, magazine- and newspaper articles from the time, and many rare and newly-discovered photographs. The collection of over 100 unpublished photographs, most of them in black and white, have been collected from many different sources; some are from original negatives whilst others are from original prints. Also included in the book is a section on Elvis’ visit to Nashville on March 8th 1961, less than two weeks after the benefit shows of February 25, to receive an honorary colonelship from the Governor of Tennessee, Buford Ellington. Furthermore, the final part of the volume includes information and details relating to the recording sessions held on March 12th and 13th 1961 that provided most of the tracks for the classic LP, Something For Everybody.

 

As an added bonus, the book comes with a CD containing the mono version of Something For Everybody plus recordings of Elvis’ press conference, held at the Hotel Claridge in Memphis on February 25, 1961, and of the presentation of honors at the Tennessee State Capitol just 11 days later.

 

Tracklisting…

Something For Everybody (mono version): There’s Always Me / Give Me The Right / It’s A Sin / Sentimental Me / Starting Today / Gently / I’m Comin’ Home / In Your Arms / Put The Blame On Me / Judy / I Want You With Me / I Slipped, I Stumbled, I Fell. Bonus: Press Conference (March 25th 1961) Elvis Is Made An Honorary Colonel (March 8th 1961).

Elvis: Walk A Mile In My Shoes

It takes a very brave man to go up against the Elvis Files books!

In the Elvis world, we are so used to hype and self-promotion that it's easy to get a bit blasé when hearing about another 'sensational book' that we must own. More often than not, the product fails to deliver and ends on the shelf, never to be dipped into again. The information about this book is simple and to the point. Elvis For Everyone! (a company that has built a good reputation over the years with past photo-books like the highly successful Images series) has released a book titled simply Elvis: Walk A Mile In My Shoes (A4 size, 140 pages) and it will blow their earlier books right out of the water. The book contains many amazing photos from 1954 to 1977, and most of them have never been seen before, not even in books like Elvis Files. Many of these photos were taken directly from the original negatives and dias, thus ensuring top quality, and some of them come from the collection of Elvis' associates and musicians, one of whom has written the foreword for this remarkable book. The majority of these photos are in stunning colour, and in the A4 format you can see all the details with amazing clarity. It's a book that can actually live up to its hype.
