From Cover To Vinyl - The Artistry Of Elvis Bootlegs

From Cover To Vinyl - The Artistry Of Elvis Bootlegs

Released: End of October 2018. This book is limited to 750 copies and there will definitely be no reprint.

 

When Bootleg Elvis appeared in 2012, it sold out almost immediately, and became an instant favorite of collectors all over the world, most calling it the 'Bootleg Bible'. Since then, additional rare bootleg titles have been discovered, not to mention many unexpected variations of some classic albums.

 

So, it seemed to be time for a new and updated look at the bootleg world.

 

Whereas Bootleg Elvis mainly relied on text to tell the story, this new edition chooses to focus on photographs. Using the 2012 classic as a reference point, the producers decided to feature scans of every cover, label, piece of vinyl and insert for you. This will make it easy to identify each and every pressing and variation.

 

They also decided to split the original book into two volumes. In the first, every known bootleg 7” and 10” record will be noted on 300+ pages, with more than 1,600 colour pictures, cross-references to Bootleg Elvis and totaling around 400 titles in all.

 

The second volume will cover all the wonderful 12” releases and is planned for release in early 2019.

Elvis Comeback 68

Comeback 68: The Story of the Elvis NBC TV Special

Released: August 2018

 

The 50th anniversary commemorative book featuring the behind-the-scenes story from Producer/Director Steve Binder. It contains 182-pages of insightful prose, striking Elvis photos and never-before-seen memorabilia from Steve Binder’s personal archives). It delves into the dynamic (and often intimate) stories behind the performances during the iconic, now legendary, evergreen landmark “Comeback” NBC broadcast on December 3rd 1968.

 

The stunning book begins with a heartfelt accolade penned by Priscilla Presley.

 

As a trusted visionary, Binder’s narrative brings to life the biggest television event of 1968 and one that is still enjoyed today by fans all over the world. He captures the behind-the-scenes tug of war between himself and Colonel Parker as they fought for their competing visions. That Steve Binder won is evident as the result was an iconic and life-changing event, enjoyed by millions of American viewers that evening in December 1968 and has been talked about ever since… Elvis’ most defining hour. The showcase was all about Elvis, exposed and raw, where during the set, DJ Fontana beat his drumsticks against a guitar case rather than a drum kit. Elvis seamlessly migrates from acoustic to electric guitar, this was Elvis, unplugged — before the “unplugged” concept ever existed.

 

The book includes various segments and insights from the intimate in-the-round jam sessions to big production numbers with dancers, a full band and an orchestra. The show culminates with the iconic performance of If I Can Dream with Elvis dressed all in white standing in front of a marquee of 310 red lights spelling E-L-V-I-S – something that would become a trademark element of his performances. This same marquee is featured in LED lights on the Super Deluxe, Signed, Limited-Edition, black leather box set.

 

Author Steve Binder recalls, “Meeting Elvis not only changed Elvis’ life… but mine as well. Who would have thought that 50 years later, Elvis would be as popular, if not more so, than when we had the opportunity to work together on the NBC Comeback Special. Memories I will never forget.”
