Your rose colored glasses view of "anything Ernst" is sadly not letting you discuss "anything Ernst" in a non-bias way.

Look, I support the label, but so far I have bought 4 FTD books.

"That's the way it is"
The Fashion jumpsuit one, can't recall the title.
The Elvis in Los Angeles one.

And the boy from Tupelo.

But that doesn't mean I can't discuss the pro's and con's on the material.

What is your problem? You can't seem to handle any slight critism of "anything Ernst".

Your over protective nature is turning you into a fan-boy.

Face the facts. These books are not perfect.

Can't you for once be serious and admit there are flaws to these books. They are not perfect.

There's alot of good parts to the boy from tupelo, but there are flaws. Yes there is.

I would have put a picture of that acetate in that book without a doubt.
Why you are dead set against it is more or less part of your bias nature, which
thereby makes your opinions invalid by default.

And what is more telling ,most fans in thier right mind would have welcomed that photo,
but you are against it only because I am for it. That = troll.


ekenee,

Matthew is the bully on this block. He is belligerent. He ridicules and insults and puts down anyone who doesn't sing Ernst's praises. He's trying to provoke you so that you'll be banned. He worships Ernst. He's being allowed to make this a very unpleasant place. I've had to put him on Ignore. From now on his part in these discussions doesn't exist for me. Why don't you do the same. Put him in the "foes" column and you won't even see his posts. The place brightens up considerably.

Clearly 20 Dec 2013 is not the original join date of "Richard" from "Arizona". Perhaps like ekenee he would do well to read the thread too, learn a thing or two and perhaps make less baseless remarks about Ernst, the project, and myself. There is plenty of critique both positive and negative that I have produced for official Presley product here and in other threads, a fact that "cannot be debated" - since the evidence sits in the archives of this very forum. This indisputable fact lays waste to this tired "Ernst worshipper" diatribe.

No doubt some more baseless "double-talk" will ensue, after all, Elvis alway did attract the most 'special' of fans.

Hmm. For some inexplicable reason, the quality of the arguments on this forum appears to be inversely correlated with a tendency to make personal comments about other members. I wonder why that is?

Thank you for posting the link.

Now that I've read through the threads on this FTD I still don't understand Ernst Jorgensen's decision. Evidently a very small print run was what he wanted, but he has not explained the reasons why. So there are pages of speculation and assumptions. In any case if A BOY FROM TUPELO were reprinted (even as a paperback which is infinitely cheaper than a clothbound) there is no doubt in my mind that it would sell a lot of copies.

Photo essays about Elvis sell books. That's why there are so many of them.

Ernst never said any such thing. You need to know your information before you begin to draw conclusions.

The party that acquired the acetate tried to have it restored but the process apparently destroyed the disc. Fortunately, a digital copy of the disc had been made before this undertaking.

I browsed here four years ago before the stroke, but I did not join until December 20.

Pronouncements carry no authority without cited sources and identified evidence. Not even when the pronouncer is considered reliable. Anonymous sources and unidentified evidence is usually an indication of a fabrication, a weak case, a speculation, wishful thinking, or that something is wrong. Your posts are always the first ones I read, Dr John, and your folder is a lot of fun and very informative, but such dictatorial demands do not inspire confidence.

To instruct someone not to ask questions ... what does that say about you?

I'll ask any questions I want.

Every question I've asked was asked before by people better known to you for a long time in the thread linked above.

Wait til you hear the next one.

There were plenty of outlets to order/pre-order it from. Perhaps your Swedish source did not pre-order enough of them.


The Swedish fanclub only got about 10 copies, there were no more to get! The fanclub tried to get more copies, but there were no more!

Your 100% right, he should at least re-release the book as you mention in paperback, i can see that book selling very well with Elvis fans and collectors who want the book, but cant get it because you had to buy the box set to get it. I would buy an extra copy for myself, and more for Elvis fan friends of mine for a present.

This also goes the same for a re-release for the book from "The Complete Masters set", i want that book very much.
I want it I want it I want it !!!
