Boxcar '68 Special book

Sat Oct 19, 2013 1:32 am

Looks like we will be spoiled with not one but two books in one slipcase from BOXCAR on the '68 Special.

Plus the Eric L book to.

Great times for fans of the special...

Yes, quality awaits. Don't forget Boxcar's greatest release:

Sounds interesting. Some additional info from elvis.com.au:

Joseph Pirzada has been working on a very special project for his Boxcar label for eight months, known only to industry insiders to now, today we can tell you a little about it. After the deluxe and highly acclaimed, 'Elvis Presley s Graceland 1957-1977' and 'Aloha Via Satellite', Joseph has turn his attention to 'The '68 Comeback Special' and this time we are presented with not one but two HUGE books containing hundreds of unpublished photographs, 900 pages in total and packed in one slipcase. The set comes with a free gift surprise. [The free gift surprise kind of makes it 3 books ...] So the ultimate book on the '68 comeback special ...


Wonder what the price will be, tohugh...

Going by the previous two books from "Boxcar" this is easy where can I place my order - saving for it now.
and looking forward also to hearing more about it as the release gets closer.

Boxcar, along with their previous incarnations, are a class act. Really looking forward to this release.

How many more slight picture variations of Elvis sitting down in his leather jumpsuit can there possibly be??

Hmm. Must have used the puppet-warp thing or something, for the top part of him.

Wish they'd not be quite so creative.

No more please! An obvious way to keep exploiting Elvis to the max and to play into the fan who must have everything with his name on it. The Col keeps on living and his legend thrives.

What is "the puppet-warp thing"?

All someone did is rotate the image so the guitar neck was level. Why they did this is unknown, I prefer original view in all cases.

The most important question is, "How many pictures of Susan Henning will there be ?

I have not actually counted how many books i have but it must be nearly 100....so many rows in my bookshelves devoted to Elvis. of cource i bought another 2 books this month alone!~
but continually buying similar/same Elvis material......that doesn't excite me at all.

Yep,this is the reason some think elvis fans live there life through elvis,it seems some really do,i dont understand that,theres other things to enjoy.


That's true but were on an Elvis forum maybe that's why we talk about him so much here.

There are books released monthly.

There are cd's released monthly.

And yet we very rarely get a new DVD.

Still no Dorsey shows, no Berle shows, no Steve Allen shows.

No Dance Party show.
No Pied Piper movie.
etc. etc. etc.

An expanded 68@40 book with gloss paper would beat all of the new release books imho
