Already had this for a few weeks and it's yet another STUNNER. I'm glad you found a better audio source for the march 18th 1961 recording. Although still not perfect, it's a lot better than the old cassette copy I had. Always interested to hear any spoken word recordings that are relevant to any period of your books, Davide.

You probably mean March 8, 1961.

Having read the new book cover-to-cover, one can easily say this is the final word on the Memphis 1961 concerts, with many beautiful, previously-unseen shots from both performances and a sizable amount of information about who, what, when, where and why. Some of the shots backstage before the evening show are really, really cool. And we note he may have done "Treat Me Nice" at the first show!

As a bonus we read of Elvis' trip to the Tennessee State Capitol not long after, the visit also that day to see former Prisonaires singer and friend Johnny Bragg at the penitentiary (plus a history of their friendship), his recording sessions at RCA's Studio B that weekend, even some insight regarding his going to Ellis Auditorium in October to attend the National Quartet Convention. And more.

Did you know Elvis rented out the local Vanderbilt University stadium the Saturday night before his Sunday, March 12 recording session to play football? Or that some kids ripped off his hub caps while he was in town for the sessions? Again, all very fascinating to the hardcore fan. That we get a CD with a nice MONO version of the Something For Everybody album, the main result of his recording work, plus two meetings with the press, is icing on the cake.

One regret: that none of the three photos of Elvis with Sun Studios founder and producer Sam Phillips merited a full page reproduction. Taken after the afternoon press conference, these represent the last known images of two talented, creative, crazy-yet-pure products of America, whose union produced some of greatest recordings of the century.

Another: not a single acknowledgment of the FECC forum, where virtually all the events we read about in the book received ample, informed discussion, not to mention revealing uploads of news and magazine articles, LP scans and photo uploads, many for the first time anywhere on the internet. That was kind of a surprise.

Thanks for your comments and thoughts, you make a valid point regarding the FECC forum, and I will ensure that there will be a credit in the next project. The Sam Phillips images were not of sufficient quality to be included as full page reproductions.

Thanks

That sounds good, thanks. Too bad about the photos with Sam, given they may be the last with Elvis.

I also noticed many of the images you've shared on your FECC legacy topics, and elsewhere, have almost completely disappeared.

Is that a permanent or temporary thing?

I would presume it is a permanent situation, why, I have no idea.

Any updates on whether the Hawaii concert will be restored/remastered, or merely ported over from the old 1998 BMG CD?

It would be great for Sebastian to work his magic ala A Boy From Tupelo, an opportunity disappointingly overlooked for the Tupelo shows on FTD's recent Love Me Tender release.
