One of them is with Khang Ree who according to Guralnick was in Vegas in February. Of course he could have been there in August as well, but the February visit is documented.

The other question is on the pic used for December 1971. December can't be ruled out, but I think it's a little too early for the delivering of the poem for Lisa's birthday. As Graceland is not visibly decorated for christmas, except for a lttle christmas tree on the table, my guess would be around his 37th birthday.


I would agree with both of these suggestions.

Thanks egilj, I´m glad you like my website.

I have chosen the August 1973 photo due to the fact that Elvis wears the same cross around his neck as he did in other photos from August 1973 in Las Vegas. He also wore the cross on July 1, 1973 in Nashville.

As for the December 1971 photo, we´ve had a discussion on here some time ago and I believe we agreed upon December 1971 for that photo.

I am glad to announce that I have just added a new section called "Vintage Magazines" to my website.

Our honoured member, The fool, has agreed to let me put his scanned magazine articles up on my website and I can assure you that there will be many new additions in the near future.
Most of the articles are from 1950s magazines but also articles from the 60s and 70s will be added if they contain interesting photos or stories.

I will of course continue add my own new pages to my website in a steady stream.

Sincerely
Brian

Cool. Good move for the fool. It should have a URl of its own though, additionally.
and if you don't mind me saying so again, you should get another more easily recognizable descriptive domain name to link to yours.


PS. Is it an oversite or intentional that each row displays the same covers left to right? also, "1978 forward" lists as updated May 22, 2013 but has no link.

Thanks for your comments James.
I am waiting to hear from one.com (where I have my website) to see how it works with another domain to link to my website or maybe I´ll have to move my website to an entirely new domain.

I simply didn´t have enough covers to make a special photo for each year but The fool sent me a lot of covers yesterday so now I´ve made some changes and each year has its own cover, from that specific year and I´ve tried to have as many different countries represented in the covers. Also, on this page it´s possible to enlarge the photo by clicking it and to get to the magazines from a specific year you´ll simply click on the year.

Hope it looks better now :)

Looks great.
Theoretically you shouldn't have to change anything with your provider. Your current site can stay the way it is and whoever you register a new domain with should be able to just redirect it to any link you provide. For example I now have scottymoore.com registered at godaddy.com and if you click on it it redirects you to scottymoore.net which is registered and hosted by someone else. There's not really any limits either, you could have for example brianselviscorner.com and/or elviscorner.com and redirect it/them to brian56.dk. The only cost should be the $8 or more a year to own the new domain.

however, if you do decide to go the route of rehosting to a new domain make sure you retain the old domain for awhile and redirect that to the new one.

Your additions are always enjoyed - and looked forward to! :)
Here's that 1977 review as it originally appeared with the (slightly enhanced) original photos:

I didn´t have that either. I updated the page with the photo, so thanks a lot.

Your site is going to be one hell of a (complete) journey through Elvis' life once it grows. I hope you have the energy to keep going as it's looking super nice so far.

Well done!

Back again after 4 weeks vacation.

Due to our discussion about Nov/Dec 1968 I made two new pages.
One from November and one from December 1968.

I´m not completely comfortable with the dates as we have the December photos as being from Monday December 2, 1968 and the story tells that
It looked as though someone was packing for a trip. As time passed by, it was obvious that Elvis was preparing to go somewhere.


Since it was a Monday Elvis would be busy filming "Trouble with Girls" so a more likely date would be November 30 and Elvis going to Palm Springs for the weekend.
However, I´ve kept the December 2 date and put a November 29 date on the November photos.

I just added a new page, this time from October 1957 and on Sunday I will add the first page from 1976.

So with the one I added yesterday there will be a new page from the 50s, the 60s and the 70s.

Enjoy!
