Typical reshashing of non research, at least he gets some positive press though

I cannot believe that this thread or this "Special Edition", highlighting Elvis' greatest work and a "positive" article, for once, at least in recent times, is getting so little attention, and/or recognition around here.

The mag is spectacular and the articles and reviews refreshing for once, damn ...

And the Top 20 "Essential Elvis" song selection (and 2 bonus tracks), is pretty spot on !

"Burning Love" and "Promised Land", the last of the elite Elvis rockers ... Absolutely a bummer !

I'm wondering if this is sold in Canada? Either way, it's nice to see our guy get his much-deserved props!

It's hard to argue too much with the song choices and the little write-ups on the songs are pretty good, too.

Yeah they're fun to read. I really liked what they had to say about Hound Dog: "it was Elvis' gyrations during live performances of the song that caused the destruction of American civilization as we then knew it". :lol:

Your Cousin should be able to find at least 1 copy over here in the USA,there are newsstands around every corner over here,if you blink just once you can still see one,believe me.In my small town there are at least 10+ newsstands and thats just off the top of my head that i can think of,i know there are even more in my town.So tell your cousin to go out and get one for you,they only cost $4.95 :wink:

"Newsstands around every corner"? Here? In the States? There's one in the mall down in Costa Mesa, but in recent years, they've stopped carrying papers. Only magazines, generally. I used to get the British scandal sheets there. ;)

Maybe in a small town.

The website it is!
