Alan Hanson's thorough research results in an excellent, detailed review of the 28 concerts that Elvis performed during three tours in 1957. Written with style, full of information, both of the shows themselves and of the events surrounding them. These were Elvis's final concerts of the 1950s. Accompanied by 18 black-and-white photos, few of which have been previously published in book form. Not a book to be missed!

Photo reportage of two concerts held on 19 July 1975 in Long Island NY. Photos accompanied by sensitive report of both concerts and followed by a brief bio. Pity about one photo that is printed in reverse (thereby showing Elvis playing guitar left-handed, as if that wasn't a give-away to the proof-reader...) and the several double-page spreads that manage to position Elvis right in the fold! Intro by David Stanley.

Subtitled "The Undiscovered King 1954 - 1958." A quite excellent review of Elvis's early touring career through Texas, from the humblest of beginnings, playing school gyms and car dealerships to a hundred or less people, to audience of thousands in huge venues. Excellently illustrated with many previously unpublished photos from the very concerts, as well as contemporary photos of the venues and fellow performers.

Excellent collection of photos from four of Elvis's 1975 concerts: 25 April at the Veterans Memorial Coliseum, Jacksonville, Florida; 30 April at The Omni, Atlanta, Georgia; 1 May, again at The Omni; 2 May, once again at The Omni. Beautifully printed and well bound, this book is a must for 70s concert fans.

The author followed Elvis to many concerts during the 1970s, becoming recognised and accepted by the Elvis entourage. She describes the many concerts she attended, the costumes worn, the on-stage antics. Interestingly illustrated with personal concert photos. One for the fans!
