Overview

In Elvis: A Tribute to the King of Rock 'n' Roll, author Frank Hyland traces the rise of Elvis Presley from his poor upbringing in Tupelo, Mississippi, to his burst onto the national scene in 1956, to his television and motion picture triumphs, to his electrifying return to the stage in 1968, to his passing in 1977. From "Heartbreak Hotel" to "Aloha from Hawaii," this detailed"scrapbook" contains never-before-published photographs, artwork and memorabilia drawn from the Elvis Presley Enterprises and Graceland archives. Tucked into dozens of pockets, fans will find reproductions of old record album covers, movie posters, historic tickets, postcards and more. These fascinating replicas include Elvis' birth certificate from 1935, a 1956 Blue Moon Boys poster, a ticket to the 1961 Pearl Harbor concert, a 1964 telegram to the Beatles, a menu from his first performance in Las Vegas in 1969, a 1970 Astrodome concert ticket and a receipt for costumes from the 1973 "Aloha from Hawaii" concert. No Elvis fan should be without this "home archive" of the illustrious life of Elvis Presley.
