More About Elvis by Michael Heatley; Deke Leonard
 
 
 
Overview

Elvis Aaron Presley was one of the most popular American singers of the 20th century. A cultural icon, he is widely known simply as Elvis and is often referred to as "the King." Born in Tupelo, Mississippi on January 8, 1935, Presley moved to Memphis, Tennessee, with his family at the age of 13. He began his career there in 1954 with the legendary Sun Records label in Memphis. In late 1955, his recording contract was sold to RCA Victor and by 1956 he was an international sensation. With a sound and style that uniquely combined his diverse musical influences such as pop, country, gospel and R&B, he ushered in a whole new era of American music and popular culture. He starred in 33 successful films, sold over a billion records earning him gold, platinum or multi-platinum awards, received 14 Grammy nominations, the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, which he received at age 36, and has been honored in four Halls of Fame. He was truly a legend. The book is accompanied by a fabulous CD showcasing Elvis' legendary musical talents. Elvis may have left the building but his music will forever live on. SONGS ON THE CD: Hound Dog, All Shook Up, Jailhouse Rock, Heartbreak Hotel, Don't Be Cruel, It's Now Or Never, Are You Lonesome Tonight?, Such A Night, Blue Suede Shoes, King Creole, Long Tall Sally, Rip It Up
