Mike Evans is a regular contributor to UK's top music weekly newspaper, Melody Maker. He is the author of the much-acclaimed The Art of the Beatles, and since the early nineties has worked in publishing, commissioning and editing over sixty titles in rock'n'roll, jazz and popular culture, including two previous volumes on Elvis. Mike lives in London.From Booklist :
How tempus does fugit! A mere 25 years ago, on August 16, 1977, what many consider the greatest American disaster between December 7, 1941, and September 11, 2001, transpired: the king--Elvis, that would be--died. A witticism of the time held that it was a good career move on his part. A naughty thing to say, but it proved prophetic of how his popularity continued and even increased after his death. Certainly the publication of Elvis books has not stopped, and publishers still feel they can move a phone-directory-size photo-album like this book at 50 bucks per unit. Given the one-per-page presentation of nearly all the pictures, nary a pictureless page between the introduction and the appendixes, and DK's glossy way with colorplates, the tome doesn't seem overpriced at all. It showcases Elvis looking his best, however--and lordy, if ever a man could, he did--so sleaze-mongers should be steered clear of the book while his legions of faithful fans are ushered into its presence.
