Looks great. However, even though self-published through Amazon, I can't find it there. A real shame.

Not a great fan of Elvis books other than those with pure facts and figures, but this one looks to have real promise and is quite tempting !!!

Great book, reading it currently. Full of fascinating stories and interesting to see how the different strings came together culminating in what would be the famos revolution in music history as we know it. Reading the story of the creation of “That’s All Right” I was having goose bumps ... Highly recommended to everyone who is interested un music history and of course in C&W and Elvis in particular!
