Elvis Style by Zoey Goto

 

Elvis Style is a celebration of the aesthetic world of Elvis Presley. As one of the most significant pop icons of the 20th century, Elvis’s impact on the music world has been widely discussed and analysed. Surprisingly, however, his influence on design and fashion remains largely overlooked. Elvis Style investigates why Elvis was, and continues to be, an icon of style, focusing on his wonderfully expressive hairstyles, clothes, cars, and interiors. Elvis Style offers the reader an intriguing and insightful journey though the crazy, cool and at times kitsch world of a true megastar. Contemporary design experts have been interviewed to offer fresh insights into Elvis’s style choices. These includeSex and the City stylist Patricia Fields, costume designer Deborah Nadoolman Landis (Michael Jackson’s Thriller) Oscar-winning costume designer Mark Bridges (The Artist), the British celebrity hairdresser Trevor Sorbie, Andy Lecompte (Madonna’s hairstylist), Savile Row tailor Edward Sexton, Andy Spade (Jack Spade and Kate Spade brands) academics from the University of Mississippi, the Victoria & Albert Museum, George Barris (creator of the Batmobile and Elvis’s personal car-customiser) and Hal Lansky of Lansky Brothers (Elvis’s favourite tailoring house) who has also provided the foreword for Elvis StyleElvis Style includes around 150 photos, many of which are full colour and show rarely seen before Elvis-worn garments, interiors and cars from Elvis’s extensive private collection.

Leaves of Elvis' Garden by Larry Geller

 

The Most Revealing Elvis Book You'll Ever Read
 

Literally hundreds of books and millions of words have been written about the phenomenon that was Elvis Presley. None even approaches what is revealed in this one - because this is the one story Elvis made Larry Geller promise to tell. It was Larry who sat in meditation with Elvis for hours at a time or for brief moments before a show. It was Larry whom Elvis could talk with about his deepest beliefs. And so, Larry became one of Elvis' closest confidants. He knew a side of Elvis that few others knew, and fewer understood.

 
Many books tell what Elvis did. This one tells what Elvis believed. When you plumb the depths of Elvis' soul as it is revealed here, you will understand the real Elvis. You will know him, and very likely, love him even more.
 
You will read passages from his favorite books, with quotes and pictures of the philosophers and spiritual thinkers he admired: Paramahansa Yogananda, Kahlil Gibran and many others. You will view photographs of never-before-seen actual pages from some of those books, including The Prophet, with notes and comments in his own handwriting. Maybe best of all, you will listen in on intimate conversations that Elvis and Larry shared on a myriad of subjects over the years, including his feelings about the women in his life, the future of his career and life after death.

Music Lessons by Norbet Putnam

 

IT WAS THE SUMMER OF 1957, and 15-year-old Norbert Putnam was hunkered down with his father behind their garage in Florence, Alabama. Norbert had started playing bass in a local band and his father was dead set against it so he had pulled his young son aside to reveal a dark secret from his past - he had once played “that damned old bass” in the Beale Street bars of Memphis. He recalled the shootings, gambling, wild women, reefer heads, dirty hotel rooms, lack of pay . . . all recited with tremendous gusto, in an effort to frighten young Norbert. He wanted to convince him to pursue the path to college and a “normal, happy life.” The young man tried to remain still in an effort to withhold his excitement as visions of Memphis and music danced in his head. In spite of his father's intentions, at that moment an opposite decision was made. Norbert Putnam vowed, then and there, to devoted his life to the pursuit of music.

 

Fast forward almost 50 years, and Norbert Putnam, after a sterling career, is still immersed in the  business of music. He resides, once again, in Florence, Alabama with his lovely wife of 27 years, Sheryl, and their beautiful and devoted poodles, Sophie and Gracie.

With the release this year of his first memoir, “Music Lessons” he looks back on a career unrivaled in its diversity. As a studio musician, he was one of the original Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section players, helping creating the famous “Muscle Shoals sound” and putting this small Alabama town on the map with the 1962 Arthur Alexander hit, “You Better Move On.” Backing up Tommy Roe, The Righteous Brothers and four other American acts, they opened for The Beatles when the lads played their first American concert on February 11, 1964 in Washington, DC. After moving to Nashville in 1965 Norbert played bass on over 9,000 tracks with the likes of Elvis Presley, Ray Charles, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, Roy Orbison, George Harrison, Henry Mancini, Al Hirt, Linda Ronstadt, JJ Cale, Tony Joe White, The Monkees, and many others.

 

Told with Norbert Putnam’s affable storytelling style, “Music Lessons” is at once a warm and laugh-out-loud funny romp through music history, packed with stories about some of the greatest musicians in the business.

Elvis in Paris by Jean Marie Pouzenc

 

A special edition softback limited edition jubilee edition of the book 'Elvis In Paris' that highlights Elvis' visit to Paris in 1959. The release by the French Elvis My Happiness fan club in collaboration with LMLR is a 60-year anniversary edition of the book Elvis à Paris. This new softback edition is a luxury edition with more than 400 photos and memorabilia, including newly discovered documents and testimonials. The English text tells about the visits of Elvis Presley. 

 

Elvis visit to Paris was an extraordinary event; he was drafted with the US forces in Germany, but the capital city of France is the only place, outside the United States, that he went to on his own. And more surprisingly yet, he did so three times!

In June and July 1959 then in January 1960. He will later often confide in his friends that these visits to Paris will always remain one of his best memories.

With 160 pages… you will see The King in Paris… at The Champs-Élysées, at the press conference at The Hotel Prince de Galles, during nights out at the Folies- Bergères, the Moulin Rouge and The Lido.

 

A fantastic book at a fantastic price.
