'Coffee Table' Release Is A Stand Out!"
are some releases in the Elvis world that stand out from the
Elvis Treasures is one of them. Now available, this unusual
release is a composite biography, audio CD and amazing set
of removable, replica Elvis artifacts from the Graceland archives.
It is a great combination, with plenty to offer and intrique
any Elvis fan.
Gordon provides the biographical text and it is strong, colourful
Colonel's faith was in the selling power of his star, and if there
were Hawaiian waves and grass-skirted girls, if there was a lightheartedness
and a confident air, if there were close-ups of Elvis' dreamy face
and a catchy title, the Colonel's marketing machine could churn
and both he and his charge would be successful. The Colonel explained
this philosophy to Elvis repeatedly - he was proud of his attention
to the bottom line.'
removable artifacts are compelling and make fascinating viewing
as they bring you much closer to the spirit and life of The King.
