Elvis - The Man & His Music, #67

For a quarterly magazine "Elvis: The Man & His Music" is extremely up-to-date on every topic.

This month's issue features the regular reviews of all the recent Elvis releases, plus an excellent item focussing on 'Can't Help Falling in Love' by Jan-Erik Kjeseth. The article explores all aspects of this essential Elvis #1, including the different worldwide releases, as well as interviews from the musicians present at the recording session.

Also included is an intriguing review of Elvis performing in Pittsburgh June 1973 with some fascinating comments about Colonel Parker who was there. "Col Parker was sitting in front of the stage.. The rotund Parker wore a dimestore-bought cap, and shirt & slacks that looked like they came from a rack in a bargain basement"! An interview with "Sebastian" of the excellent website 'Master & Session' is also featured.

This is very topical since his involvement with the remastering of the new 'Elvis Is Back!' FTD has unfortunately caused the supreme music-master, Kevan Budd, to recently resign. The letters page is as stimulating as ever and, along with some delightful photos, this magazine remains a "must have" for all serious Elvis fans.

I should add that this issue also happens to include a brilliant 6 page article about Elvis' recordings "On the Creative Edge" from some website called The Elvis Information Network!

If you are interested in investigating the more serious side of Elvis, then this quarterly magazine, 'The Man & His Music' is one of the very best. For subscription details e-mail editor@nowdigthis.co.uk
