GREAT CALL on the Stein-Erik Skar book ELVIS PRESLEY IN CONCERT!!! Definitely a great book, especially with the tour by tour synopsis and the press releases from the various newspapers on each tour!! The only downside to the book that I would make a note of is the low number of photos...perhaps more photos from each tour would have made this book even better....but still the DEFINITIVE Elvis concert information book, in my opinion!!
I also have to agree on Chris Brown's ON TOUR WITH ELVIS book!! While obviously a "homemade" effort, this book is chock full of notes of what it was like to follow Elvis on a complete tour...and given the fact that it was one of the great spring/summer '75 tours makes it that much better!! Just reading the book makes you feel like you are right there with Chris step by step from beginning to end! A FANTASTIC BOOK!!!
Although I only have ELVIS SESSIONS III from Joe Tunzi, I have to agree that this is another MUST HAVE book for any Elvis fan!! Personally, while I enjoyed reading Ernst Jorgensen's book A LIFE IN MUSIC, I just have to give the nod to Tunzi's book instead!!
As for the other Tunzi books...while they are certainly enjoyable (and I own several of them), my only complaint on them is the price of some of his books. In a couple of instances, I bought a Tunzi book and while enjoyable, I didn't think it was quite worth the price I paid for it.
I also have to agree that THE MAN AND HIS MUSIC is a great Elvis magazine....but I also have to give props to ESSENTIAL ELVIS, which seems to always come up with some of the best interviews of the various people in Elvis' life!!
