    Elvis: Vegas '69 - new book release

    July 31, 1969 marks a historic milestone in Elvis's career. Bolstered by the runaway success of the '68 Comeback show and energized by productive recording sessions at American Sound Studios, which would spawn such timeless hits as "Suspicious Minds", "In The Ghetto" and "Don't Cry Daddy," Elvis launched his return to live performance at Las Vegas's International Hotel in the summer of 1969.
    Here is a chance for all fans to join us for a front row seat with...ELVIS: VEGAS '69.
    Elvis: Vegas '69 is a new 200-page hardback book that commemorates the 40th anniversary of Elvis’s historic return to live performance. Written by Ken Sharp, author of the critically acclaimed FTD book, Writing For The King, the book tells the remarkable story of Elvis's return to the concert stage told through first-hand accounts by those lucky enough to be on hand to witness Elvis's miraculous artistic and creative rebirth.
    - Culling 100 new interviews, the 60,000 word text offers a gripping account of this seminal event told by the people who were there including Priscilla Presley, Elvis's TCB bandmates, the Sweet Inspirations, the Imperials, the Memphis Mafia, celebrities in attendance, International hotel personnel including owner Kirk Kerkorian, hotel President Alex Shoofey, publicity and showroom staff, security, international media and much more.
    - Learn the backstory behind what led to Elvis's triumphant return

    to live performance. You'll go behind closed doors with Elvis and the band in pre-show rehearsals and revel in the excitement and anticipation of opening night. We'll also exhaustively chronicle the opening show on July 31, 1969 through the eyes of the people that were there, press conference, after show celebration and more.
    - Packed with over 150 stunning full color and B&W images, many culled from the Graceland archives, vintage Vegas/Elvis concert memorabilia, a '69 show index and much more, the book will transport the reader back to the Strip for one of the most electrifying moments in Elvis's monumental career.
    - Slated for publication in August, the book will retail for US$50. Ordering details will be announced soon.

    One more interesting book. I wish I was rich to buy each and every Elvis' book I see! In this one "Elvis Vegas '69" , I think it would be extremely interesting to read stories about Elvis from people who worked with him, personnel, security, international media, etc. Thank you Franny fro infroming us.

    You're welcome. It would be wonderful to have every Elvis book, but then again some are not worth having...

    Ken (Sharp) tells me that the book will be out Early August
    At this time.. its unlikely to be sold in Book Stores, or Amazon.

    So only available from Elvis clubs, Elvis Shops, Elvis Internet Websites
    and possibly EPE....

    He Re-interviewed IAN FRASER THOMPSON about his 3 adventures for the Vegas 69 opening Day~Night. - to get new reflections....

    Ordering Info will be available shortly....

    SincerELy.... REX.
