I met Elvis in November of 1972 through my sister, Linda, who was dating him at the time. I was an officer with the Shelby County Sheriff´s Department in Memphis, and Elvis and I quickly became friends. Elvis was a good friend of my Sheriff in the department, Roy Nixon; and in the Spring of 1973, Roy informed me that Elvis wanted me to go on a concert tour with him. A two-week leave was arranged for me; and that was the beginning of my touring years with Elvis: whenever there was a tour, I would get a leave to work security on the tour. In July of 1976, I left the department and went to work for Elvis on a full-time basis, as a personal bodyguard and tour advance man, providing security for Elvis at Graceland, his homes in California and on all the concert tours,including hotel and airport security.

Beautifully designed and complete with the Fan Club stamp of authenticity, this is the essential Elvis portrait for fans the world over. Introduction All Shook Up Elvis made his first appearance in the UK chart in May 1956. His first gold record Heartbreak Hotel started it all. It paved the way for popular music today and started a fan phenomena, unrivalled by any other artist. The Official Elvis Presley Fan Club of Great Britain was established in August 1957 when Elvis was enjoying chart success with his first UK No.1 single All Shook Lip. Originally founded in London´s Mayfair by Jeanne Saword and Dug Surtees the club cost the equivalent of 55p to join, for which members received five bi-monthly magazines, two journals and free glossy black and white photographs. The Official Elvis Presley Fan Club of Great Britain and the Commonwealth was first registered with the British Board of Trade in 1957 and was re-registered by Albert Hand Publications Limited in 1961. Albert Hand had been publisher of the hugely successful Elvis Monthly since 1960 and when Dug and Jeanne went their own way in early 1962, Albert took over as Fan Club Secretary. The new publication was entitled Elvis Express and membership was the equivalent of a mere 27´/2p. The fan club was the first official fan club outside of the USA which enjoyed the blessing of Elvis and the Colonel and in 1967 the club was re-assigned to its new Secretary Todd Slaughter, again with official endorsement. Todd Slaughter excelled in his role as Fan Club Secretary for 28 years. In 1972 the club began organising trips to the United States so that fans could see, and a lucky few meet, their idol. Todd´s outstanding work with the media earned the club recognition world-wide, building its fan-base to one of Elvis´ largest. In November 1994 Todd underwent heart transplant surgery and although making an excellent recovery resigned as club secretary in December 1995. Stepping into the role of Fan Club Secretary was not easy. I didn´t really know who Elvis was until his untimely death in August 1977, when I was only eight. In the years that followed, Elvis films were prime time television viewing, captivating a whole new generation of fans, including myself. This still continues today as people turn away from contemporary music in the nineties and go back to the origins of popular music. Backed with our original members and future generations of fans, the Official Elvis Presley Fan Club continues to live up to its reputation as the most respected fan organisation in the world.

(2010/Jawbone) paperback - english - 15.2 x 2.2 x 21.6 cm, 270 pages. 12 page photo section, - Return Of The King tells the story of a tumultuous period in the life of Elvis Presley. By 1967, The King Of Rock ´n´ Roll was all but washed-up, thanks to a string of bland movie roles and lackluster records. But within a year he had roused himself, loosened the creative shackles imposed by his grasping manager, ´Colonel´ Tom Parker, and reconnected with the rock audience through a riveting TV special. There followed a glorious but all too brief artistic flowering, in which he made some of his most enduring records, including ´Suspicious Minds´ and ´In The Ghetto.´ This meticulously researched and elegantly written book, based on a string of new interviews with colleagues, friends, fans, and observers of The King, sheds new light on the events of Elvis´s great comeback. - GILLIAN G. GAAR is the author of She´s A Rebel: The History Of Women In Rock & Roll, Green Day: Rebels With A Cause, Nirvana: In Utero, and The Rough Guide To Nirvana. Her work has appeared in numerous anthologies, including Trouble Girls: The Rolling Stone Book Of Women In Rock, Goldmine: The Beatles Digest, and The Nirvana Companion. She has also written for Mojo, Rolling Stone, Goldmine (where she wrote the ´All Things Elvis´ column), and the Experience Music Project museum,among others, and served as a project consultant on Nirvana´s With The Lights Out boxed set. She lives in Seattle.
Magazine - 32 pages - english - b/w - numbered edition! last copies INTRODUCTORY NOTES This Rockin´ Records Special Elvis Edition fulfills two needs that a flood of Elvis record collectors have been writing and calling us about. FIRST: Record collectors and dealers who don´t get involved in anything other than Elvis collectibles asked about the possibility of a separate guide, one that would contain all of the Elvis infor-mation that appears in Rockin´ Records Reference Book & Price Guide, but without the information on other artists. Not only does this special edition contain all of the important Elvis data, exactly as prepared and printed in Rockin´ Records, but the increased amount of space allows for larger type to be used, making this guide even easier to use. Naturally, it is also more convenient to carry with you when you go ´record hunting.´ Noteworthy also is the savings to the Elvis collector, with this edi-tion priced considerably lower than the huge Rockin´ Records. SECOND: In the three years since the last Osborne Elvis guide, Presleyana Second Edition, a tremendous amount of new Elvis material has appeared. Surprisingly, a great deal of the newly discovered Elvis record collectibles are older releases. Some are even from the fifties! There has also been a great deal of recently issued product, most in conjunction with the Elvis 50th Anniver-sary Celebration. Everyone has been wanting all of this new information and no one wanted to wait until 1987, when our giant Elvis Collectors Guidebook is due, marking the 10th Anni-versary of the King´s passing. This Special Collectors´ Edition will surely satisfy both of these needs. The Rockin´ Records price guide format is one that was carefully devised to provide for the inclusion of over 100,000 records by thousands of pop and rock artists. It also enables us to include every type of recording in one multi- purpose guidebook: 7-Inch 45rpm singles, both 33rpm and 45rpm; 78rpm singles; 12-Inch singles, both 33rpm and 45rpm; Extended Play EPs; Long Play LPs, 10- Inch and 12-Inch; Compact Discs and more. The format is structured, under the artist heading, alphabetically by LABEL rather than by title. Listings for each label (which are mostly RCA Victor in the Elvis section) appear in numerical order! In many instances, listings that are numerical by catalog number are also chronological in sequence of release, but there are also many times where this isn´t true. Since the year of release is also provided for each listing, the reader knows imme-diately the pattern being followed by the label at the time. The numerical listings generally utilize only that portion of the catalog number that designates that particular issue. Therefore, letter and number prefixes are not used UNLESS it is absolutely necessary to distinguish one release from another (such as an LSP album being reissued with an AFL1 prefix but with the same catalog number). This means that to locate RCA Victor 47-6357, look up only 6357. Finding EPA-994 requires looking for 994. SPS 33-347 will be found as 347. When you can only think of the title of the Elvis record you wish to locate in the guide, and the disc is not available to pick up a number from, refer to the handy TITLES/CATALOG NUM-BERS INDEX. This chapter preceeds the actual record listings section. Look for the title in either of the three catagories, Sin-gles, EPs or LPs, and you´ll instantly know the original catalog number followed by any and all reissues. You then know exactly where to find the information you seek. The TITLES/CATALOG NUMBERS INDEX also represents the first time in print for this very useful compilation of recording information. Without a doubt, this chapter will provide an excel-lent addition to your Elvis library, apart from its usefulness within the confines of this edition. Listing and pricing so many releases in Rockin´ Records has forced us to economize on space, resulting in the listing of individual titles WHENEVER NECESSARY but not in those instances where it´s possible to group a number of equally valuable releases together on one line. Again, ANYTIME we find it necessary to give a separate listing to a record in order to clearly and accurately present the information, we will do it. Because of its many complexities, the Elvis section does, in fact, require a tremendous amount of individual title separation.
