The Colonel: The Extraordinary Story of Colonel...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In The Colonel, Alanna Nash, the author of Golden Girl: The Story of Jessica Savitch, explores in depth the amazing story of Colonel Tom Parker, the man behind the legend and the myth of Elvis Presley. The result is like the most riveting of real-life detective stories - one that will completely change your view of Presley's life, success, and death. While scores of books have been written about Elvis Presley, this is the first meticulously researched biography of Tom Parker written by someone who knew him personally. And for anyone truly interested in the performer many consider the greatest and most influential of the 20th century, it is impossible to understand how Elvis came to be such a phenomenon without examining the life and mind of Parker, the man who virtually controlled Elvis' every move. Alanna Nash has been covering the story of Elvis Presley and Colonel Tom Parker since the day of Presley's funeral in Memphis, Tennessee. She was the first journalist allowed to view Presley's body, a compelling and surprising sight. But the profile of Parker attending the funeral in a Hawaiian shirt and a baseball cap was even stranger and led her to investigate the man behind the myth. It has been known for 20 years that Thomas Andrew Parker was in fact born in Holland as Andreas Cornelis van Kuijk. But Nash has dug much deeper and, in a masterpiece of reporting, unearthed never-before-seen documents, including Parker's army records and psychiatric evaluations and the original police report of an unsolved murder case in Holland that lies at the heart of the Parker mystery. In the process of weighing the evidence, she answers the biggest riddle in the history of the music industry, as it becomes clear that every move Parker made in the handling of Elvis Presley - from why he never allowed Elvis to perform in Europe, to why he didn't halt Elvis' drug use, to why he put him in so many mediocre movies and even the Colonel's directio 1.

Just when Larue Donavan, top-notch psychic medium and bookstore owner, thought she'd gotten a vacation from ghostly visitors, her ghoul friends are back.

A reality show is in town and wants Larue to join their team. She accepts the job, but gets more than she bargained for when, on the first day, she's thrown into a battle with dark forces. Larue has to deal with the demons lurking between this world and the next and even Elvis can't help her with this fight. This specter may not be out for the client after all. Instead, this demon is all over Larue like a bad rash. The demon isn't the only one longing for someone, though.

Suspicious Mimes: A Blue Suede Memphis Mystery,...

The Elvis impersonators were dead ringers for the King. Very dead. Harley Jean Davidson's job as a Memphis tour guide is about to get even stranger than usual. "Hey," she called, "last stop for all Elvi. This is it, sir. Sir?" He didn't respond, just remained in his seat on the bus, staring out the window. Maybe he'd gotten cold feet about the Elvis contest. With a sigh, Harley walked to the back. "Hey, buddy," she said when she reached his seat, "we're here. Time to go on stage and sing your heart out. Knock 'em dead." When he still didn't respond, Harley put a hand on his shoulder to give him a slight shake. He slumped forward, his head hit the back of the seat in front of him, and she jumped into the aisle. The hilt of a knife protruded from his back. She froze. This couldn't be happening. Not to him, not to her, again. She leaned closer, and the rusty smell of blood made her stomach lurch. Backing slowly away, she fumbled at her waist for the cell phone that she now kept tethered to her with a chain, and hit speed dial. The police dispatcher answered quickly. "Nine-one-one?" Harley said in a voice that sounded a lot calmer than she felt. "We have another dead Elvis." Virginia Brown is the author of more than 50 novels, including the best-selling Dixie Divas Mysteries and now, the Blue Suede Memphis Mysteries, starring Harley Jean Davidson. Look for new books in both series, coming in 2012 and 2013. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Karen Commins, Drew Commins.

The Suburban Book of the Dead: Armageddon Trilo...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The final novel in the Armageddon Quartet and arguably the best of the three. Fast, frantic, and furiously paced - and introducing the now legendary Lazlo Woodbine, 1950s genre private eye. The host of stars include Harpo/Chico the two-headed lovechild, Barry the time-travelling Brussels Sprout, Elvis Presley in his greatest role ever, and Rex Mundi, who still bears an uncanny resemblance to a young Harrison Ford. The action takes place in Presley City, the world’s single surviving metropolis, where Rex finds himself trapped only days away from nuclear destruction. The world is not as it should be. The Bible prominently features Elvis. Lazlo Woodbine is convinced that he is the hero of the book and Barry knows for certain that he is! Rex keeps getting mistaken for the Antichrist, and this is seriously spoiling his chances of getting his end away with the gorgeous Laura Lynch (played apparently by Lady GaGa). If you had any questions to ask after listening to the first two books in this series, all will be answered in this one. Or, if not exactly answered, then not answered. The Suburban Book of the Dead is a study in controlled chaos and a masterpiece in the genre of Rankin’s own creation, Far-Fetched Fiction, and it is strongly recommended that you listen to the other two books first to have the remotest chance of understanding what is going on. Robert Rankin describes himself as a teller of tall tales. The Morning Star describes him as 'The Master of Silliness', and his publisher describes him as ‘The Master of Far Fetched Fiction’. He is the author of more than 30 novels, of which he has sold millions of copies, and he makes people laugh around the world. Robert loves going on tour, signing books for fans, and his appearances at signings and conventions are legendary, often including a stand-up routine, a song (accompanied by his 'air-ukulele'), and an always-entertaining question-and-answer session. 1.

One of the most beloved cult albums of the 1990s, In the Aeroplane Over the Sea is one of those records that sells almost purely through word-of-mouth. In this book, Kim Cooper provides a lovingly researched oral history of Neutral Milk Hotel and the Elephant 6 Collective - from their childhood roots in Ruston, Louisiana through to the moment when Jeff Mangum, NMH's mercurial leader, decided to retreat back into anonymity. Kim Cooper is the editrix of Scram - a journal of unpopular culture. She is also the co-editor of the acclaimed books Lost in the Grooves and Bubblegum Music is the Naked Truth. She lives in Los Angeles.33 1/3 is a new series of short books about critically acclaimed and much-loved albums of the last 40 years. Focusing on one album rather than an artist's entire output, the books dispense with the standard biographical background that fans know already, and cut to the heart of the music on each album. The authors provide fresh, original perspectives - often through their access to and relationships with the key figures involved in the recording of these albums. By turns obsessive, passionate, creative, and informed, the books in this series demonstrate many different ways of writing about music. (A task which can be, as Elvis Costello famously observed, as tricky as dancing about architecture.) What binds this series together, and what brings it to life, is that all of the authors - musicians, scholars, and writers - are deeply in love with the album they have chosen. 1. Language: English.

David Bowie's Low (33 1/3 Series) , Hörbuch, Di...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Low is a kaleidoscope in which Bowie's obsessions and traits explode into fragments and reform in a new pattern. Sonically, it is hugely adventurous: combining a driving R&B rhythm section with the experimental soundscapes of Brian Eno, it evolves a whole new musical language. Thematically, it's the sound of a man struggling to get well. Bowie has often talked about his fear of insanity. Despite - or because of - this, he drugged himself into a state that looked very much like schizophrenia, and then recorded an album that structurally reflected the illness. Hugo Wilcken is Paris-based, Australian-born writer and translator. His first novel, The Execution, was published to critical acclaim by HarperCollins in 2002. His next, Colony, was published in 2006. 33 1/3 is a new series of short books about critically acclaimed and much-loved albums of the last 40 years.
