Bücher/Books on DYNAMITE by Dynamite - Magazin - Nr.20 - Magazin & limited Single (english)
(1986/Heanor Record Centre) English, Clothbound (moody blue) with dustjacket, 21.5 x24.5 x 2 cm, 204 pages, many fabulous color photos. - It is 10 years since Elvis Presley died at his home in Memphis, Tennessee. The date of 16th August 1977 is honoured annually by Elvis fans throughout the World. Elvis´ death, at the height of the Punk revolution sadly attracted a punkish response from the press and media alike. The happiness which had been Elvis Presley to his fans all through his professional life had become a bottomless pit of depression. Nothing can take away that cruel despair, not even this book. This book however looks at ´´life after death´´ — not the hocus pocus world of spiritualism, but the cold world of commercialism mixed with the kindred spirit of Elvis´ global fan following. - Elvis Ten Years After is written by Stourbridge U.K. fan Miss Anne E. Nixon, and is edited by Todd Slaughter, secretary of the Official Elvis Presley Fan Club of Great Britain.
English, 240 pages/Seiten, paperback, 29x21 cm. A day by day calendar of El´s activities in 1956 - professional and private - with many b/w photos / Zeitreise durch Elvis´ Aktivitäten 1956 mit vielen seltenen schwarzweiss Fotos. Foreword It has always puzzled me why at the same time Elvis Presley could be the most wellknown artist in the world, yet the facts relating to his career have either been insufficient, incorrect, missing or misinterpreted. With Brian Petersen´s debut work ´´The Atomic Powered Singer´´ this situation is de?nitely changing in a most surprising way. Brian, born in Denmark but a Swedish resident, has managed to compile a calendar of Elvis Presley´s whereabouts in 1956. Never has so much detail been available to all those music historians who really want to understand the astonishing rise of Elvis Presley. ´´The Atomic Powered Singer´´ is a day by day calendar of Elvis Presley´s 1956 - the year that took him from being ´´the most promising C & W artist´´ to movie star status. Through newspaper ads for his concerts, press clippings and many rare photos this book leaves no doubt about the authenticity of its information. Through ´´summary pages´´ at the end of each month you get an easy overview of all Elvis´ activities - professional and private. 240 pages of solid facts - a must for any true, rock historian. The only burning question that the book doesn´t answer! When do we get a follow up? Ernst Mikael J urgensen Producer R.C.A.

In partnership with Texas Monthly, Katy Vine´s ´´Just Desserts´´ is now available as an audio download, where the length and timeliness of a podcast meets the high-quality production of a full-length audio program. Mr. and Mrs. Jenkins led a perfectly adequate middle class life in Corsicana, Texas. Mr. Jenkins, Sandy, worked as an accountant at Collin Street Bakery, world-famous for their fruitcakes. Kay, Mrs. Jenkins, was the more outgoing of the two, the one that friends and neighbors actually noticed and didn´t mind talking to. Feelings of adequacy and invisibility weighed on Sandy, and were only compounded by his admiration of boss bakery owner, Bob McNutt, a man who reminded him daily that others were respected and were living more luxurious lives than he. One day, Sandy decided to seize a bit of that respect and finer life he admired so much in McNutt for himself. With just a bit of manipulation of the bakery´s accounts, Sandy wrote the first of many checks in the company´s name to pay for the life of luxury he envisioned was his right. Combining a quintessential tale of living outside one´s means with the addiction of committing a crime time and again without getting caught, Katy Vine delivers the hard-to-imagine story of the Jenkinses and their mysterious rise through Corsicana society. 1.
