  • Elvis Alfred Wertheimer Paperback Book
    Item #: EPAM3399
    In 1956, a twenty-one-year-old singer named Elvis Presley was at the beginning of his remarkable career. Alfred Wertheimer, a young New York photojournalist, was asked by Elvis' new label, RCA Victor, to photograph their new artist. In the course of his one-day assignment for RCA, Wertheimer was struck by the stunningly photogenic performer and felt compelled to continue documenting the everyday moments in Elvis' life during that crucial year.

    Wertheimer's unobtrusive photographs of Elvis in performance, with his fans, in the recording studio, and at home with his family present a unique look at one of the world's most famous cultural figures. These images were the first and last unguarded look at Elvis, and also constitute an important visual document of post-World War II America.

    With hundreds of gorgeously reproduced high-quality prints, Elvis is the result of a special alchemy between an exceptionally talented photographer and a charismatic young man on the brink of superstardom.

  • Elvis Presley - A Moment in Time, 4 Days in '56 FTD Book
    Item #: EPAM3307
    Author and producer Michael Rose has assembled a most stunning glimpse of Elvis' life in 1956. Through literally hundreds of photos (many previously unpublished) we get to join Elvis at his show in Detroit on May 25.

    We stay with the tour for two more days in Columbus and Dayton and finally arrive in Memphis on May 28. Rose has interviewed people who attended the shows, found original newspaper coverage, chosen and organized the many photos, and arranged it all as a fascinating travel log.

    This is the Elvis that country legend Bob Wills aptly described as a 'punk', before controversy and Hollywood toned him down. The perfect companion to the new box set, 'Young Man With The Big Beat' (a few of the photos in the box set, including the front, actually comes from this book).

    In 1956, a twenty-one year old Elvis Presley was at the beginning of his remarkable and unparalleled career and photographer Alfred Wertheimer was asked by Presley new recording label, RCA Victor, to photograph the rising star. With amazing unimpeded access to the young performer, Wertheimer was able to capture the unguarded and everyday moments in Elvis' life during that crucial year, one that took him from Tupelo, Mississippi, to the silver screen, and to the threshold of international stardom and his eventual crowning as "The King of Rock 'n' Roll".
