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.
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?
