While the 1968 TV Special was an amazing comeback, Elvis’ return to the very top of his profession would never have happened without the Memphis 1969 recording sessions along with the live performances that followed. Let’s face it, Elvis’ amazing legacy was only sealed in gold by these two all-important years.
The Elvis Files Vol. 5 contains over 1,500 stunning photos in its 580 pages all from the fabulous return-to-splendour years of 1969 -1970. It includes every public ELVIS event in his life from 1969 to 1970, every Working Moment, with hundreds of newly discovered photos.
There is no doubt that this is a labour of love for Norwegian Erik Lorentzen, author and long time Elvis fan, who has found a ton of images and information never before published. Sometimes a series of Elvis books can disappoint with one magnificent volume being let down by a poor follow-up but so far The Elvis Files have proved the opposite with every volume actually being better than its brilliant predecessor. No other series of Elvis photo-books comes close.
