Tryin ' to Get to You - Aspects of Elvis Presley
Item Description Elvis Presley was surrounded by controversy during his lifetime, and he remains controversial because so little is known about what actually motivated him. The many facets of his career and personality are addressed in a collection of essays by thirty-five leading music writers. There are also illlustrations and a lengthy section in which well-known personalities describe their dealings with Elvis. The book looks at Elvis's relationship with his parents, with Priscilla, and with Colonel Parker. Billy Blackwood deals with Elvis's love of gospel music, and Tim Whitnall visits Memphis while Charles White meets Elvis's acquaintances at Sun Studios. Peter Doggett, editor of "Record Collector" analyses Elvis's style and there are also articles on his love of the blues, the Memphis sessions and his chart succeses. Other contributors are Mort Shuman, Keith Strachan, Ramsay Campbell, Howard Cockburn, Tony Barrow and Alan Bleasdale. Essays are also featured on the Elvis industry that has arisen since his death as well as Elvis in literature, art and on postage stamps.
