Written in 1980. It is 25 years since Elvis Presley signed what was to be the most important show business contract of all time. The agreement I am referring to is the acquisition by RCA Records USA of Elvis Presley's previously recorded material issued in 1954 and 1955 by Sun Records and, the opportunity for that company to manufacture and distribute all future Elvis Presley recordings. 25 years in which the music business has been shaped and re-styled many times, yet even today, the man who started it all is still held as an architect for much of today's music. 25 years has seen Elvis Presley at the top of the music charts throughout the world both during a very active life and even after his death on 16th August, 1977. In 25 years' time I feel that Elvis Presley's importance to the music business will be just as strong as it is today, and as it was 25 years ago (and boy has that not turned out to be true? If anything it is an understatement).
Over the years and especially in the last 3 years, a lot has been written about this unique singer. Much of the material produced after death tended to attempt the destruction of an image. But this soon died down, and by now the would-be destructors have paled into insignificance.
As you read this book, you will see that as in every Elvis Special the articles are written by Elvis Presley's most loyal supporters. It is a pot-pourri of facets of the wonderful world of Elvis Presley. Articles which will bot amuse and sadden you have been put together with a fine selection of photographs, this year taken from every aspect of Elvis's career. Our colour selection is possibly our best to date.
We hope you enjoy this work, which is a tribute to Elvis by the many fans who love him.
