Guide to the author's opinions, mostly 8 April 2013
By Phil S. - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is one tough cookie, this Robertson - a true Elvis Presley purist: there's only 17 good songs since Sun. All that stuff.

Having said that, this is one classily-mounted tome, and beautifully written - a lesson for all reviewers, whether a staffer, a stringer, or just a swell guy like me.

The author surely has respect for Elvis' talent but really shows no patience with the results of recordings sessions during that generally horrific 1963 to 1967 Presley period. If he *can* make lemonade out of lemons, why not enjoy and pass the pitcher?: sides like Frankie and Johnny, Sand Castles, Folow That Dream, What a Wonderful Life, Tonight's So Right For Love, Wisdom of the Ages, etc.

Likewise, he breezes past Elvis' very convincing acting job in several films.

A book like this may seem superfluous - in this list-laden culture and there are enough errors here to drive the EP Extremist up the wall - but his writing ability (in many places apparently inspired by another fine "Elvis writer", Robert Matthew-John Walker, who did "Elvis Presley, A Study In Music", around 1982, seen on Amazon) - still commands attention.
