ELVIS-SESSIONS 3 by Joe Tunzi is a MUST for scholars of the musical legacy of Elvis Presley.
This book stands as a monument of facts,dates and information pertaining to every known recording,professional or semi-pofessional, of Elvis Presley.
Dates,locations,studio personnel,master takes vs. alternate versions,live recordings,soundboard tapes and home recordings are all documented in chronological order-session by session,song by song.
In this volume,the third revision of this perennial masterwork,even studio overdub sessions are meticulously noted.
In addition,all the outtake footage from the 70's film documentarys 'ELVIS-THATS THE WAY IT IS' and 'ELVIS ON TOUR',is described in copious listings. Master lists for both films, detailing the dates and locales of virtually every scene, prove fascinating and invaluable.
Tunzi is a master at unearthing previously unseen photos. Having published nearly 20 volumes of Elvis photo books, the session info is accompanied by more than a few rare recording studio-related images,among many other candids.
This is not a book for the "casual" Elvis fan--but an essential purchase for those interested in a behind-the-scenes look at what made Elvis's career the legend it is today.
