Exactly what it says on the tin. Perhaps the most exciting period of Elvis' career. The book is full of interesting anecdotes which really work to draw you closer to the Elvis 1957 concert experience and the events surrounding those shows. While there is very little footage of Elvis in concert in 1957, and little-to-no audio recordings (apart from some very short radio broadcasts), Hanson is successful in his bid to enlighten even the most ardent Presley admirer, and lift the veil of mystery which obscures the truth of the man in the gold lamé suit.
