Marking the 40th anniversary of one of the most important moments in live television, this colossal book is nothing but true justice. I thought I had seen and read everything about Elvis' greatest moment, but this book proved me wrong.

Aloha From Hawaii is historic in that Elvis was the first artist ever to perform a live concert via satellite. Beamed directly from Hawaii to millions of people around the globe, it captured the 38 year old superstar at his grandest, and projected him onto eagerly awaiting television sets. Elvis Presley performing in concert on the world stage - live.

Though you may argue that it wasn't his best live performance, most likely as a result of stage fright from sudden realisation, Elvis looked every bit the King in this live concert. Imagine the pressure - the event must've been equal to the first moon landing. But as the show progressed, you could see Elvis gradually loosening up and getting over his nervousness.

Produced by Elvis experts, Joseph Pirzada and Joe Tunzi, the book brings together just about every single professional shot ever taken of that show - both previously seen and unseen - in magnificent sharp full page colour and black & white photos. And as if words were even necessary, the book relates the full history behind this monumental 1973 project - complete with reprints of the show's production documents.

I cannot put it any stronger, but this truly is the final word on Aloha From Hawaii. Already out of print, the book is a limited edition and I recommend you get your copy before it goes out of circulation.

Aloha 'oe!

ive been an Elvis fan for 36 yrs and have always considered the satellite broadcast Elvis's crowning glory....
this book is probably my favourite to date.. lots of rare pics and an insight into what went on behind the scenes...
also the quality of the book itself is worth the money asked...
you wont be disappointed

This was a special birthday present for a very keen Elvis fan. A very elaborate book with excellent photography although rather expensive.

Top quality book ..heavy and full of superb images of the king during his moment of history making tv ! Boxcar/Jat produce `QUALITY` goods, the like of which were never seen during Elvis` life (the Colonel was known along with RCA for producing tat !!) it`s a shame Amazon couldn`t have done a deal with the publishers after advertising it,and then letting people down at the last minute by withdrawing from orders they had taken !! a lesson ..DO THE DEAL NEXT TIME BEFORE YOU ADVERTISE !!
