TOP 500 REVIEWERon 9 October 2007
The Elvis Archives details the life of Elvis Presley. Decades since his passing on August 16, 1977, people are still intrigued and enamoured by the King. In fact, Elvis has become part of our cultural experience. In this way, if you asked any person on the street today (young or old) who was Elvis Presley, he or she would more than likely suddenly act out his or her best Elvis impression. I doubt you'd get that kind of immediate reaction to questions about any other influential figure, dead or alive. Simply put, Elvis was one of a kind and his influence in our music and culture will be felt for generations yet to come.

The Elvis Archives contains two important features. The first characteristic of this book is that it tells the complete story of Elvis' life. This aspect will allow future generations to understand who Elvis Presley was, why he captured so many people's hearts, and how he became the King. This book is particularly thorough in this respect and includes a good deal about Elvis before he was a star.

The second feature of this book is that it contains a large number of rare and previously unpublished photographs of Elvis. Though these photographs tend to be replicated black and white prints, the printed quality is extremely good. A few of the photographs even include Elvis' autograph as collected by the writers of this book. Diehard fans of Elvis will find these photographs invaluable.

I brought this book recently , and i love the pictures, i think its a good one to have, there is some reading to do so its not just a photo book, i love the picture of Elvis Laughing with Jimmy Durante, i never knew he met him, they look happy.
there where pictures of him with people i didnt even know he met, its a good one id recommend it anyway.

Great pictures and a lot of information for an Elvis fan, only three stars because the print is tiny which makes it really hard to read for any length of time and might be too small for some to read at all!

I liked the combination of words and pictures in this book. Inevitably, it doesn't go into a lot of detail but as a quick reference book or a relatively quick trip though Elvis's life it has a lot to recommend it.
