Writing For the King - A TRUE CLASSIC,
This review is from: Writing for the King (Audio CD)
This is the ultimate book for any Elvis fanatic who believes that the gift of his music was the most significant factor in his career. Ken Sharp has interviewed 140 songwritters with their unique stories behind all their songs. Not only that, he's got their original demo records which are included in one of the 2 CD's offered with the book. The other CD is unreleased Elvis in concert and it completes the most interesting Elvis product to hit the market in recent years. I would compare it to the two Peter Guralnick classic books 'Last Train to Memphis' and 'Careless Love' which gave true accounts of the life of Elvis Presley. 'Writing for The King' is a quality book and includes written lyrics from the song writers, sheet music of the songs and photographs many of which I have never seen before. I feel that it will become a collectors item in years to come because it is a limited edition of only 500 copies. Buy it now - you will not be dissapointed!!
