Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Return of the King: Elvis Presley's Great Comeback (Genuine Jawbone Books) (Paperback)
I have been buying books on Elvis since 1963. In more recent times, I have enjoyed those books that focus on one aspect of his career or life, and Return of the King is an excellent example of the best of this type of approach. Although, from the title and front cover picture, you might expect this to be about the 68 Comeback Special only, it is more extensive than that. It covers 1968, 1969 and 1970 in fair detail but is also bookended with sections on the 'before' and 'after' periods. It is expertly and accurately written with very few obvious errors and contains loads of information that would normally be known only by devoted fans. If you want to relive Elvis's final glory period, in well written prose, then buy this book !
