It was compiled by his stepbrother David E. Stanley and it has a foreward by Lamar Fike, Elvis' best friend. It also has an elvis trivia quiz for the real fanatics.
If you need to know those more obscure songs he sang, you'll find it in here
Since this book was first published in '94, I can only spot two original albums missing from the music section. "For the asking" and "tomorrow is a long time" were supposed to have been released in the early and late 60's respectively, but instead they were dropped in favour of soundtrack albums. A lot of the songs from these two albums were used as fillers on 60's soundtrack albums.
Now these two long lost albums have recently been released by RCA. So the only reason they're not mentioned in this book, is because they weren't commercially available at the time this book was published.
It does mention at the beginning of the music section "this anthology contains only records released commercially - no bootlegs or unauthorised material".
They released this book with an alternative front cover in '98 (in the uk anyway) and I'm assuming it's exactly the same. I might buy that book because I've looked at my book so many times, especially in the music section, that some of the pages have come out. This is probably due to flicking back and forth so much.
Buy this book! You won't belive the amount of info in it.
