I would definitely recommend everyone to purchase at least three copies of this fabulous book: One to keep in your bookshelf and the other two to be given away as gifts.
So when i heard about this new book by Irish Elvis fan Ivor Casey, it sounded very,very fascinating, appealing to not just the Elvis fan but to those interested in Irish music and it did not disappoint, very, very interesting and from a different angle, if you love or just like Elvis and Irish music then this book is a 'MUST' read !!!!!
Although there have been many biographies of Elvis written already, I found it particularly refreshing to read about his life and music from the perspective of an Irish author. After all, Elvis not only touched America - he touched the world, and few books focus on his international appeal.
One minor criticism is the lack of photographs in the book, though I appreciate that photographs connecting Elvis with Ireland would be very difficult to source.
As someone with a growing interest in Irish popular music, I particularly enjoyed reading about the many Irish artists who were influenced by Elvis's music such as U2 and Thin Lizzy, and how they were inspired by different stages of Elvis's career. It was also interesting reading about all the Irish artists who have recorded his songs such as The Cranberries, Aslan and The Pogues.
Overall, I recommend this book to fans of Elvis as well as anyone interested in learning about the history of Irish popular music.
