'Fasten your seatbelt and hold on tight! Paul Lichter is taking you back to a magical time in Las Vegas when Elvis set up court and reigned as King. He may have toured the country, but when it came to live performances, Las Vegas was home to Elvis - The book in your hands is a virtual time capsule that will allow you to relive the excitement of Elvis on stage in Vegas.' --Bud Glass, The King's Ransom Museum
'This is the ultimate Elvis book dealing with Elvis' performances in Las Vegas. It is an Elvis Presley fan's paradise - a front-row ticket to anything and everything related to the King's Vegas years. The extensive 'live' show chapter is easily worth the price alone. Paul Lichter has done it again.' --Paul Dowling, president of Worldwide Elvis

Well if that was the case then by 1976 Elvis would have set fire to that painting.
The twice-yearly month-long appearances with mostly two shows a night from 1969 to 1976 that his manager contracted him to made him apathetic to the point of sickness and depression. Elvis didn't stay in Las Vegas because he wanted to, but because he was contracted to. The first few years were new and exciting but by 1974 the signs of Vegas-weariness were beginning to show on Elvis. Elvis thrived on challenges and Las Vegas no longer represented such. Far from it in fact!
Still, being the absolute professional that he was, he honoured his contracts and consistently gave his audiences his best. Going to Vegas in the '70's mostly meant going to see Elvis Presley live on stage. Elvis WAS Vegas back then and this is what this book is mainly about.
Paul Lichter is very well known for his knowledge and contributions on anything Elvis. And this work should rank as one of his great achievements. With a glorifying preface by Joe Tunzi - another brilliant authority on Elvis Presley - the book impressively tells Elvis' story in words as well as beautiful and many previously rare pictures, with plenty of detailed information and stories on his Vegas appearances and incidents. It is a great reference of this historical period when the King ruled Nevada's oasis.
It is no exaggeration to state that Elvis 'owned' Vegas from '69 to '76 and this book goes a long way towards confirming it. And for the £12.80 price paid, this 284 page hardback is a big and beautiful bargain.
After all the books that have been issued on Elvis it takes "something" special to make me sit up and take notice and at such a reasonable price. This book is a must have for anyone who calls themselves an Elvis Presley fan.
Well worth the pricetag and more ...TCE
