Product description

Review

"An amazing inside story... Ace Collins gives us an intimate description of Elvis the musician." -- 'Elvis Today'

"Shines the spotlight on the other side of Elvis' golden hits and provides background information." -- ElvisNews.com

Synopsis

The stories behind the luck, inspiration, and timing that brought hits like: "Heartbreak Hotel", "Don't Be Cruel", "In the Ghetto", and "A Little Less Conversation" - to life are told in this look at some of the world's most popular hits. Fans will be given the inside story of how these and other of the best known rock songs were written, why they were recorded, and how they became hits. Along the way, they will meet and get to know the men and women who wrote songs for the 'King', follow the route these songs took to Elvis, and understand how he reshaped the songs to fit his vision. The author spent countless hours interviewing songwriters, digging through dusty charts, and listening to demos in order to uncover the great stories he tells here. Each song in this book is a commentary on where the world was and what was making it tick, making these songs as much a glimpse into the life of America as into the life of Elvis.
