I have been admiring Alfred Wertheimer's photographs of Elvis since 1958 and am of the opinion that no other photographer comes anywhere near to capturing Elvis at his most natural. After the brief Wertheimer period Elvis was transported into the "Superstar Arena" and there was very little access to the "real" man. Although that are not too many "unpublished" Wertheimer photographs in this book, what there are helps make this a worthwhile purchase. Funnily enough the pictures here go better with the text of Wertheimer's 1979 book "Elvis '56 In The Beginning", than they do with "Elvis (One On One)". For maximum benefit I suggest you ensure you have both books.

Beautiful quality book choc full of photos that any one interested in 1950's culture should own. I agree that a minor proportion of the photos are postage stamp small but there are just so many full page in excellent quality, it's hard to complain. Note; the selections vary in the Alfred Wertheimer books but they are all excellent. Some of my favourite are those showing Elvis asking the way & strolling home having got off the train a stop short of Memphis, seemingly without a care in the world. Wonderful!

This is a fantastic book to either dip into or read fully. The photos are stunning-i almost wish the book was larger as the photos would look amazing in A3 size. The text is very readable and gives a good insight into exciting times before the fame of Elvis took over. Good gift for any Elvis lover!
