Not just another Elvis biography, this work explores why the shy, young Southern singer won America's heart. Simply put, Elvis was cool before anyone knew what cool was. Anna Fields's energetic yet objective voice is an excellent fit. We sense the innocence of young Elvis and his unsophisticated family; through Fields we are introduced to young Priscilla, who surely didn't know what she was getting in to but became tough enough to handle it. Fields avoids a stereotypical Elvis impersonation but provides just a hint of his voice. Unfortunately, the listener misses the visuals: Elvis's instinct for flamboyant clothing and his passion for decorating Graceland cry out for photos. Too bad we can't see the pictures.
