For those who love minutia there is an appendix with set lists, show dates and times, his stage costumes and the other members of the show. Fans of Elvis will love the fact that the pictures, even up to his later days are all very flattering and show Elvis at his best.
Even if you are not an Elvis lover, this book can be of interest. It describes a time and place that no longer exists, both as a city and as a part of show business. It is a fascinating description of a pop phenomenon.
Perhaps Mr. Lichter should stick to books filled with concert photos as that's what he does best as the mistakes in this book are so glaring that he should have had someone proofread it first for accuracy. For example, page 162 states "Elvis changed a verse while performing Lawdy Miss Clawdy." Actually, the song in question was Love Me Tender. On the back sleeve, it states "Paul Lichter is the world's leading Elvisologist." If that's true, then he could have done a better job on Elvis' Vegas years than the hatchet job that he put in print. Buy the book for the photos alone and not the text and buy it used if you can as it's not worth the full amount. Mr. Lichter, you should have done better.
Un libro que los fanaticos de Elvis deben tener. Tiene unas fotos increibles y muestran diferentes facetas de los ultimos años de Elvis. Vale la pena tenerlo!!
