From the Back Cover
In 1948, thirteen-year-old Elvis Presley and his family moved from Tupelo, Mississippi, to Memphis, thus beginning one of the great romances of our time. Elvis loved Memphis, and Memphis loved him back. As the young rock-and-roller's fame rose, he became inextricably linked with the city he called home. Today, if there is a single name that is synonymous with Memphis, Tennessee, it is Elvis Presley. Memphis Elvis-Style is the definitive guidebook to the King's city. The book traces Elvis's life from the apartments, record shops, and churches where he dreamed of stardom to the recording studios, nightclubs, and radio stations where those dreams became reality. Aside from well-known spots like Graceland and Sun Studios, the book provides an intimate look at many lesser-known places that nevertheless played a vital role in Elvis's life. For example, you can see the Circle G Ranch, where Elvis and Priscilla honeymooned. Or stop by the site of Lansky Brothers' Men's Store, where Elvis first purchased his colorful stage clothes. And while you're on your way there, visit the site of the Loew's State Theater, where the teenaged Elvis had his first part-time job. From the restaurants where he ate, to the dealerships where he bought his cars, to the stages where he performed, this book tells the inside story of the King's love affair with his hometown. With many previously unpublished photographs, and maps and instructions to all of the sites, Memphis Elvis-Style truly is the only way to see Memphis through the eyes of Elvis.
