Editorial Reviews

Review

"Kealing's 'Elvis Ignited' captures a legend's beginnings in Florida. This is the Elvis that created the legend: young, beautiful, raw and revolutionary, a shot of pure energy into mid-century America."

-Colette Bancroft, Tampa Bay Times

Review

"A persuasive argument that Presley’s "moonshot" to fame could not have happened without Florida. . . . Deftly captures a pre-Interstate Florida where an anonymous Presley would be traveling for grueling hours down every two-laner in the state in his signature automobile."--Palm Beach Post







"I don’t think there was a better time and place to be a teenager than in Florida in the 1950s. It was such a magical place. Elvis is part of what contributed to that excitement."--Bob Graham, former Florida governor and United States senator







"Kealing tells us the story of what happened when Elvis arrived in Florida and what role the Sunshine State played in his life and musical career. This is a critical era in the Elvis Saga."--William McKeen, editor of Rock and Roll Is Here to Stay: An Anthology







"A Florida-centric look at his 1956 breakout state for people who thought they knew everything about Elvis."--Joel Selvin, author of Altamont: The Rolling Stones, the Hells Angels, and the Inside Story of Rock’s Darkest Day







"Presents a great picture of what it was like to be a touring musician in the 1950s and also of Florida at the time and how the culture was changed by the shock of Elvis."--Joy Wallace Dickinson, author of Remembering Orlando: Tales from Elvis to Disney --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
