The book showcases more than 250 color and black & white visuals based around Elvis' not well documented tour in November 1971. For this reason the Tunzi/Lichter collaboration is a most welcome release. The November 1971 tour ran from Friday 5 November to Tuesday 16 November and comprised concerts in Minneapolis, Cleveland, Louisville, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Boston, Cincinnati, Houston, Dallas, Tuscaloosa, Kansas City and Salt Lake City. Elvis By Special Request 71 At 40 features a section devoted to each of the stadium stops during the tour. Will delight concert enthusiasts. Highlights include:a young crippled fan helped on stage in Minneapolis by the Colonel to meet Elvis,Elvis on bended knee in Cleveland several great full photo in Boston,Elvis with mic in hand lieing resplendently on his back during one of his concerts in Dallas,Elvis doing a splits type karate stretch in Tuscon. A large number of the visuals appear to have been previously unpublished or are at least particularly rare.And with Elvis wearing several spectacular jumpsuits throughout the November engagement there is a pictorial feast.Paul Lichter's introductory essays are solid and provide a nice overview of what was happening in Elvis's life at the time, highlights from the tour and moments in Elvis history (including excerpts from Jon Landau's wonderful article, In Praise of Elvis Presley, published by Rolling Stone magazine and information on Al Dvorin's legendary "Ladies and Gentlemen, Elvis has left the building. Thank you and goodnight." The inclusion of press reviews from the tour adds real value to the book as it provides another important element in the bigger picture of what an Elvis show meant.
