9781844062737: Elvis An Illustrated History

Influenced by country, gospel, and rhythm and blues—particularly, the black music of Memphis and the Mississippi delta— Elvis Presley blended these diverse sounds into a unique, modern style that appealed to a new generation the world over.  He died early, leaving a legacy from his 23- year career that remains unparalleled.  

 

He is the top-selling solo artist of all time with over 600 million records.  Twenty albums reached #1 on the charts and thirty-three singles climbed to the #1 spot.  To date, 90 albums have gone gold, 52 platinum, and 25 multi-platinum. 

 

Elvis also burst onto film when the success of his music thrust him into the public’s imagination.  He swiveled, bumped, flirted, and kissed his way into the hearts of multiple generations of women who watched him on the screen in the late 1950s, 1960s, and early 1970s. 

 

From the wildly rhythmic gyrations of his earliest days on TV to the notorious white jumpsuits and wide gold belts of his Las Vegas days, Elvis never ceased to entertain the many who thronged his concerts and screamed for his attention.  Not in the 35 years since his death has any entertainer surpassed the record of accomplishments and struck the raw nerve of music lovers around the globe like Elvis did.  Elvis may have left the building, but he will never leave our hearts!
