(1995/Jellyroll) English, Paperback, 22x27.5 cm, 224 pages, b/w illustrations, contains: Information (with illustrations) on the primary RCA Record Labels 1955-1968, Inner Sleeves, Master Tape Lacquer Coding, Metallizing and Plating, US LPs, Singles and EPs. Bootlegs listed for identification purposes only. INTRODUCTION The most significant modification in this edition of Presleyana is the separation and identification of individual pressings of records in all three formats: singles, extended plays and long plays. Previous Elvis record guides provided separate lis s for each major label design switch. such as from ´´Mono´´ to ´´Monaural´´ to ´´Orange;´´ however, until now there has been no separation of stampings, or pressings, within the period of a articular label design. There may have been 30 different pressings of an album during the years when only three different label design were used. Often there are variations with each of R ´s primary label designs, but each variation is usually found to be exclusive within a specific press run. Now for the first time these changes will make sense to the collector. More importantly is the ability now to match an absolutely correct cover with each disc made. Previous guides often made no distinction between covers issued in 1964 with a black label disc and one reissued with an orange label pressing in 1971. Lacking this information. one could not easily distinguish whether a near-mint cover for a black label dog on top Blue Hawaii is really one from 1961, or one that came with a 1973 orange label reissue. Since this is the first published attempt to detect what differences. if any. exist on reissue covers that distinguishs them from earlier issues. there are still some that remain to be verified. Each of these is marked ´´Verification Pending.´´ Any input as to what makes these covers different from previous ones will be appreciated and will be incorporated in future editions of Presleyana.

Taschenbuch - O´Sullivan Woodside & Co - First Edition - 1980 - Englisch WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF PRESLEYANA To the eyes of the whole world our cover is unmistakably Elvis, and what a tribute to the man that it is not even necessary to see his face to know that! We´d like to extend our thanks many times over to the photographer, Phil Gelormine, a true Elvis fan of the first rank (and publisher of Elvis World), for the use of this magnificent on-stage shot! We´re very happy with the photographic content of Presleyana, not just for the quality of the photos of the King that came to us from such divergent sources as Dave Kent of the Louisiana Hayride and Collector´s Bookstore of Hollywood (many of which we´ve run full page), but for the fact that we are able to show fans many dozens of the rarest Elvis records, some never before published and many so rare as to be thought not to exist or only rumored so until now! WHAT CAME BEFORE This book sets the Elvisstandard for all time. The onlublication to even compare with it was the widely distributed Complete Elvis magazine. 7´. C.L.E´ was not a price guide, however, and its principle photographic content was a thorough representation of the covers of all commercial Elvis Presley picture sleeves for singles and jackets for EPs and albums. Even though T.C.E. was also a Jellyroll product, we had no quality control over its production and some of the typical problems that result from having a staff of uninformed layout people found their way into print. We still hope to issue an updated and far more ´´complete´´ Complete Elvis because of the mass market audience that can be reached, but to the readers of Presleyana, what you´ll find in the pages of this book is without precedent! COMING OF AGE This is a book that will come to mean more and more to you, as you familiarize yourself with it. This is a book that will settle arguments, end confusion, correct misconceptions and add to the knowledge of anyone who owns a copy. If it could ever be said before, now collecting Elvis Presley records has come of age! A few collectors may be surprised by the quadruple price structure. The spread—that is, what collectors will pay for a record in ´´good´´ average used condition compared to what they will put out for a record in ´´mint´´ unplayed condition—is constantly expanding. The ´´spread´´ is spreading. Five or six years ago it was obvious the difference meant less, as the standard of double (a range, for example, of $10 to $20, versus a range today of $10 to $40) prevailed. As prices have arisen, however, and big money has often come into the picture, it was inevitable that collectors who weren´t so particular before would increasingly demand perfection as protection to their investment. This is as logical as it was inevitable. NOT PEAKED OUT We can look for the prices asked and realized (not always the same thing) to increase on Elvis records, as the demand shows no signs of having peaked out. And we probably can assume records will follow the path of coins and some other collectibles that will zero in, eventually, on price spreads of ten times difference between ´´good´´ and ´´mint´´. That is why, to the uninitiated—and that includes the swap meet dealer and the thrift shop owner—we advise you not to look only at the right-hand column of our prices and tell yourself that´s what your records are worth. In almost all cases you´ll be wrong. Prices do not start at ´´mint´´ and work down, according to defects. They start at the average condition usually found, which is ´´good,´´ and work up, if their condition warrants. Stated in another way, collectors do not pay less for a record in lesser condition—they think of themselves as being willing to pay more (perhaps than they think it´s really worth) if it´s in top, ´´near mint´´ condition. As an aside to new collectors or investors, this growing spread has good aspects to it from whatever your viewpoint. If you´re just interested in the music, in many cases as the ´´spread´´ widens and the value of ´´mint´´ goes up, the price of ´´good´´ does not go up. So, as you fill holes in your collection, taking inflation into consideration, you might be able to pick up some records ´´cheaper´´ in the future (in ´´good,´´ remember) than you can today. On the other hand, if investment is a factor in your determination and you buy only ´´fine´´ to ´´mint´´, that´s where your future profit will be, even though you have to lay out more money now. If, on the
Taschenbuch - 176 Seiten - Collector´s Guide Publishing - 1994 - Englisch The Hitchhiker´s Guide To Elvis By Mick Farren Elvis Presley...modern history has never seen a culture more obsessed with an individual than we are with Elvis. The entertainer died nearly twenty years ago, yet his spirit persistently endures—some may even say he´s more popular today. Why? Writer Mick Farren journeys through the bizarre world of Elvis, which he has dubbed the ´´Elvis Universe,´´ by constructing an exhaustive A to Z encyclopedia of everything and everyone relevant to The King. With over 340 entries and 90 photos, The Hitchhiker´s Guide To Elvis is virtually unparalleled in its scope: • For collectors, Elvis memorabilia is covered in-depth, featuring everything from Elvis cologne to Elvis toothpick holders, with complete information on availability • Nearly every theory regarding Elvis´ death is explained and examined • The women in Elvis´ life—his wife Priscilla and daughter Lisa Marie, the dozens of women who claim to have had affairs with him, the women he met in Hollywood—they´re all thoroughly discussed • His worshippers are looked at, from the famous and not-so-famous impersonators to other everyday people affected and influenced by Elvis • Elvis´ presence in the mass media is examined, with a complete look at the films, books, and TV series made about The King • Rare items, like an actual prescription written by the infamous Dr. Nick, and an almost illegible letter written by Elvis to President Nixon, are presented • The book begins with a fascinating essay by Mick Farren to introduce us to the Elvis Universe • And much, much more... The Hitchhiker´s Guide To Elvis is a must for any Elvis fan, and an entertaining, accessible tool for those just getting started.
(2009/Praytome) Hardcover, 21x30 cm, English, 124 pages of notes, rare photos & memorabilia in b&w and color. ´´This book is dedicated to Elvis Presley for showing us all that what we do with our lives will be our legacy; and to my dear friend and mentor, Colonel Tom Parker, who taught me that anything is possible if you only believe - and if you´re a good enough snowman.´´ Foreword by Sam Thompson I am so pleased and honored to have been asked by my old and valued friend, Charlie Stone, to write the foreword to his book about his days with the Elvis Presley Show - Elvis and the Colonel. I met Elvis in November of 1972 through my sister, Linda, who was dating him at the time. I was an officer with the Shelby County Sheriff´s Department in Memphis, and Elvis and I quickly became friends. Elvis was a good friend of my Sheriff in the department, Roy Nixon; and in the Spring of 1973, Roy informed me that Elvis wanted me to go on a concert tour with him. A two-week leave was arranged for me; and that was the beginning of my touring years with Elvis: whenever there was a tour, I would get a leave to work security on the tour. In July of 1976, I left the department and went to work for Elvis on a full-time basis, as a personal bodyguard and tour advance man, providing security for Elvis at Graceland, his homes in California and on all the concert tours,including hotel and airport security.

Magazine - 32 pages - english - b/w - numbered edition! last copies INTRODUCTORY NOTES This Rockin´ Records Special Elvis Edition fulfills two needs that a flood of Elvis record collectors have been writing and calling us about. FIRST: Record collectors and dealers who don´t get involved in anything other than Elvis collectibles asked about the possibility of a separate guide, one that would contain all of the Elvis infor-mation that appears in Rockin´ Records Reference Book & Price Guide, but without the information on other artists. Not only does this special edition contain all of the important Elvis data, exactly as prepared and printed in Rockin´ Records, but the increased amount of space allows for larger type to be used, making this guide even easier to use. Naturally, it is also more convenient to carry with you when you go ´record hunting.´ Noteworthy also is the savings to the Elvis collector, with this edi-tion priced considerably lower than the huge Rockin´ Records. SECOND: In the three years since the last Osborne Elvis guide, Presleyana Second Edition, a tremendous amount of new Elvis material has appeared. Surprisingly, a great deal of the newly discovered Elvis record collectibles are older releases. Some are even from the fifties! There has also been a great deal of recently issued product, most in conjunction with the Elvis 50th Anniver-sary Celebration. Everyone has been wanting all of this new information and no one wanted to wait until 1987, when our giant Elvis Collectors Guidebook is due, marking the 10th Anni-versary of the King´s passing. This Special Collectors´ Edition will surely satisfy both of these needs. The Rockin´ Records price guide format is one that was carefully devised to provide for the inclusion of over 100,000 records by thousands of pop and rock artists. It also enables us to include every type of recording in one multi- purpose guidebook: 7-Inch 45rpm singles, both 33rpm and 45rpm; 78rpm singles; 12-Inch singles, both 33rpm and 45rpm; Extended Play EPs; Long Play LPs, 10- Inch and 12-Inch; Compact Discs and more. The format is structured, under the artist heading, alphabetically by LABEL rather than by title. Listings for each label (which are mostly RCA Victor in the Elvis section) appear in numerical order! In many instances, listings that are numerical by catalog number are also chronological in sequence of release, but there are also many times where this isn´t true. Since the year of release is also provided for each listing, the reader knows imme-diately the pattern being followed by the label at the time. The numerical listings generally utilize only that portion of the catalog number that designates that particular issue. Therefore, letter and number prefixes are not used UNLESS it is absolutely necessary to distinguish one release from another (such as an LSP album being reissued with an AFL1 prefix but with the same catalog number). This means that to locate RCA Victor 47-6357, look up only 6357. Finding EPA-994 requires looking for 994. SPS 33-347 will be found as 347. When you can only think of the title of the Elvis record you wish to locate in the guide, and the disc is not available to pick up a number from, refer to the handy TITLES/CATALOG NUM-BERS INDEX. This chapter preceeds the actual record listings section. Look for the title in either of the three catagories, Sin-gles, EPs or LPs, and you´ll instantly know the original catalog number followed by any and all reissues. You then know exactly where to find the information you seek. The TITLES/CATALOG NUMBERS INDEX also represents the first time in print for this very useful compilation of recording information. Without a doubt, this chapter will provide an excel-lent addition to your Elvis library, apart from its usefulness within the confines of this edition. Listing and pricing so many releases in Rockin´ Records has forced us to economize on space, resulting in the listing of individual titles WHENEVER NECESSARY but not in those instances where it´s possible to group a number of equally valuable releases together on one line. Again, ANYTIME we find it necessary to give a separate listing to a record in order to clearly and accurately present the information, we will do it. Because of its many complexities, the Elvis section does, in fact, require a tremendous amount of individual title separation.
