Over het boek
HBO followed in Elvis’ footsteps, investigating the comprehensive and creative journey from his childhood through the final 1976 Jungle Room recording sessions in the documentary ‘Elvis Presley: The Searcher’. Lisa Marie Presley followed in her father’s footsteps, recording a new duet with him for the 'Where No One Stands Alone' album that featured newly created versions of Elvis’ gospel classics.
2018 also brought us books and magazines going beyond the man, the myth, the music and the artistry of the Elvis bootlegs. Books investigating Elvis’ relationship with the Afro-American community, counting down his best recordings and many other interesting subjects.
The year saw hundreds of new CD, LP, single and digital music (re)releases. New and old movies were released on DVD, Blu-ray, streaming services and in cinemas around the world. Elvis sold out concert arenas across Europe for ‘The Wonder of You’ tour.
It is an understatement to conclude that Elvis, 41 years after his untimely death, continues to inspire and entertain millions of fans around the world. Sony acknowledged the ongoing impact of his music and artistry with new RIAA and BPI Gold and multi-Platinum sales awards, and the President of the United States honored Elvis with the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
