Through dazzling illustrations, specially created maps, and compelling photographs, The Elvis Atlas locates our greatest musical icon in his world and his times. It gives us a rare glimpse at the landscape in which Elvis lived, recorded, performed, and made movies, and a unique perspective on the frantic touring schedules of his early years, the hysteria of the fans, the network TV specials, the army, the movies, and the comeback tour of his final years.
Detailed maps and reconstructions, organized in lavish double-page spreads, bring to life the extraordinary story of our greatest cultural phenomenon: The King of Rock and Roll. An indispensable guide for every Elvis fan and for everyone interested in American popular culture, The Elvis Atlas is lavishly illustrated in full-color throughout and filled with unique maps.
This book is excellent if you are eager to seek out places Elvis frequented throughout his life. Not simply Sun Records or other well-known locations; rather, the non-traditional hangouts. I have brought the book to Memphis and used it as a guide to visiting some out-of-the-way places. Elvis was a lot more than Graceland and Sun. If you are interested in other locations which assisted in his formative years, take this book to Memphis and look up some of the addresses listed. You'll gain a better appreciation for the King.
