An insightful look at the 30 months when Elvis truly reigned as ”The King Of Rock ‘n’ Roll”. With 285 classic, rare and previously unpublished photos and 69 minutes of previously unreleased music.
Designing this book was an honour and a pleasure. Text is limited, prioritising roughly 300 iconic photos of the legendary stage performer from a period arguably considered his most interesting years, 1955 - 1958.
As he grew from being a boy from the cotton fields to becoming The King of Rock 'n' Roll, he took popular music and the music industry to a new level, spreading wealth and opportunity to everyone around him.
The concept and approach that underpins this project is to re live and recapture the phenomenon that is Elvis Presley — The King of Rock 'N’ Roll. An up close and personal exploration of one of musics most historical figures focusing on his most prolific years.
This wonderful creative opportunity was conceived, overseen and steered by Ernst Mikael Jørgensen. Mikael has researched tirelessly over many years, traveling the world and retracing the King’s steps to collect images, anecdotes and documentation to bring you one of the most comprehensive audio visual compilations ever produced.
