The year 2020 will be remembered as a ‘special’ year. We saw several great Elvis releases on CD and vinyl (lots of it!), many new books, movie releases on DVD, Blu-ray and in cinemas around the world. We had to say good-bye to friends from the Elvis world and there was the Covid-19 pandemic, which had a huge impact on the Elvis world too.
This year marked several anniversaries. We celebrated Elvis’ 85th birthday with virtual Elvis Week. 65 years ago Elvis signed his first contract with RCA Records, 60 years ago he appeared on Frank Sinatra’s ‘Welcome Home Elvis’ TV-show, released the classic ‘Elvis Is Back’ album and his first gospel LP ‘His Hand In Mine’.
2020 also marked the 50th anniversary of Elvis’ ‘On Stage Season’ and album, breaking his own attendance records, the sold-out Houston Astrodome Concerts and Elvis’ legendary visit to President Nixon at the White House.
But above all, 2020 marked the 50th anniversary of the legendary Nashville Marathon recording sessions and the release of the ‘Elvis: That’s The Way It Is’ movie and LP. Fans were spoiled with a great box-set, books and Elvis’ return to the big screen.
Everything Elvis Presley from 2020 (and more) is captured in this comprehensive. day-by-day yearbook. Fully illustrated with new in-depth reviews, articles and interviews on the main – and odd-ball – releases of the year.
The good, the bad, the funny and the sad, and even the news and reviews you may have missed. All packed in one complete book to revisit 2020 as it happened.
