Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

There's no mention of sequins, drugs, or peanut butter in this understated biography of the teenaged Elvis, a serious and worthy attempt to answer the question, "Who was this guy before he was an icon, the voice of a generation, the King?" The essential clarity and honesty of Guralnick's prose clearly limns the eager, malleable boy whose immense talent changed the course of American music.

Pressestimmen

A wonderful book...Guralnick gives us an Elvis of real flesh and blood...the richest and most detailed protrait of Presely we have ever had. SUNDAY TELEGRAPH Unrivalled...Elvis steps out of these pages, you can feel him breathe, this book cancels out all others - BOB DYLAN Wonderful.Guralnick deserves to live in Graceland - RODDY DOYLE Last Train to Memphis is the first part of Peter Gurlanick's epic two-volume life of rock 'n roll's founding father--and when no less an authority than Bob Dylan writes that "this book cancels out all others", you know Guralnick must be doing something right. Exhaustive and thorough, though always written from a sympathetic standpoint, this first Guralnick is a scrupulous biographer, now established as the definitive chronicler of the strange life and turbulent times of Elvis Presley; better still, his enthusiasm for Elvi s' music shines through on every page of the text. And in the end, after all Patrick Humphries, AMAZON.CO.UK REVIEW -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Every book written about Elvis Presley lacks two things: the essence of the person and a full explanation of the magic of Elvis Presley. Galarchuk's book "Last Train to Memphis" provides the answer to both questions, plus much more.
This book will appeal to readers who are not fans of Presley's music because it the book describes Presley rise to the top of the music industry with the hype or destruction of most Presley books.
A strongpoint of the book is the early 1950s, the period when Elvis emerged from a shy, poor, and sheltered teenager with a into a mega star with an unlimited one.
He also dispells the critics who do not respect Presley's musical talent giving him little or no credit for the production of his music. Galarchuk very strongly illustrates that Elvis was the driving force behind the musical material in the early years before Colonel Parker took complete control of Presley's career.
The secret of this book is the number of unfamilar persons who knew Elvis and were able to provide insights to the man that have never been heard before. The most interesting voice from these persons was Dixie Locke, who knew Elvis better than anyone because she was there when he crossed the bridge from the unknown Elvis into the bright lights where he became "The King" and would never be able to go back to the "old" Elvis again.

Peter Guralnick makes the reader feel as if he is actually in the company of a young and shy Elvis Presley--BEFORE he is "ELVIS." A fascinating read about a true American success story (the sequel outlines the unfortunate demise of Elvis). Without a doubt, this is the definitive book about Elvis Presley.

1 von 1 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Craig Amabello am 2. März 2000
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Even if you've read 25 five other Elvis books & think you've heard it all before, your in for a real treat with this book. Well written, interesting, Often illuminating thoughts & emotions of "the king" are disclosed at a very entertaining & well crafted pace to make you re-experience the Real life of Elvis as he himself lived it. This book gets to the heart of Elvis's life, Dreams, Woes, & Dispare. It teaches you that even "the King" had lots of normal, human feelings. You see in all to clear detail how many around him manipulated him for their own concerns. As surprising & sad as it is, after reading this book, you almost don't envy Elvis, but almost feel sorry for him & how he let his own life & destiny slip from his own control & never really went back to what he really was famous for, Rock & Roll. Overall: The Absolute, definitive, last word book on Elvis Presley's Miraculous rise as a living legend, right down to his fall as a sad & lonely, & confused normal human being. The King is Dead....But his Name Lives on!

Format: Taschenbuch
I have just completed Peter Guralnick's wonderful biography of Elvis' early life and can say that it is a refreshing insight, not to the hype or myth of Elvis but, to the heart of who he was.
While not a big fan of Elvis' music I am a fan of biographies, both in print and on film and found this one reaches into it's subject like none I have read or seen previously.
It is rare that a biographical piece ventures further than a list of fact and "almost facts" tied together in a loose story, however Guralnick has allowed us to get to know Elvis in a way that even some of the so-called "Memphis Mafia" never really did
I look forward to picking up the story in volumeII

Despite many long-standing and ingrained elvis-fans, I am a very young and new fan, so I have neither lots of comparison to other biographies, nor do I have first-hand experience from how the feeling was like in his lifetime. But just like millions of others, I was drawn into this man's undeniable fascination, so I started clicking my way through thousands of elvis-themed videoclips, photos and articles. I also watched tons of documentaries and films such as "Elvis in Vegas" "Elvis in love" "Elvis Presley-the last 24 hours" "Elvis meets Nixon" "Elvis and me" or "The lost love of Elvis Presley". Some of these were quite informing and impressing, while others were so strange, far-fetched and corny I could just shake my head.
It was time for a serious, profound biography. The internet said Peter Guralnicks' books on Elvis were the best, so I ordered the first volume which covers the first 24 years of his life. I'm not even through with it yet, but I already recognized that this was not a mispurchase. People like me who like everthing in pinpoint accuracy and double-proven will be very satisfied. The author interviewed literally everybody who had ever been around Elvis (the last 20 pages or so are a list of names of people to whom he expresses his thanks for beeing involved in the work.) This does not only guarantee historical accuracy, but it also opens different perspectives on different situations.(sometimes also including Elvis' own point of view in retrospect)
The author writes his biography in a careful tone, beeing cautious about his own judgement. He lets the numerous quotations tell their own tale, sometimes slightly ironic and disenchanting, sometimes tender and endearing. He spares us of hysterical admiration.
