Synopsis

Gospel music was a significant part of not only who Elvis was as a man, but as an artist as well. This book looks at his roots and the role of gospel in his foundational years, as well as the comfort, solace, and strength it offered him in the years of his meteoric rise in popularity. The gospel side of Elvis is a rarely explored aspect of this American icon and one that reveals so much about who Elvis really was. From the All-night sings he attended in his youth to the gospel quartets he incorporated into his shows, Elvis insisted on having constant access to this music he loved. He found it to be a source of comfort when the demands of his career were too much. He used it as a way to stay in shape vocally or to pass the time while on movie sets. He gathered friends, family, and admirers in his suite after shows to unwind during which Gospel was the music of choice. It was enrichment; it was comfort; it was home for him. "The Gospel Side of Elvis" explores why gospel music was so important to Elvis as told through the stories of those who knew him best and who sang right along with him.

Ich möchte eine kleine Vorgeschichte zu meiner Rezension erzählen: Am 25.01.2013 habe ich ein geniales Konzert der TCB-Band in Maxhütte-Haidhof erlebt. Bei dem Konzert waren auch die Elvis Imperials dabei, eben auch Joe Moscheo und Terry Blackwood. Nach dem Konzert fand eine Autogrammstunde statt. Die Fans standen geduldig in einer Schlange und ließen sich Autogramme auf CDs, Fotos, etc. geben. Ich stand auch in der Schlange und hatte dieses Buch von Joe Moscheo dabei. Nachdem die Musiker die Autogramme wie am Fließband gaben, schob ich vorsichtig mein Buch Joe Moscheo unter die Nase. Er war so beschäftigt mit dem Autogramme schreiben, dass er nämlich gar nicht mehr die Leute anschaute. Aber als er sein Buch sah, stoppte er auf einmal, blickte zuerst auf "sein" Buch und dann hob er seinen Kopf ganz langsam und schaute mich direkt an. Seine erste Frage war, ob ich es gelesen habe. Ich konnte nur die Wahrheit sagen, nämlich nein. Ich hatte sein Buch erst vorher über Amazon bekommen. Er nahm dann das Buch, schaute mich weiter an und sagt, dass ich es lesen soll und schrieb mir eine persönliche Widmung hinein. Ich antwortete ihm darauf, dass ich es tun werde.

Und ja, ich habe nun das Buch gelesen, mein Wort gehalten.

The Gospel Side of Elvis ist ein wunderbar einfühlsames geschriebenes Buch von Joe Moscheo, das niemals langweilig wird.

Er schafft es, uns die "Gospel Side" von Elvis, von seiner frühesten Jugend bis zu seinem Tod näher zu bringen. Es ist auch eine Entdeckungsreise zu den Wurzeln des amerikanischen Southern Gospel. Beim Lesen der Kapitel bekommt man automatisch Lust dazu, sich die Musik-Gruppen anzuhören, von denen auch Elvis begeistert war.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Warm, Gentle Look At The King Of Rock And Roll 8. August 2007
Von Mel Odom - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Over the years since his death in 1977, many books, big screen and television movies, and documentaries have been written and filmed about the legend that was Elvis Presley. Despite the fact that he's been dead for the last 30 years (although you'll still find some diehard fans and conspiracy theorists who don't believe that), Elvis has remained a high-profile figure.

Hardly a year passes without an Elvis sighting. His birthday, January 8, never passes without commentary in the news and on the street. And most people, not just fans, remember the date of his death - August 16, 1977. Add up those numbers, 8 plus 16 plus 1977, and you get 2001 which was also the name of the number Elvis used to close his concerts, "2001: A Space Odyssey." Channel 13 on Sirius radio champions itself as "all-Elvis all the time."

With all of the books and other materials available, not to mention the fan sites on the Internet, it wouldn't seem that another book of interest about Elvis would be possible. That's what I was thinking when I saw the title of Joe Moscheo's new book, THE GOSPEL SIDE OF ELVIS. Still, I was curious. However, once I started reading the book, I was pleasantly surprised.

But first a little background is necessary. Joe Moscheo was a member of the group of gospel singers called The Imperials. The group has been around since 1964 and has had several member changes since then. The Imperials still exist as a Southern gospel contemporary Christian venue.

Gospel music has roots in the church, primarily in the South, and is attributed to the African-American culture. Since its inception, the music has been divided between white and black singers. Even back in the 1950s, Elvis came under fire for listening to black music and bringing it into the rock and roll scene. While reading Moscheo's book, I discovered that Elvis's interest in that music was longer and deeper than I'd previously believed.

Looking back over Elvis's career, you can see that he's never been far from gospel music. This is one of the trends that Moscheo brings out in his narrative. In fact after Elvis's success on NBC in 1968 in a show that's come to be known as the '68 Comeback Special, Elvis got the opportunity to play the International Hotel in Las Vegas. Normally his backup band was the Jordanaires. They had been with him on the television show and had sung with him for a number of years. Unfortunately, due to success they'd been having, the group wasn't able to do the Vegas shows.

Elvis's next choice for backup singers was The Imperials. That was when Joe Moscheo really got to know Elvis Presley. From 1969 to 1971, the group performed with Elvis for ten weeks every year. They also attended the concerts after the concert up in Elvis's room every night. They became privy to lot of Elvis's private life.

Moscheo's book isn't a tell-all bash of the man who's heralded as the king of rock and roll. Nor does the author praise or defend Elvis. Rather, Moscheo presents a fairly even-handed picture of Elvis. He acknowledges Elvis's strengths and weaknesses, the things that made him great as well as the things that brought about his downfall.

I enjoyed reading the book a lot. I grew up in the Elvis era. My mom had been one of the girls who had fallen in love with his music back in the 1950s, then fell in love with him all over again in 1968 when he did the live television special. I'd watched that special and thought Elvis was cool. I still own it on DVD. I knew most of what Moscheo writes about in his book. There's no new material here. Nothing that hasn't already been written.

What makes this book so good is that while I read it, I felt like I was listening to Moscheo tell me his story in his own words. The book is written in first person and is chock full of anecdotes, memories, and interpretations that are uniquely the author's own. Moscheo only talks about those things that he had personal experience with. He makes a statement as much about himself and gospel music as he does about Elvis Presley.

THE GOSPEL SIDE OF ELVIS is thoroughly readable. I finished the book in a couple of sittings and was reluctant to be done with it. Moscheo's writing is diverting and consuming. I could tell that he had loved and respected the man behind the music and controversy. There are a lot of pictures of Elvis and The Imperials during their performances.

There may be other books that deal with much of material found between the covers of this one, but I doubt any of them explore the material in the same personal and entertaining way that Moscheo does. This book will undoubtedly be picked up by the fans as soon as it comes out. But I think it would be a good primer for those who want to learn about the Elvis phenomena that started in the 1950s and still lingers within this world.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Elvis, from his gospel-loving side, is a very good read 2. August 2007
Von Armchair Interviews - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Sometimes legends are formed by the simplest acts of kindness. It is common knowledge that Elvis Presley paid $3.98 to record two songs as a present for his mother's birthday. Anyone at that studio would have never guessed that this simple boy from Memphis, Tennesee, would one day be called The King of Rock-n-Roll.

Elvis rocketed to stardom and his physical antics on stage are fodder for hundreds of impersonators today. Popular Elvis songs readily come to mind: Hound Dog, Jailhouse Rock, and Love Me Tender can still be heard on the airwaves today. Too few seek to understand the greatest influence in this cultural icon's life: his insatiable love for gospel music.

Joe Moscheo, a member of the Imperials who sang as back-up for Elvis for four years, introduces Elvis as profoundly impacted by gospel music in The Gospel Side of Elvis. Moscheo portrays a Elvis as a man who would listen to a gospel recording perhaps 100 times to understand the musical intricacies. During a performance Elvis might ask his back-up singers to sing a gospel song a cappella, and have the audience bow their heads in submission. Frequently, after a performance, Elvis would have all-night vigils in his suite where gospel songs would be sung until early morning hours.

It is refreshing to read a work that strives to paint Elvis as an accomplished musician instead of capitalizing on his faults. This book is remarkable at showing the depth to which Elvis sought to understand music. Christians, particularly those who watched some of Elvis' performances, will enjoy reading about the particular songs that had such an impact on Elvis: such as, How Great Thou Art.

If you enjoy Elvis' legacy - you will enjoy this book. If you are a Gospel music fan who enjoys Elvis' legacy - you will LOVE this book.

Armchair Interviews says: Wonderful look at a different Elvis.

Joe is such a wonderful fellow so, I expected a great book. It is lovely, a tribute to his former boss and friend, my hero, Elvis Presley. Thank you, Joe, for all your kindness to Elvis and to us, his fans. You are such a pleasure to know. Your book is beautiful.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Must Read 12. September 2007
Von Linda Robertson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
If you are a true Elvis fan, this is a must read. A fascinating story of not only Elvis' roots in Gospel, but how they meshed with Joe Moscheo's history. This is an intimate story of the man/lover of Gospel music with someone in the Gospel industry. I must admit, though I was fully aware of the fact that the only Grammy Awards Elvis achieved were for his Gospel Albums, when I saw the list of the songs he recorded at the end of the book, I was indeed awed. How glad I am that Joe Moscheo shared his personal memories of what many believe is the real Elvis. Elvis 'knew' and loved Gospel Music and Gospel groups and individual singers. These were his roots that he never left. Indeed that is where he felt most at home. All I can say is thank you Joe Moscheo, for sharing this intimate side of the Elvis that so few knew. I loved this book and return to it again and again.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I really enjoyed Joe's book! 4. Oktober 2007
Von Proud Elvis Fan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I read Joe's book in two sittings and obviously enjoyed it very much. He told some stories I'd not heard before and one of the most enjoyable is about Elvis asking everyone in the suite to bow their heads. When someone looked up he admonished them again to "bow your head". I can picture this scene in my mind and I laughed out loud. Wish I could have been there to witness it! Also, while he is not overly critical of the entourage, he doesn't try to hide his feelings regarding their relationship with Elvis. However, I did notice that a few of the "facts" in the book appear to be incorrect. One item says that when Elvis passed away, Vernon sent Elvis' plane to CA to pick up Priscella AND LISA. As we all know, Lisa was already at Graceland. There are a few other discrepancies and they make me a little wary regarding the accuracy regarding other stories. Overall, I would recommend Joe's book to all Elvis fans. It seems that Joe truly cared about Elvis and tried to do something to help him the the last few years of Elvis' life - if only someone could have convinced him to get the help he needed. I MISS HIM!
