Dee-Dee Da Dee Dee
Listen to the first Sun Records single by Elvis, "Thats Alright". This was the song that captivated Sam Phillips late one night in the studios at the near end of Elvis's first recording session. It was unlike anything he had ever heard. Because it was Rock And Roll. And it was done by Elvis months BEFORE Bill Haley and The Comets recorded Rock Around The Clock.
Galarchuck captures an Elvis far removed from the myths, misunderstandings, and now common apathy. Galarchuck reintroduces the reader to Elvis Aron Presley. Gone are the twelve pound gold belts, diamond encrusted shoes, fried peanut butter and pickle sandwiches, excessive weight and Vegas. In its place is Elvis, too complex and talented to sum up in pithy remarks in a review.
Galarchuk does not put the reader in Elvis's mind or heart as much as he puts you beside Elvis. But you know his fears, ambitions, hopes, dreams, and finally tears as his mother and then all he has worked for is gone.
Read the book and then listen to the music to hear his voice.
