Elvis Presley burst on to the US music scene in 1954 with "That's All Right, Mama," his first release, recorded at Sun Studios in Memphis. The record was played an unprecedented 14 times in a row by a local radio DJ, and this marked the beginning of an astonishing career during which he rose to become the most famous rock and roll star in the world. Elvis Presley: Unseen Archives charts the life and achievements of the boy from Tupelo, Mississippi, from his first taste of fame in the early 1950s to his untimely death in 1977. Over 400 fabulous photographs document the important events in his life and career: his early concerts, the movies, his time in the army, his marriage to Priscilla and the birth of his daughter Lisa Marie, the resurgence of his career in the 1970s with the Las Vegas shows, and the gradual decline in his health. The photographs also show how Elvis lives on today, in the hearts and minds of his legions of fans. The pictures are accompanied by informative captions, adding context and depth to his amazing story, and an appendix of facts and figures sets out his remarkable achievements in the music industry.
