Elvis - The Number Ones : The Stories Behind the Classics Paperback


Where exactly was Heartbreak Hotel? Why was Number 33 the cutest little jailbird I ever did see, and how were the Mafia involved in Can't Help Falling In Love?

These and many more intriguing questions are answered by renowned rock historian and critic Patrick Humphries in this, the first and only book to tell the stories behind all of the King's Number 1 hits.

From Heartbreak Hotel in January 1956 through to Way Down in October 1976, EP1 charts the magnificent rise and career of Elvis Presley, the greatest rock and roll singer to have lived.

Thirty years of Number 1 songs are described, explained and illustrated with fantastic photographs, unique illustrations and the single sleeves.

An invaluable companion for every Elvis fan, Elvis - The Number Ones also contains tributes from a galaxy of famous stars, among them Robbie Williams and Bruce Springsteen, plus an a range of fascinating things you never knew about The King
