Elvis : Rockin 'N' Nassau : Elvis Book
The Elvis photos are black and white and they are a fitting visual record of Elvis Presley before his live performance slide. His striking good looks are well displayed, marred only slightly by some weight gain and a developing double chin. Surprisingly, most of the quality photographs dominating 'Elvis Rock 'n' Nassau' were not taken by a professional photographer. They were snapped by a fan, Carole Mason. Ms Mason is to be congratulated for a job well done, and one that a professional photographer would have been proud of. Sure, there are a few blurry shots, but overall it is a great visual archive.
However, above all, the photos of Elvis Presley are the focal point and they tell the story. A playful smile, a poignant look, Elvis with arms flailing, knees bent, body cocked! The King is 'in the groove', enjoying himself, and so are 16,000 ecstatic fans.
Rockin' Nassau also includes reproductions of both reviews of the concert and concert tickets.
JAT Publishing is renowned for releasing quality photo-books. 'Elvis : Rock 'n' Nassau' reinforces that reputation.
