Martin Torgoff begins with the avant-garde worlds of bebop jazz and the emerging Beat writers, who embraced the ng properties of marijuana and other underground drugs. These musicians and writers midwifed the age of marijuana in the 1960s even as Timothy Leary and Richard Alpert (later Ram Dass) discovered the power of LSD, ushering in the psychedelic era. While President John Kennedy proclaimed a New Frontier and NASA journeyed to the moon, millions of young Americans began discovering their own new frontiers on a voyage to inner space.

From the front flap of this 256 page book: "The King lives on in this brilliant collection of new interviews and comment, rare photographs, vintage posters, and more. Includes: 'Complete Elvis A-Z', an updated alphabetical history of Elvis' life, records, movies, books, awards, family, friends, critics: all the important names, dates, and places for a richer knowledge and understanding of the most cherished and controversial rock star ever. [This book] has everything you want to know. Elvis expert Martin Targoff documents every aspect of his life and career from the early Elvis-the-Pelvis uproar to the final days of drugs, destruction, and despair."

If you are a fan of Elvis Presley and don't yet have a copy of this 8 ½ x 11 book compiled and edited by Martin Torgoff and first published in 1982, I would recommend you find a copy. With chapters covering all aspects of his life and death by such as Glenn O'Brien, Stanley Booth, Linda Ray Pratt, John Walker, Karen Moline,, Stephanie Chernikowsky, Gay McRae, Bill Reed, Lenny Kaye, Lester Bangs, and Martin Torgoff, it's probably one of the best ever published. Bar none. Art Director Ed Caraeff also went out of his way to provide numerous photographs, many you simply won't see anywhere else, including beautiful full-page colour plates of Priscilla and newborn Lisa Marie, one with Bill Haley, another with Johnny Cash, a lovely shot of Elvis with his mom and dad, one on stage in the very early days, and several promo shots for his films, along with many others.

A 117-page A to Z thumbnail sketch of his life, music, films, people, places and things appears at the back which itself makes fascinating reading with comments on everyone from Johnny Ace to Muhammed Ali to Davis Zenoff, the Supreme Court judge who performed his marriage to Priscilla. Some examples:

"Pat Boone - Singer and evangelist, and because of his lily-white image, one of Elvis' biggest rivals in 1956. In reality, they were good friends."

"Ed Hopper - The gas station manager Elvis punched on October 18, 1956 in Memphis. Elvis was called into court to give his side of the story (a crowd had formed because of Elvis, which had angered Hopper, who then slapped Elvis). Hopper was fined, Elvis was cleared, and the event was recorded for posterity by the national press." Accompanying this note is a photo of Hopper wearing a beautiful shiner.

What I find invaluable is the inclusion of every song he ever recorded, including the dates and first appearance, whether as a single, or in an E.P.or L.P., and a bibliography of every book/article on his life, up to 1982.

Why this was allowed to go out of print is beyond me.
