Author and producer Michael Rose has assembled a stunning glimpse of Elvis' life in 1956. Through hundreds of photos, many previously unpublished, you get to join Elvis at his show in Detroit on May 25. Then, stay along for the tour for two more days in Columbus and Dayton, before you finally arrive in Memphis on May 28. Rose has interviewed people who attended the shows, found original newspaper coverage, chosen and organized the many photos, and arranged it all as a fascinating travel log. This is the Elvis that country legend Bob Wills aptly described as a "punk" before controversy and Hollywood toned him down. The perfect companion to the new box set "Young Man With The Big Beat" (a few of the photos in the box set, including the front, actually comes from this book).
