BOOK / CD TITLE HOW RCA BROUGHT ELVIS TO EUROPE
(BOOK + UNRELEASED 1956 VINYL EP)
AUTHOR SIGBJORN STABURSVIK AND HANS OTTO ENGVOLD
PUBLISHER FTD BOOKS
COUNTRY DENMARK
RELEASE DATE MARCH 2016
PAGES 432
PRICE $215 (HARDBOUND)
COMMENTS This beautifully designed book contains unseen pictures and includes the earliest international Elvis records including a guide to identify Elvis records from all European countries plus a summary of the earliest releases from each country. There are complete illustrated discographies (including variations) for all Nordic countries: Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland and Iceland. There is also a guide to first pressings of the 47 Elvis EP's released in Germany for sale in Northern Europe.
Elvis'reception in the Nordic countries is covered by a wealth of press cuttings, local film flyers and posters, ads, premiere dates, pictures and stories from handovers of Swedish and Norwegian record awards, and much previously unknown record company history. Among many revelations, the most surprising is perhaps how the Swedish company Electra engineered most of the Elvis activity taking place in Northern Europe.
Spliced in between are many amusing short stories, like when three Nordic Royal Princesses sought out Elvis on the set of G.I. Blues, or how the man behind RCA in Belgium started out smuggling records in the wings of his WW2 Royal Air Force Spitfire. Or the time Norway's bestselling crooner met Elvis in RCA Studios on the day Hound Dog was recorded.
The story behind German Teldec's earliest Elvis releases is completely rewritten along the way, and for record collectors there are many new discoveries like why do records from some countries come with push-out centers while others have large center holes. Or how can it be that up to three different label variants may occur within the same print run. Or why were Europe's earliest 45-singles sold in Sweden only and why did Denmark and Norway, each with tiny populations, issue respectively 46 and 56 different Elvis records?
The book is written by Norwegians Sigbjorn Stabursvik and Hans Otto Engvold , supported by a network of experts from fourteen countries. Stabursvik knows things about records that most people don't, while Engvold is a hound for detail in all things Elvis. Together they bring new insights on practically every page of this excellent book.
In addition this comes with an UNRELEASED 1956 VINYL EP.

Through literally hundreds of photos - many previously unpublished - we get to join Elvis at his show in Detroit on May 25.
