The New Order News from the home front: I have finally recovered from the flu.
So how good is the new CMT series? Nigel found the show had a vibrant fifties feel with strong characters, dramatic thought provoking moments, wonderful doses of humor, great music, and several adult situations It was with immense sadness that last month EIN had to report on the death of our great friend - and a true friend to Elvis - Marty Lacker.
We will miss him dearly. He was known for both his honesty and being forthright with his opinions. He was the only member of the Memphis Mafia who still watched and commented on recent Elvis News. Have EPE lost the plot completely?: To capitalise on this new chart success EPE have planned a worldwide tour featuring "Elvis" on stage backed by a piece orchestra.
The new "Elvis with the R. O" tour is bound to do the same. However EPE has decided to save money by apparently using local "Pick-up" orchestras instead. And please send us YOUR comments to be included in the debate.
It is amazing that almost 40 years after his death, Elvis Presley is still getting fully-deserved standing ovations at packed arenas.
Once again the new Elvis shows have such an impact that reviews note, "So realistic fans felt Elvis really was in the building! Some would argue that the first album in did this, but actually there was relatively little backlash against it or Elvis in the press prior to the second Milton Berle appearance.
These events make for great stories, have been often repeated, and only add to the legend of the boy from Tupelo taking on the establishment and coming out with 1 album.
But are they really true? Composer Otis Blackwell liked to boast that he could write a song about anything. Elvis spent quite some time on the Hawaiian island of Kauai vacationing, and filming Blue Hawaii - in fact the last 20 minutes of the movie was shot on and near the grounds of the Coco Palms resort.
Who was Norman Taurog? Even in Starmaker, the memoirs of Hal B. Wallis, for whom Taurog produced six Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis movies and three Presley flicks, he seems a bit player.
Sounding unlike anything Elvis had recorded previously, drowned in echo and with a melancholic voodoo-sounding tale of suicide and loneliness, the song was also unlike anything in the pop charts of the day.
How strange that this moody, dark tale of alienation was recorded in the building RCA shared with the Methodist TV and Film commission! Sun producer Sam Phillips called the song a "morbid mess" while Glenn Reeves, the singer who cut the demo, insisted that his name was kept off the demo as it was the "silliest title" he had ever heard.
The publicity for the "new" Elvis album is ramping up, which is good to see. Yesterday EIN asked its readers what were their opinions so far about the new album to be released at the end of this week.
Nor can we possibly believe that these songs with new overdubs are, "What Elvis would have loved to have had" as Priscilla tells everyone on her publicity trail. The original tracks are perfect, just the way they are! The new arrangements are terrific and exciting as well as creative - especially Burning Love!!
They have absolutely destroyed "Burning Love". This was about as stupid as painting a mustache on the "Mona Lisa". We also hope the album is a big success but maybe we are the wrong target-market since we know the originals so very well.The FIFA World Cup was the 21st FIFA World Cup, an international football tournament contested by the men's national teams of the member associations of FIFA once every four years.
It took place in Russia from 14 June to 15 July It was the first World Cup to be held in Eastern Europe, and the 11th time that it had been held in Europe.
