  1. Mike Reddy (Greece) (verified owner)

    Quite honestly, this is a fabulously impressive piece of work. It really is going to stand as the very last word on this subject. The amount of detail here (across 1400 pages!) is just jaw-dropping. It’s written by collectors, for collectors – and it shows. One very big bonus, for me, was all the behind-the-scenes info from some former RCA execs who actually worked on and created many of the releases shown here. That really is a great coup. (There are some really nice ‘inside’ stories.) The whole thing just oozes class. It’s going to be as invaluable as its two predecessors – and that’s a big compliment.
    As for the digital format and software: some may harbour doubts, but really it’s just so easy to use – and I say that as a true technophobe. This really is the future. Plaudits to the authors for showing the way.
    Icing on the cake? A free Cd too! How much better could this get?
    Well done, John. Well done, Gordon. It’s an absolute stunner.

  2. Gregg Geller (USA)

    Gordon Minto and John Townson are to be congratulated and thanked for this truly monumental, encyclopedic achievement. No other body of recorded work has ever been chronicled to this extent to my knowledge but, then, Elvis Presley deserves nothing less. No student of Elvis and his music should be without this. And it’s not every day that one is able to learn new information about one’s own work 35 years after the fact.
