The definitive story of Elvis's recording career -- filled with unseen photos and unexpected revelation

In the last decade, the image of Elvis Presley has been changed forever -- spurred in part by a major CD reissue campaign covering Presley's entire recording career. Once merely a subject of scandal, Elvis Presley is coming back into focus for what he was: the greatest performer of our time.

Elvis Presley: A Life in Music completes the picture. Ernst Jorgensen -- the man behind RCA's reissue program -- has been given unlimited access to the Presley recording vaults, and with this book he puts us in the studio for every late-night session of his 24-year career. Far more than a recording-sessions guide, A Life in Music reveals -- in an in-depth narrative and hundreds of photographs -- a figure far savvier and more complex than we've known: instinctive musician, driven perfectionist, a one-man industry brought down by the very system built to support him. The most complete picture we've ever had of Elvis Presley the artist, this book is a musical landmark.
