A dazzling photo array of memorabilia will illustrate each day and entry. Concert ticket stubs, RCA memoranda, letters from fans, postcards from Elvis to his family, tour itineraries,
magazine covers and articles, trade charts, fan club relics, RCA publicity photos, concert photos, candid photos
, and more will be a feast for the eyes and the imagination as 1956
unfolds.  The book was assembled by Elvis expert Roger Semon.

YOUNG MAN WITH THE BIG BEAT will also include:
Five rare 8x10 photographs (suitable for framing)
Five original-size poster replicas
A replica concert ticket stub.  

YOUNG MAN WITH THE BIG BEAT was produced for reissue by Ernst Mikael Jorgensen, the respected director of RCA's Elvis catalog for over two decades.  Jorgensen is also the
author of the essential research guide, Elvis Presley: A Life In Music (St. Martin's Press, 1998).  He recently completed The Complete Elvis Presley Masters, the 27-CD crown jewel in
RCA/Legacy's Elvis 75 campaign of 2010-2011.  That set contains all 711 master recordings released during Elvis' lifetime, housed in a 12-inch square presentation case which
includes a coffee table-style book.

After nearly a year and a half of studio recording and singles releases on Sun Records of Memphis, Elvis Presley's recording contract was sold to RCA Records on November 21,
1955.  Elvis arrived at RCA Studios in Nashville on January 10, 1956, with his band, guitarist Scotty Moore, bassist Bill Black, and D.J. Fontana on drums.  It was the beginning of an
odyssey that would not only transform the lives of Elvis and his buddies, but would also reshape the face of popular music, entertainment television, radio, concert promotion, movie
production and more in America and around the world.  

Buddy Holly: "Without Elvis none of us could have made it."

Scotty Moore: "He had so much energy we had to sit up nights to wear him out so that we could go to sleep."

John Lennon: "My crushing ambition in life was to be like Elvis Presley."

Bruce Springsteen: "My mother was watching the Ed Sullivan Show and Elvis came on. I went out and bought a guitar straight away..."

James Brown: "Elvis taught white America to get down."

From the master takes recorded at those January 10th sessions, "Heartbreak Hotel" (inducted into the Grammy® Hall Of Fame) and "I Was the One," to the Million Dollar Quartet jam
session back home in Memphis on December 4th, it was a year in music that will never be equaled.
