TITLE THE COMPLETE ITALIAN ELVIS VINYL DISCOGRAPHY
AUTHOR MAURIZIO MAIOTTI & AUGUSTO MORINI
PUBLISHER MAURIZIO MAIOTTI & AUGUSTO MORINI
COUNTRY ITALY
PAGES ALMOST 300 (SOFTBOUND)
PRICE $499.95
COMMENTS - INCREDIBLE approximately 10" x 11" almost 300 pages with FULL COLOR pictures and a gorgeous layout! BEAUTIFUL HIGH QUALITY PAPER, etc etc! It's a MUST for Elvis collectors!
- This long out of print MONSTER of a book without question is the BEST book ever published on any country's individual vinyl releases. Nothing I've seen in 44 years has rivaled it. If you're a collector of worldwide releases on Elvis this is a MUST as it has everything a REAL collector would want - information on ALL label variations, all cover variations, etc etc with pictures IN COLOR of everything! I just wish every country could publish something even close to this for their own vinyl Elvis discography.
- BUT that's not all it contains! It also shows pictures, etc of all Italian 8 tracks; movie lobby cards; magazines, special Italian photos, postcards, video tapes, RCA ITALIANA catalogs, books; all kinds of memorabilia, etc - all from Italy. I have no idea whose collection (s) these came from but it is INCREDIBLY IMPRESSIVE!!!
- Written in both English and Italian!- This is NOT an inexpensive book. And it is heavy
- it probably weighs over 6 pounds because of the incredibly gorgeous and expensive binding, paper, etc and the high postage cost of getting this from Italy. The authors spared no expensive in producing one of the if not THE finest Elvis discographies EVER!! - APPROXIMATELY 750 COPIES PRINTED WHICH WERE MAINLY SOLD OVER THERE!!
- From the author - Maurizio Maiotti: "The first idea for this project was kicked around several years ago while flipping through two catalogues covering Elvis's records issued on the Italian market. They were the works of my good friend of 30 + years Livio Monari and another good friend, the late Carlo Colla. The former had compiled a short and detailed work. Costly color reproductions of record sleeves could be obtained from its author only on demand. On the other hand, Colla's guide was more exhaustive but contained less-than-perfect black and white-only reproductions. Hence the thought to arrange a newer catalogue with color photos of all the artist's Italian vinyl issues, including rare, alternate and special editions. After a revision of the respective record collections, the authors felt sure they could launch the project and started researching for missing discs. As the work progressed, they realized that the project could be extended to other areas where Elvis's name and image had been used - postcard sets, magazines, books and various memorabilia. It took us them feverish years to complete the task. Some 45 record sleeves as well as magazines, RCA promo literature etc., although known to have been released or printed, are still missing and/or couldn't be traced. The end result is this book which may not be the definitive catalogue of Elvis's Italian releases but very nearly so."
- TRUST ME!! You have NEVER EVER EVER SEEN A BOOK like this before regarding a discography of Elvis!! I LOVE IT and you will too!!
- THIS BOOK IS TOTALLY 100% MINT! JUST LIKE IF YOU BOUGHT IT IN 2005!
