Flashback provides an insightful look at the 30 months when Elvis truly reigned as "The King Of Rock 'n' Roll". With 285 classic, rare and previously unpublished photos and 69 minutes of previously unreleased music, "Flashback" is a unique journey from January 1956 through June 1958. 172 pages + CD.

Flashback is a fantastic package, one of the very best! The book illustrates Elvis' transition from the Hillbilly Cat to the King of Rock and Roll who dominated the charts before being drafted into the army. It is divided into different chapters, with photos of Elvis in private, on movie sets, in the recording studio and on stage. The mostly black and white images are presented following a short text outlining the contents of each chapter and include many highlights. Although a handful of pictures are grainy, overall most photos are clear and well presented, including a few colour shots as well. Long-time fans will get tremendous pleasure browsing through the unreleased pictures from various recording sessions and hearing the out-takes from them.

Elvis arived in Miami on August 3, 1956 for a few weeks of touring before heading to Los Angeles. over two days, Elvis managed 7 shows at the Olympic Theater and as the year before in Florida he performed amidst scenes of rioting fans leaving one show with his pants completly torn (pictured right).

The accompanying CD is excellent and of the same high standard as previous FTD CD releases. The tracks on the CD are the basis of Elvis' spectacular rise to fame. Alternate takes of rockers like "Lawdy, Miss Clawdy", "Shake, Rattle And Roll", "Rip It Up" and especially "A Big Hunk O' Love", are combined with ballads such as "I Was The One", "I Want You, I Need You, I Love You", and "Young And Beautiful". The three takes of "Treat Me Nice" sound quite unlike the master and is one of the standout tracks.

Flashback is highly recommended given the generous amount of previously unreleased material. Thank you to the FTD team for producing an audiovisual documentary any Elvis fan would be proud to own.

This book is the same size as the FTD book The Way It Was (96 pages) but with more pages (Heavy).
