Comeback '68. | The Story Of The Elvis Special is an in-depth behind the scenes look at the making of the '68 NBC Television Special that put Elvis back on the map, written by director/producer Steve Binder. Filled with never before told stories and classic images, the book offers fresh perspective on who Elvis was as a man and a musician. Binder recounts his tug of war with Elvis' controlling manager Colonel Parker, shares his personal battle with censors, and poignantly writes a buddy story where he ultimately gains Elvis' trust. With a foreword by Priscilla Presley, this 180-page commemorative volume is a must-have for Elvis fans.
Raw. Playful. Uncensored.
When Presley's fans, friends and collaborators think of him now, it's the indelible image of The King decked out in black leather in 1968 ruling his kingdom like the self-proclaimed tiger man he was. - Kory Grow
