From the publishers;

Dear Elvis friends, The Elvis Files team is delighted to let you know about a new and very special project we have been working on for quite a while, which will be coming your way very soon!

Entitled Ultimate Elvis – The Complete And Definitive Recording Sessions book, this three-volume, individually numbered, deluxe set (in a beautiful slipcase), not only comprises all the session information available to date, based on Keith Flynn's incomparable website keithflynn.com, but includes comprehensive notes on each session, discographies, reviews of every single, EP and album release, release dates, facsimiles of RCA's paperwork, session logs, listing notices, letters from Colonel Parker's office and RCA's archive, the reproduction of original sheet music covers (courtesy of Chris Giles), a huge index and a host of other things. Of course, as you have come to expect from The Elvis Files, the icing on the cake is a wealth of stunning photographs - approximately 1500 of them! - many of them previously unseen, relating to the time period in question. With major contributions from Erik Lorentzen, Keith Flynn, Gordon Minto, Piers Beagley, Arjan Deelen, Alan Hanson, James V. Roy, as well as many other notable contributors from throughout the world, these volumes, designed by Chris Middleton (Nightrider Design), have an unparalleled pedigree.

We firmly believe that this deluxe set will represent the most exhaustive and lavishly illustrated document to date about Elvis' recorded works. Legendary guitarist James Burton sums it up neatly: 'These are the most beautiful books I have ever seen and the best researched.
