Blue Suede Shoes.

(I'm not an Elvis fan but...)

Alfred Wertheimer's images in Elvis at 21: New York to Memphis are an incredible view of Elvis' life that is extremely intimate. It's more than documenting a "star", he's showing us a real person. The images that I could find online from this book weren't any of my favorites although they're still wonderful and I'd highly suggest sitting down in a plush chair and taking a look at the rest of them next time you're in one of those big chain bookstores. This book made me go on a wild search for more of Wertheimer's work. Beautiful images.

I think music history is fascinating.
