America The Beautiful is a high quality Elvis Presley Photo Book, nicely split into sections with color and b/w visuals neatly highlighting each one. The well-designed sections include Colonel Tom Parker, the Hollywood years, the Madison Square Garden concerts and Elvis, Priscilla and Lisa.
The CD is also worth getting as all of the songs have been newly mastered so the sound is the best possible!
Special Message From JAT: 'As I was putting together the final touches on my new book / CD - ELVIS: AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL, a project I was working on since June (permission for the CD was granted in July) tragedy struck the world with the terrible news for all of us of the World Trade Center disaster. I think it's important for people to know that this project was conceived in Feb of this year (2001) and obviously it had absolutely NOTHING to do with happened in September. The idea for the book / CD was planned to be a tribute to Elvis and his love for America as well as a tribute to RCA records. I hope everyone will enjoy this'.
