Last weekend, the 3rd German Elvis Festival in Rostock took place. The Open Air - event was well organised; and everyone there enjoyed the fun and laughter. All in all, the atmosphere was great! The main attractions for Elvis Fans were the four original Elvis VIPs:

  • Hollywood actrice, Cynthia Pepper, who worked with Elvis in his MGM motion picture "Kissin' Cousins"
  • Ed Bonja, Tourmanager and official photographer for the Elvis Presley Show
  • Dick Grob, chief of the security and member of the Memphis Mafia
  • Sam Thompson, former police officer and bodyguard for Elvis Presley

According to the host, there were over 2120 visitors to the event; and all had the opportunity to buy the latest CD and book releases and souvenirs from the Elvis dealers.

There was a drawing in which everyone got a chance to win products that where sponsored by Praytome Publishing.

The Elvis VIPs were accessible to everyone and had a great time answering fans’ questions and fulfilling requests from autograph seekers. A lot of fans took the day to get their copy of the new Praytome Publishing release, “My Years With Elvis & The Colonel,” signed by Sam Thompson who contributed the foreword for the book.

Dixieland Delight

What is "Dixieland Delight" all about?

Last weekend the new Praytome Publishing book "My Years With Elvis & The Colonel" by author Charles Stone was presented to the Elvisworld. In the back of the book you find information and the very first illustration of the upcoming Multimedia Box Set "Dixieland Delight" by Bud Glass.

This set will soon become a true collector's item and will be manufactured in the well-known quality that Praytome Publishing is famous for. We spared no efforts to make this the definitive package to document the 5 sold out shows in Huntsville, AL in 1975. About 4 years ago, when author Bud Glass came up with the idea for a book / dvd combo about these shows, nobody knew at that time that so much information and pictures would show up. So there was only one way to do it right - to expand the book into a great Multimedia Box Set. It's been a lot of work since then and the closer we get to the day of its release, the more excited the team members of Bud Glass Productions and Praytome Publishing get. As announced previously, the box set consists of 4 different releases and will be released in 4 different steps.

You have to come back to the official website to check for the announcement of the final release date for this set.
