* * *   Reviewed by Melissa Parcel

A friend of Elvis Presley since they met in music class in 1948, George Klein has lovingly assembled an album of photos to share some of the intimate times of Elvis's life. With the rich feeling of a personal family photo album, this book will be treasured by Elvis fans as a glimpse into parts of his life that we don't often see.

Chapter One chronicles the early years. Each photo is either labeled with a caption or includes a longer anecdote about that particular time in Elvis's life. The following chapters offer: Music Notes, Hollywood, and A House Fit for a King: Graceland. The photos are fascinating and the captions make them come alive.

These aren't publicity photos for the most part, but rather snapshots taken by friends and family and compiled together in an album. Here is Elvis in his most natural and open state, whether in front of a crowd or behind the scenes at home. Elvis Presley: The Family Album would make an excellent gift for Elvis fans and those wanting to get a better understanding of the man behind the legend.
