"We Remember, Elvis. So many things, feelings, thoughts and the
love shining from your eyes, coming through your beautiful voice and
the sunshine of your smile."
We Remember, Elvis, 2006 new revised edition, contains more than 100
pages of interview with Elvis. by Wanda June Hill. (First released
hardback in 1979)
This is a book about the spiritual Elvis, the inner man who said
he was a human being first, a man second and then an entertainer. He
wasn't a saint, but he tried never to hurt anyone. He wanted more
than anything to bring love, good will and laughter to his many fans
and spent his while life seeking to do just that. He was a man on a
mission, to bring joy and hope and to understand why he was Elvis
Presley. He read thousands of books, seeking to understand the world,
and himself, to find peace and impart blessings from the stage to his
fellow human beings. Besides Wanda June Hill's memories, there are
over 24 other people telling how they met Elvis, each one different
and yet the same Elvis. Included are a few of the letters Wanda June
received after the release of her hardback book in the late 70's
including one from Elvis' father Vernon Presley.
Elvis tells his early days stories in the 100 page interview
section, here you will find the young Elvis remembering his families
early struggles, then something made him do the first recording, to
hear himself so he could do better and then he got his first break,
Sun Records called him in, but he couldn't quite get what the owner
Sam Phillips wanted, but finally one seemed okay and was "tested
locally". He relates the fear he felt when his first recording was
played on local radio, how scared he was when told Dewey Phillips
wanted to interview him on the air. Elvis says he "liked to died" when
Dewey told him he "had a hit record son". He and two fellow musicians
went out and hustled trying to find jobs, to get a name for
themselves, sleeping in the car, going without food to buy gas and
sometimes having to call home for bus fare when the car broke down.
He wasn't yet 19 when his father was driving him back and forth to do
the Louisiana Hayride where Elvis was hired to do commercial jingles,
but he said, he met lots of other entertainers who taught him things,
learn the tricks of the business. He played in clubs and places his
momma didn't want him in, and dutifully went outside to escape "those
kinda women comin' in" but once he didn't make it and met Patsy Cline
who was "doing real well". He was 18, too young for her "so nothin'
happened", but "she sure could sing!"
Elvis reveals his thoughts on his marriage, his wife and child and
how he is dealing with being Elvis Presley. He talks about his health,
what he hopes for the future, that he loves performing. "It's my
life." He relates army days, meeting his future wife and talks about
his love for America and it's people.
Here is the real Elvis, the guy behind the image, behind the crown
that he said is not his, but Jesus, the Christ's and he as a mortal
man, is not fit to wear the crown of a king. Elvis spoke of writing
his own book in '77-here he almost does just that. A MUST READ!
