Elvis Presley - The King And Colonel Parker

From Trailer Park To Graceland.

This summer, the new film „Elvis“ will be released in cinemas. An event that fans worldwide have been eagerly awaiting since the project was first announced in 2014. The film tells the fairytale story of the young Elvis Presley, who rises from bitterly poor circumstances to become the superstar of the 20th century. At the center is the relationship between Elvis and his manager Colonel Tom Parker, played by Oscar winner Tom Hanks. This toxic but most successful partnership in music history also sets the stage for the album The King And Colonel Parker. It includes Elvis‘ first songs from Sun Records and all the big hits, of the King‘s first career, after Colonel Tom Parker had negotiated a gigantic contract with the RCA label and Elvis was bought out of his ongoing contract. Colonel Parker was also the first music manager to have the idea of marketing singles specifically through motion pictures. So Love Me Tender as a single for the first Elvis movie of the same name became not only one of the biggest successes and evergreens, but also the blueprint for Elvis‘ career.  The Colonel was also a pioneer in merchandise. Even in the young King‘s first year of success (1956), an incredible 22 million dollars was earned with Elvis merchandise.
