about

Return Of The Kingtells the story of a tumultuous period in the life of Elvis Presley. By 1967, The King Of Rock 'n' Roll was all but washed-up, thanks to a string of bland movie roles and lackluster records. But within a year he had roused himself, loosened the creative shackles imposed by his grasping manager, 'Colonel' Tom Parker, and reconnected with the rock audience through a riveting TV special. There followed a glorious but all too brief artistic flowering, in which he made some of his most enduring records, including 'Suspicious Minds' and 'In The Ghetto.'
