Footsoldiers & Kings

I posted this on the web a while ago and I was surprised how little interest it received.
When I first came across this little book as a teenage rockabilly I was immediately drawn to the cover photo of Elvis slappin' the bass. It didn’t get much cooler than that in my opinion.
I know with the Internet these photos are easy to find, but back in the late 70's and early 80's this kind of stuff was heaven sent. And I dig the fact that I've still got the wee book, the kindle will never replace the feeling of turning a page, not in my lifetime anyway. But you never know.
I've scanned the pages and saved them as jpeg files.


  1. Hi Duke

    You're right, i have bought this one in the early 80's. It was and still is an amazing booklet.

    I'm agree with you when you said that stuff like this, at that time we were waiting for with great pleasure.

    I think it has a vol 2.

    Thanks alot my rockin friend


  2. I heard there was a vol 2, but I never saw it/

    1. Hello from Finland

      If interest, I can scann it and send it.

  3. Hi Jani
    That would be excellent, I've been looking for vol 2 for years.
    Thank you
