Andrew Hearn i personally don't trust the guy. I sent him a tape back in the 90s and it got bootlegged and sold very well at the time

Saying things had been sent when they hadn't, yes.
Also a friend of mine the same.
Ignoring emails too.

I was a member a few years ago and had no problems with getting each magazine but I never ordered any cds,books and so on.
However I have heard that the magazine in the later years have run into finance problems...no idea if its true or not.
Shame you guys have issues....I was very happy with the mag but decided to close all subcriptions....EE was one of many.

I'm a subscriber . Seems like there hasn't been an issue in a while . Beautiful looking and bound magazine.
Still, Elvis The Man And His Music is still far and away my favorite . Published like clockwork , on time, every three months and loaded with good articles . I don't know how they do it after all of these years .

It was Auld Lang Syne 76 CDs
I still have the original mint first pressing vinyl that i used to transfer it onto to tape.
This was all done in a recording studio. plus I have the original tape i only gave him a tape copy.
He made a good bit of money on that one. of course if he is asked he will deny it thats the type of guy he is.

It wasnt a crap magazine when I subcribed to it a few years ago...in fact in many ways they were just as good as TMAHM as they have interviewed
(often exclusively) a lots of people in the Elvis world.
They also had a great series of articles where they visited well known Elvis related places with before&now pictures,like the karate studio in memphis that the karate footage was filmed in 1974....very cool article with now&then pictures....it was abanded now if I remember correct but the Pepsi vending machine was still there....as seen in TIE :)
But TMAHM is 100 times better when it comes to cd reviews....great details and knowledge regarding the content on each cd reviewed.
