Other Elvis Sites of Interest

Es­ti­mated reading time is 5 min­utes.

HERE ARE LINKS TO A FEW SITES de­voted wholly or par­tially to Elvis. Some are blogs with ar­ti­cles to read, others are out­lets selling records and mem­o­ra­bilia. These sites are here be­cause I like them and I know some of the people run­ning them. (Heck, I even like some of the people run­ning them!)

The title of each site is a hy­per­link to that site; just click on the name and off you will go as if you were wearing Dorothy’s ruby slip­pers. I have di­vided the list­ings into two sub­sets: those that are ac­tu­ally web­sites on the in­ternet and those that are pages on Facebook.
