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.
This is a posed photo of Elvis from 1956.
