Fifty four years ago, Elvis Presley helped raised money and directed much-needed attention to the stalled efforts to build the USS Arizona Memorial.
On March 25, 1961, the 26-year-old Presley took the stage to an arena packed with 4,000 frenzied, screaming fans. He performed 15 songs that night ending with a rousing performance of "Hound Dog, which included a slide across the stage on his knees. The concert raised about $54,000, and public and private donations poured in following the show, which received heavy publicity across the country.
'Rock Around The Bloch' is a hardback book containing 288 pages which tells the story of the USS Arizona benefit concert that Elvis performed at the Bloch Arena, Honolulu, Hawaii on March 25, 1961. It includes first-hand accounts from people who were there, newspaper articles from the time and numerous photographs (over 130 of which have never been published before).

*1) The Hawaii concert was first released on a bootleg entitled "Elvis' 1961 Hawaii Benifit Concert" (Golden Archives - GA-200) in 1978, but "Hound Dog" was artificially extended on that release.
The complete, unedited, concert was released officially by RCA in August 1980 on the 8xLP 25th Anniversary box-set "Elvis Aaron Presley".
A remastered version of the concert containing fixing of some microphone drop-outs and in slightly overall better sound quality, can be found on the Memphis Recording Service book/cd package "Such A Night in Pearl Harbor" (MRS 30025361).
Not surprisingly, the overall sound quality on the original tape is not very good at all, but this eclipsed by the fact that these recordings are the only evidence of Elvis singing live, before an audience, between 1957 and 1968.
*2) Tom Moffatt interviews the Colonel, from Hawaii by telephone, who is on the set of "G.I. Blues" in Hollywood. Later on the Colonel calls Elvis to finish the interview with Moffatt.
*3) First release of the full unedited Press Conference and Awards Ceremony.
*4) This is only an except (the conversation about the Hawaii benifit concert) of the four and-a-half minute interview.
