In 1992, we produced our first edition of this book titled "Hawaiian Spirit." My feeling then, as it is now, was that Elvis Presley believed in the true spirit of Hawaii and it really showed in this performance which was tele-vised live via satellite around the world. Elvis loved the excitement that Hawaii brought forth, and when he left the stage after completing a near perfect performance, it was obvious that he was delighted with the out-come. Could he have been remembering those early trail blazing perfor-mances back in 1954, singing in high school gymnasiums or on the back of a flat bed truck, as he stood on stage in front of a worldwide audience of an eventual 1.5 billion people? As we celebrate the 25th anniversary of the show, the opening song on the enclosed CD seems to have a more mean-ingful title: "Welcome To My World." Back in 1973, it certainly was his.
