please note:

between the mid 1990´s until the early 2010´s many new 

compilations, sometimes with unreleased tracks appeared on 

compact disc but only a few of them were available on vinly. since 

the popularity of vinyl increased during the last  6 years, most of the

"new" cd releases are now available on vinyl again


the memphis record (2lp set)

very nice package focusing on elvis ´ recording sessions at the

american sound studio in 1969. his first memphis session since he left

sun records in 1955. the excellent liner notes were written by peter

love me tender - romantic elvis (2lp set)

for some reasons this double lp wasn´t released on the rca label.

the time) it reached #30 on the german album charts. it also 

performed well in austria and the netherlands.

for the asking (the lost album)

the individual songs on this lp may seem far more familiar than the 

title. everything here did get released in 1963 and 1964, but not the

way it was originally intended. all were recorded in nashville during 

mid-1962 for an album that would have been the follow-up to the pot

luck lp. but elvis' manager, colonel tom parker, apparently decided 

around this time that free-standing albums such as the latter weren't

as profitable as elvis´ movies and their related soundtracks and that

it made more sense to concentrate on soundtracks when it came to 

releasing his music.

the million dollar quartet

"million dollar quartet" is a recording of an impromptu jam session 

involving elvis, jerry lee lewis, carl perkins, and johnny cash made 

on december 4, 1956, at the sun record studios in memphis, 

tennessee. an article about the session was published in the memphis

press-scimitar under the title "million dollar quartet". the recording

was first released in europe in 1981 as the million dollar quartet 

with 17 tracks. a few years later more tracks were discovered. in 

1990, the recordings were released as "elvis presley - the million 

dollar quartet". this session is considered a seminal moment in rock 

and roll history.

die hits der deutschen charts

one more time you´ll find a good album totally ruined by the cover

design. this album was the companion of the tv series "elvis" shown 

in german tv in 1991. it contains most (not all) of the songs charted 

in the german charts until this time. but who in hell came to the idea 

to couple a 1950´s elvis with a 1970´s jumpsuit???

elvis 56

in my opinion one of the most beautiful rca-vinyl releases of all time.
