June 17 - Something Blue from '65

Two new releases from the The Netherlands were announced; "Elvis '65" and "Something Blue". 

From the press-release Elvis '65:
1965 celebrated the 10th anniversary of Elvis signing to RCA in November 1955. RCA released an ‘anniversary album’ with contained many , for that time, unreleased tracks and 1 overdubbed SUN recording. The album was titled ‘Elvis For Everyone ‘. “Elvis For Everyone!” was available at different countries around the world like in Italy where it was called “Elvis ´65” with the same track listing. So, the tracklist had nothing to do with Elvis’ 1965 recordings.
This stunning new ‘’ ELVIS ‘65 ‘’ digipack release contains 20 of the best outtakes and alternate versions of Elvis’ 1965 single releases and studio recordings.
