November 16 - Released

The Memphis Recording Service released the 2 CD / book set “Memphis Recording Service: The Complete Works 1953-1955”. The 100-page book chronicles Elvis' short recording career there, from its humble beginnings (his personal acetate recordings from July 1953 and January 1954) through to the final Sun sessions in 1955. The full and comprehensive text is complemented by rare photographs and unseen pieces of documentation. 

The 2CD's contain the complete archival studio recordings from 1953-1955: Elvis' personal acetates, the Sun masters, along with rare session outtakes. The tracks have been painstakingly remastered and restored. There are many highlights on this new release. All of the newly remastered tracks now sound much clearer and crisper. Indeed, all previous erroneous mastering faults and miscalculations have been rectified on this release, making it the best collection thus far.


The French VPI label announced their December 2016 releases in their Elvis Presley “The Signature Collection”. The final titles are “Gospel”, “SUN”, “Country” and “Noel”.

Each title is limited to 500 units numbered and remastered for optimal listening.
