April 17 - The King Released In The Ring (Updated April 18)

Sony Music have released the "Elvis Presley, The King In The Ring" double LP set exclusively for Record Store Day 2018.  These record sets are Individually Numbered on Red opaque colored Vinyl for the first time. (Previously released as "Tiger Man" on CD).

Synopsis:
Elvis Presley re-established himself as The King of Rock and Roll with ELVIS, the widely-seen 'comeback special' broadcast on NBC at the end of 1968. The show's many highlights included laid-back live performances recorded in the round before a small audience and featuring a powerful ensemble - including guitarist Scotty Moore and drummer D.J. Fontana, both part of Elvis' original, classic backing band. 
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of ELVIS, both electrifying, intimate 'sit-down' sets will be released on vinyl for the first time in an individually numbered 2LP package with a newly created gatefold sleeve, pressed on red vinyl. 

The history of Presley's amazing 'comeback special' is told in Elvis Presley: The Searcher, the new documentary that premiered April 14, 2018 on HBO.
