May 25 - From Camden with Love

The classic Diamond Anniversary Release (DAE) import-release "Old Times They Are Not Forgotten" has been re-issued on blue and red vinyl. These edition comes with an addition CD. 

From the press-release:
The first title "Here I Go Again" was a complete sell out and was well recieved by vinyl freaks. To make things not too complicated we have now chosen to release the very first title ever released on DAE “Old Times They Are Not Forgotten”. Obviously it contains the August 30 1976 show. We believe this new updated double album is the best outing of this show till now! And of course the show is included on CD too. This release is very limited and is available in red or blue vinyl presented in a gatefold sleeve. 

The Camden Collection

Released are two import box-sets containing the original "Camden" releases simply entitled "The Camden Collection" volumes 1 and 2.

With these stunning new box sets we are celebrating the unique Camden compilation albums, released in the UK between 1975 and 1986.  Although a product of Pickwick International , licensed from RCA Records, these albums are lovingly referred to as Camdens, simply because of the catalogue numbers and the big capital letters "Camden" on the record and cassette labels. 

Despite often being dismissed by long terms fans when they were originally released, these albums were the first point of call for younger people getting into Elvis' music. The budget prices, added to the eye-catching covers meant these were albums that found their way into many a home that had never owned an Elvis record.  So, for many, there is a fondness for these releases. 

Albums on volume 1: Heartbreak Hotel / The Us Male / The King / Suspicious Minds /Flaming Star / Elvis.
Albums on volume 2: Volume 2: The Rock Hits / It's Now Or Never / Please Don't Stop Loving Me / Are You Lonesome Tonight? / The First Ten Years / The Legend 

The albums are packed in 2 beautiful 'clamshell' box sets: 
  • Each box set contains 6 legendary camden/pickwick albums 
  • Original album packaging has been painstakingly restored (they all look like a miniature version of the original vinyl albums) 
  • Original albums tracks ! 
  • Each box includes a 12 page fully illustrated booklet with 
  • Pictures and insightful commentary 
  • In true "camden" tradition, each box includes a free elvis ( mini ) poster !
