July 8 - A Portrait In Music

The original 1968 German vinyl budget compilation "Elvis A Portrait In Music" was released as an import CD. It´s a shame that RCA never released this album on CD; now it is available with additional bonus tracks and various b-sides from the hit singles (European / US releases), including hard to find outtakes and 2 unreleased  takes, unavailable elsewhere (according to the press-release). 

Also included is a 4 page full color booklet, including the same beautiful center spread that was inclosed in the original LP inner sleeve (promotional shot for "Kissin' Cousins").
