"Our upcoming release of the ELVIS 1969 Box Set and bonus Photo Folio requires several parties to be involved for the finest possible production. Unfortunately, the first prints we received were simply below our standards, so we are choosing to scrap them and start again.

For that reason the ELVIS 1969 Box Set will be out during the first week of 2014. As always with Gravelroad Music, the fans will get nothing but the best when it comes to Elvis. Stay tuned!"
