March 14 - A Legacy From Memphis

The Legacy Edition of the classic "Elvis Recorded Live on Stage in Memphis" was released.

From the press-release:
Elvis Recorded Live On Stage In Memphis presents one of the most legendary performers of all time in his home town of Memphis where it all began. Not only does this 2CD Legacy Edition set feature tracks not included on the original album, it also features previously unreleased material and a 24 page booklet with rare photos, previously unseen memorabilia, new liner notes, press clips and more.

His attention to detail and showmanship is very evident on this release as Disc 2 shows him performing hits such as “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” and “Softly As I Leave You” for an upcoming Las Vegas engagement in preparation. Furthermore, the entire recording is actually a full scale live recording “test run” in front of a live audience in preparation for his historic concert return to Memphis, where he’d last played live in 1957.

The remarkable performance was recorded in MONO, drenched in the reverb Elvis preferred, and provides new insight into the magic of Elvis. This specially remastered release is available from 17th March 2014, exactly 40 years since the original performance was recorded.


The album "The Nation's Favourite Elvis Songs" climbed from #149 to #113 on last week's UK Album Chart.

The "Elvis 30 No.1 Hits" re-enters the UK Album Chart at #162 for week-ending 16th March, 2014.
