The Rocker Strikes Again - Elvis Presley's Greatest Rock and Roll 

Released by an unknown label is the CD “The Rocker Strikes Again - Elvis Presley's Greatest Rock and Roll”. 

From the press-release:

Do you remember? Back in the 1980’s two fantastic rock and roll compilation albums were releases by RCA: “Rocker” (1985) and  “Return Of The Rocker” (1986). The albums were a huge success and a follow up, a third volume was already planned, including a full track listing but....for unknown reasons it was never released by RCA.

Now, 28 years after volume two here  is the final edition in this series: "The Rocker Strikes Again!" As with volumes 1 and 2 a stunning shot of Elvis on the motorbike is on the front cover. A beautiful 4 page full colour booklet housed in a plain white jewelcase, volume 3 contains 22 of the greatest rock and roll tracks released between 1964 – 1976. Masters, undubbed masters, live recordings and alternate takes… it’s all here for the perfect rock and roll album! So finally you have the change to complete your Rocker collection. Limited Edition only!
