The Legacy Continues

It appears that another Legacy Edition of an Elvis Presley classic is due for re-release from the Music on CD record label. On Amazon the Legacy Edition of Elvis' self-titled debut album appeared, with June 03, 2022 as the release-date.

Description: In the beginning, there was a new singer with an unusual name, Elvis Presley, who beat out the rhythm on an acoustic guitar, a nimble fingered lead guitarist, Scotty Moore, a down to earth drummer, DJ Fontana and a mischievous bass player Bill Black and together they made music that changed popular culture. 

Opening with “Blue Suede Shoes”, the album starts with a power house performance that was to characterize most of the albums that followed. His second album, ‘Elvis’, is an ever stronger collection than the first record. Some of Elvis's best recordings are on this record, including the pleading "Love Me," the gorgeous "First In Line." 

Several legendary singles have been added as bonus tracks, including "Hound Dog" and "Love Me Tender."
