CD replicas of original singles and EPs from the '50s and '60s have been a hot item in collectors' circles since the latter half of the '90s, yet they remain a rather bewildering item to a wider audience. After all, for listeners who don't fetishize original packaging – the photo sleeves, the shifting logos on the label – it's hard to grasp the purpose of a set that contains 40 songs spread out over 20 discs, as they are on Elvis #1 Singles, a set that rounds up 20 of the King's chart-topping hits and serves them up as two-track CDs, complete with original B-sides and artwork.
This is the definitive collection: all 711 master recordings as released during Elvis’ lifetime, mastered from the original analog master tapes where available. Each recording has been carefully restored to achieve the best sound reproduction ever without compromising the audio quality of the original master. The collection also contains 103 additional rare recordings and a 240-page hardbound book featuring an annotated discography, original album artwork, rare and classic photos, a complete song index and an essay by Peter Guralnick. Housed in a beautiful, limited edition display case, THE COMPLETE ELVIS PRESLEY MASTERS is an indispensable piece of music history and the one collection no true connoisseur should be without.

Looking at a career that had more artistic and commercial triumphs than most in the 20th century, one could be forgiven for thinking that Elvis' run of four shows at Madison Square Garden on June 9-11, 1972 was just another of these big events. But for Elvis, it wasn't. Of all the live concerts released by RCA during Elvis' lifetime, none carried the historical significance of his long-awaited New York City shows at Madison Square Garden in June 1972. Prince From Another Planet takes its title from the New York Times headline that accompanied its rave review of the King's four sold-out shows at MSG. Now, a pair of hour-long performances and a brand-new DVD are finally joined together here for the first time as we pay tribute to the King of Rock 'n' Roll's only NYC concert appearances.

Featuring rare photos and memorabilia, this special 2CD Legacy Edition combines the multi-platinum evening show released as Elvis As Recorded At Madison Square Garden in 1972 with the equally compelling afternoon concert issued in 1997 as An Afternoon In The Garden.
