"Love Me Tender" (2-CD)
This 2-disc 7” set celebrates Elvis’ first motion picture LOVE ME TENDER from 1956. Elvis first performed ‘Love Me Tender’ on the Ed Sullivan Show (September 9) and pre-sales reached over 1 million before its release on September 28. It features a 16-page booklet with great photos, movie trivia, memorabilia and full recording data. Disc 2 features the legendary live show from the Mississippi Alabama State Fair and Dairy Show held in Tupelo on September 26.
"Stay Away, Joe" (2-LP Vinyl)
For the first time since "Wild in the Country," neither an LP album nor an extended play single was planned for "Stay Away, Joe." Although released before "Speedway," this film and its soundtrack were made after the first of Elvis' last five films in the 1960s where musical numbers were kept to a minimum. The recording session took place at RCA Studio B in in Nashville, Tennessee, on October 1, 1967. This limited-edition vinyl set is pressed in 180 gram.
