Loving You by Elvis Presley
Elvis Aaron Presley was born during the great depression into a poor family in Mississippi. They moved to Memphis during the early '50s, and as a struggling young truck driver, he cut some demos at Sun Studios as a gift for his beloved mother Gladys. These initial songs, of which he had only paid a few dollars to record, would become the catalyst that would kick-start the beginnings of a soon to be worldwide superstar unlike the world has ever known.
Elvis had the unmatchable skill of combining his vocals to resemble both R&B and country. This with the persona and choreography of a Hollywood movie star on stage, the young Elvis Presley was soon touring, and over the year achieved a number of regional hit singles, electrifying audiences into frenzies wherever he performed.
The folks at RCA Victor knew that this young fellow named Elvis was destined for superstardom. They quickly bought out his contract and signed the legend to a long term deal, and his first RCA single "Heartbreak Hotel" forever etched “The King Of Rock And Roll” trademark to his name.
In 1957 after two chart topping albums and a bevy of #1 singles, more incredible fame followed as the Loving You movie starring Elvis Presley became a box office smash. The soundtrack album also was a blockbuster as it topped the charts for over two months, making this his third smash #1 album. Loving You truly proved once again that his career was unlike any other in music history.
Filled with more hits than a jukebox, the Loving You album takes off with two smashes in a row, the classic rocker "Mean Woman Blues" and the chart topping single "(Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear." More soundtrack treasures follow with the beautiful ballad "Loving You" and the rockin’ "Party," which truly made the album a treasure trove of hits that seem like a Greatest Hits collection. The album also features a nice helping of solid interpretations of Elvis’ own favorites like the Fats Domino classic "Blueberry Hill" and the timeless Cole Porter hit "True Love." In total, the album showcases twelve important Elvis Presley recordings which have truly gone on to become international classics.

Vinyl records are able to capture the purest quality of recorded music in true form. This is possible because the initial recording is captured on an analog source (usually tape) for the ultimate in High Fidelity sound, it is then pressed onto virgin vinyl. Analog recordings capture the bottom end (or bass) while adding sweetness to the high end (or treble) better than any digital recording ever could. Analog systems are still commonly used before they are digitally transferred to CD. This means that the sound then is altered in the transfer process when CD's are produced. The word fidelity means accuracy and faithfulness. High Fidelity sound is faithful to the original sound made by the artist, capturing maximum accuracy of what was intended for the listener to hear. Vinyl records capture those sounds for the ultimate High Fidelity listening experience!
180/200 GRAM Vinyl LP
These vinyl records are produced with 180 or 200 grams of high definition premium grade virgin vinyl. This is a higher quality audiophile pressing than the typical vinyl record of 100-120 grams. These limited edition LP's are manufactured with the hi-fi enthusiast in mind. A 180 or 200 gram LP is sometimes also referred to as an audiophile pressing, there is a higher bass response and an even warmer High Fidelity sound. 180 or 200 grams LP's are typically manufactured in limited amounts and are considered collectables, commanding a higher price.
Typically, a vinyl reissue is a repressing of an original LP, usually extracted from the recording's master-tapes. In some cases, reissues are remastered to lower surface noise and improve overall sonics. Reissues help preserve the music of an original recording, especially when original LPs become unavailable or can no longer be found. Reissues can be pressed on a variety of thickness from 150 gram to 200 gram and offer a great opportunity for records collectors to own many classic recordings.
