Elvis Aaron Presley was born during the Great Depression into a poor family in Mississippi. They moved to Memphis during the early fifties, and as a struggling young truck driver, he cut some demos at Sun Studios as a gift for his beloved mother Gladys. 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.
Over the next three decades, Elvis Presley would release dozens of hit albums and tons of smash singles, spend time in the Army, star in over 35 top charting films, as well as sell-out concert tours around the states and Canada making him the most successful solo artist of all time. In 1968, after a series of very successful movies and top charting recordings, Elvis made a wise decision to work with the folks at NBC and develop a Christmas TV special, which would have The King perform in front of a live studio audience for the first time in years. This legendary career move spread like wildfire and soon was hailed as “The Comeback,” further igniting his career to an all new high. The King took his shows to the theatres and casinos and supermassive stadium tours over the next number of years, while releasing a plethora of even more gold and platinum recordings
With the soundtrack album nearing release, it was already gaining popularity in advance thanks to the chart single smash If I Can Dream. This masterwork album included a treasure trove of rare television studio performances that captured a very great time in the musical history of this genius. In addition to the wonderful hit single aforementioned, The King reaches back to his early Memphis days with his first chart-topper Heartbreak Hotel and more fifties classics like Lawdy Miss Clawdy, All Shook Up and even a pair of Jimmy Reed blues classics with Big Boss Man and Baby, What You Want Me to Do.
Even more hit tracks and sensational medleys featuring Elvis classics abound including Guitar Man, Blue Christmas, Love Me Tender and Can’t Help Falling in Love. Plus the beautiful ballad Memories is also included which has since become an Elvis fan favorite thanks to the wonderful production on this brilliant album. Elvis Presley’s TV Special album would go on to become one of his biggest albums ever, as fans rushed to the stores to buy this stunning rock and roll soundtrack back in December of 1968.

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 collectibles, 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.
