The Elvis Presley Collection Vol. 1-3 / Elvis Blue (Import news)

The Elvis Presley Collection Vol. 1-3 / Elvis Blue (Import news)

Out now on silver pressed CD ( not CD-R !! ) in beautiful sealed cardsleeves, a great collection of classic Camden / RCA albums.
From 1968 to 1975, RCA Camden issued a series of compilation albums. This output primarily consisted of repackaging of Presley's 1960s-era movie soundtrack recordings.
These albums were very successful, due to the low budget price and the great gatefold album sleeves.
For many ( young ) fans these albums were their introduction to the music of Elvis Presley. Although these albums did not always contained the very best of Elvis’ recordings,
the Camden albums taught many customers one valuable lesson: you may find gold, when you least expect it !

‘’ THE ELVIS PRESLEY COLLECTION’’  contained 3 volumes. These albums are among the best known Camden releases.
And finally, if only for nostalgic reasons, they are released on shiny silver CD.
Looking like miniature vinyl albums, these releases will bring back many of the happy memories from the good ol’ days.
They come sealed and include some special bonus tracks.
