There Is More Elvis Presley On The Way

Since his death in 1977, RCA has repackaged and mined the vaults for the music of Elvis Presley in every conceivable combination.

On July 28, they will head back again for A Boy From Tupelo – The Complete 1953-1955 Recordings which is being billed as the “most comprehensive collection of early Elvis recordings ever assembled”.

Included is every known Elvis Presley Sun Records master and outtake, plus the Memphis Recording Service Acetates (My Happiness/That’s When Your Heartaches Begin (recorded July 1953) and I’ll Never Stand in Your Way/It Wouldn’t Be the Same (Without You) (recorded January 4, 1954)), the four songs Elvis paid his own money to record before signing with Sun.

Also part of the 3-CD package is every known live performance and radio program from that period that are known to exist.

Produced by Ernest Mikael Jorgensen, over 1,500 hours of restoration work was spent on the original tapes along with almost 200 hours of additional studio time to bring the recordings to the highest possible quality.

A 120-page book is also in the package, formatted as an illustrated travelogue and datebook chronicling the genesis of Elvis’ early career via facts, anecdotes, memorabilia and many rare photos. Independence Day 1954 is when this unique American saga begins, less than 24 hours before his first professional recording session, and it ends in December 1955, when the singer leaves Sun Records to record for RCA. The material is organized by calendar entries. During the months July through October 1954, the majority of the calendar is empty, as Elvis had his daytime job with Crown Electric, and music making was confined to the weekends and evening hours. This is Elvis Presley before he becomes world-famous, and an account of how this amazing young man readies himself for stardom, a young man on the pinnacle of an unprecedented level of success.

On the same day, a single vinyl edition, A Boy From Tupelo: The Sun Masters, will be released with all of Elvis’ A and B sides for Sun Records and additional songs recorded in Memphis.
