Source: Sony Music BMG
July 12, 2007
Each CD will be released in 'mini-vinyl' replica card sleeves with an outer and inner bag. The outer bag will feature the original U.S. picture sleeve artwork, while the inner bag will replicate a generic U.K. RCA single from the time of the original U.K. release.
Each of the 18 CD singles will be limited in copies and individually numbered.
The artwork for the CD disc will replicate the original 7" vinyl release including authentic vinyl label artwork. Rather than have the standard silver finish on the 'playing' side of the disc, each CD rear will have a black finish, again to replicate a miniaturised version and the look of the original vinyl release.
10" Vinyl Single
Each 10" vinyl release will be packaged in the original U.K. RCA generic bag. The 10" label will replicate the original U.K. 7" label artwork. Each of the eighteen 10" vinyl singles will be limited copies and individually numbered.
In addition to the release of the first of the Elvis The King singles on 13th August, Sony BMG Music Entertainment will also release 'Elvis The King: a 2-disc CD companion album.
Thirty years on since Elvis Presley's tragic death, this comprehensive collection of 50 stand out tracks including No.1's from 2005's 18 singles campaign, will remind many that he was the King for a very good reason.
On the first day of the Elvis The King campaign (Monday 13th August, 2007), Sony BMG Music Entertainment will issue 'Heartbreak Hotel' will be accompanied with a numbered CD and 10" collectors' box that will eventually house all 18 singles in the series.

Never before have we seen an Elvis Presley concert from the 1950's with sound. Until Now! The DVD Contains recently discovered unreleased film of Elvis performing 6 songs, including Heartbreak Hotel and Don't Be Cruel, live in Tupelo Mississippi 1956. Included we see a live performance of the elusive Long Tall Sally seen here for the first time ever. + Plus Bonus DVD Audio.
This is an excellent release no fan should be without it.
The 'parade' footage is good to see as it puts you in the right context with color and b&w footage. The interviews of Elvis' Parents are well worth hearing too. The afternoon show footage is wonderful and electrifying : Here is Elvis in his prime rocking and rolling in front of 11.000 people. Highly recommended.
