Now, the definition of what an original album is on Elvis becomes tricky because there's been so many collections and compilations of things that were released during his lifetime, and of course, a gazillion since then. What we decided to do was hone it down to what would be considered a new album with some new material on it that was released during his lifetime -- the first place that a song appeared on a long playing record while he was alive', Jackson said ...

The Flip Side : Elvis Presley: The RCA Album Collection 60 CD Box Set

'The Album Collection' is now in stock and we have begun the rather large job of packing and sending out orders. (Should be completed by Friday). This is a delightful work from Sony, and to give you a different take on the set, and what very much caught our eye was the original back cover art that we do not get even with the FTD Classic album releases. A really nice, original touch. The original album packaging has been painstakingly restored including gatefold/die cut sleeves, original RCA Victor inserts, stickers and more. And the CD labels replicate original side 1 labels. This should be a center-piece in every home be it in playing the albums, or simply making a statement with its very presence!!!!
