FTD have released Elvis' Legendary second album, 'Elvis'. The original 1956 release quickly outsold the debut album. This 2-disc 7" Classic Album release includes every known outtake from the Labor-Day sessions and the booklet features great photographs taken from the photo session held in February 1956.

CD 2 features the historic live concert from Hirsch Coliseum, Youth Center, Louisiana State Fairgrounds, Shreveport, December 15, 1956. Although a 'Classic Album' release of Elvis' second album is needed from FTD sadly none of the material is unreleased. The original album was featured on the deluxe 'Young Man With The Big Beat' release - as well as the Hirsch Coliseum, December 15, 1956 performance. The 'Rip It Up' outtakes were however not featured on YMWTBB and instead have been spread across various releases.
