Product details

INCLUDES 2 BONUS TRACKS

This special vinyl edition contains one of Elvis Presley's harder-to-find albums, Elvis Presley Rocks. It's a valued item for serious collectors, as it was only released on the RCA label in South Africa in the late 1950s (probably 1958) and has been long unavailable on any format. The front cover is derived from the 1957 EP entitled Just For You, and the songs seem to be taken from EPs and singles from that period. Most of these tracks were also included in other seminal Elvis compilations, like For LP Fans Only, 50,000 Elvis Fans Can't Be Wrong, and A Date with Elvis, which were all issued in 1959. The back cover of the album contains an interesting photo of Elvis in his army days, and his autograph printed with the words “Best Wishes Elvis Presley.” This particular image was never published anywhere else before this LP.
