Elvis Presley / Platinum: A Life in Music 4CD set reissued and repackaged

Sony will repackage and reissue their 1997 Elvis Presley compilation Platinum: A Life In Music, this March.

This fine set four-disc set was originally issued 20 years after Elvis’ death and presents an alternative look at The King‘s entire career via alternate takes and unreleased material (such as homemade recordings and demos).

When this was first put out it contained 77 previously unreleased tracks and was considerably more expensive than this new compact ‘bookset’ style reissue, which will be consistent with some of the previous reissues (Young Man With The Big Beat).

Platinum: A Life In Music will be released on 24 March 2017.

    Wow what a coincidence, I was thinking about whether Sony were going to reissue this just last night, amazing that they now are! A great set, love this book-style reissues.

  2. Paul W says:

    Thanks paul just put my order in for Elvis

  3. Robert Fitzpatrick says:

    Too bad its not remastered !

  4. Mylene says:

    This was the Presley organisation’s answer to The Beatles Anthology and …. it works. One of the best box sets ever. Disc 4 is easily RCA/BMG/Sony’s best attempt at a 70s Elvis compilation. There’s much more OMG moments here than in the previous three boxes.

  5. elliott buckingham says:

    prefer his rock/pop stuff too much gospel and bad covers on this set for me. would like a reissue of the 40 greatest hits that was released on arcade records

  6. Paul W says:

    Elvis price has gone down to 18 pound

  7. Larry Ward says:

    Oh great! I just purchased the original boxset on ebay a couple of weeks ago. I assumed that since it was a cut-out that Sony/Legacy wouldn’t bother re-issuing it. Makes me wonder if there are any plans to reissue the Elvis Aron Presley silver and gold boxsets, or any of the other 50’s, 60’s and seventies boxsets originally issued in the nineties by RCA? While I’m on the subject, it sure would be swell if Sony/Legacy would reissue Elvis- The Complete Masters thirty cd boxset at a more reasonable price rather that the ridiculous $750.00 original price tag here in the states.

    I love Elvis more than any other entertainer but I am not sure about the never ending issue of in effect greatest hits sets.A look on amazon ant there are literally thousands of differen albums nearly all having the same content.
