Elvis Presley / The Album Collection career-spanning 60CD box set

elvis_complete

In March this year, Sony Music’s catalog division, Legacy Recordings will release The Album Collection, a limited edition 60CD Elvis Presley box set commemorating the 60th Anniversary of the release of Elvis Presley, The King’s first album for RCA…

This set is similar, but more lavish, than the acclaimed Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash boxes issued in the last few years and comprises 57 Elvis albums originally released on RCA from 1956-1977 as well as three new discs of rarities from the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s respectively.

Of course, many of Elvis’s long-players have been expanded and repackaged for Legacy Editions, themed box sets and the like over the years, but his 57 original LPs – studio and live albums, compilations of non-album singles, film soundtracks, and even budget albums with hard-to-find material – have been reissued only sparingly during the digital era. The Album Collection presents – for the first time, in many cases – Elvis’s official, original albums as they were first released.

Legacy Recordings have promised fans that original album packaging has been “meticulously restored” for each of the discs included in with details including gatefold/die cut sleeves, original RCA Victor inserts and stickers, CD labels replicating original ‘side 1′ labels and more.

This collector’s box also includes a 300-page fully illustrated hard cover book featuring a commentary penned by Elvis Presley scholar John Jackson, discographies and recording session details (dates, locations, personnel, etc.) and more.

In addition to the 57 albums, this box set features three bonus CDs of rare tracks – new compilations, with each volume devoted to one of the decades; the 1950s, the 1960s and the 1970s.

Elvis Presley – The Album Collection 60CD box set is released on 18 March 2016.

57 responses to Elvis Presley / The Album Collection career-spanning 60CD box set

  1. BritinDetroit says:

    OK, what am I missing ? this shoots in at a modest 220 pounds +/- while the box sets 20 original albums and 20 perfect sound tracks can be had from amazon UK for about 57 quid combined. So its about 163 pounds extra for 20 additional albums and a book ?

    Not feeling very Elvisy for this

    • Scott says:

      I think the big difference (and for many the appeal) with this set is all the detail around the reproduced “mini-albums” with all the gatefolds, die cuts, inserts, sleeves, stickers, labels, etc. from the original releases.

      I have both of “20 Original Albums/Soundtracks” sets and the repro album sleeves used on those are very bare bones and kinda lame. The CD artwork is also very generic on the discs themselves. The plus side on those sets is that many of those discs have bonus tracks which most of the discs in this new collection do not.

      So, if your main concern is just the musical content, then the “20” boxes are by far the best deal. You can probably fill in the remaining albums/tracks individually and still come out ahead.

      If the nostalgia of the whole “experience” of the covers, labels, etc. is important to you, that is what you’re paying a premium for with the new set. (As well as the consistency in having everything matching and in one place.)

  2. Jon C says:

    I’m curious as to how it compares to 2010’s Complete Masters box:

    http://amzn.com/B004WP4ZQO

    I know that one came and went super quick and it’s out of print now, but I remember it costing a ridiculous amount of money. This one is still expensive, but looks to be much more affordable.

    [Also: Thankfully both omit “Having Fun with Elvis On Stage”, which has to be the winner of the Most Shameless Cash Grab Award. ;) ]

  3. Ben Williams says:

    Lovely looking set but pricey on Amazon UK, considering you can get the two ‘Perfect Album Collections’ for around £25 each, as well as the Complete 50s Masters and 60s Studio Masters I for £13 (or thereabouts) each.. Maybe if this was £120 I would take the dive but too costly for now.. But a lovely set like I said!

  4. Marcel says:

    I’d love to buy this, but alas I can’t listen to Elvis for much more than a few tracks.

  5. Scott says:

    If you zoom in on the picture of the open box, the book is opened up to the track listing for “From Elvis In Memphis” and it lists bonus tracks. I wonder if all the discs contain bonus tracks (or at least the ones that have been released previously with bonus tracks).

    I’m really excited about this release, although I wish it were at tad bit cheaper (but less than $6 a disc is still a really great deal).

  6. Jimmy Holcomb says:

    You’d think they would have included The Sun Sessions…..hopefully, for that much money, they’re on the 50s rarities disc.

    • Scott says:

      It looks like all the Sun recordings are present, just not lumped together.

      Some of the Sun recordings appeared on “Elvis Presley” (5 tracks), “For LP Fans Only” (4 tracks), “A Date With Elvis” (5 tracks) and “Elvis for Everyone” (1 track). So, that’s 15 of 24 Sun tracks on the main albums.

      A quick glance at the track listing, Sun bonus tracks are included on “For LP Fans Only” (1 track), “A Date With Elvis” (1 track) and then 7 on the 50s Rarities disc. So, that would be the remaining 9.

  7. johnny says:

    jpc.de were offering this for just £108 delivered, this morning…I ordered one…..I sent you a message on the Get in Touch section

    Looks like they’ve cottoned on now, but worth watching in case they offer it again

  8. Billy Dojcak says:

    Never been an Elvis fan. By the time I knew who he was he was on his way to being fat, Vegas Elvis. If I had to listen it would be the Sun years. This box is nothing but another cash grab.

  9. ed says:

    I hope you didn’t have to type out 60 cds worth of tracklistings….

  10. Scott says:

    Just noticed something else confusing in this press release. Is it 60 discs or is it really 62 discs? In the listing of the included albums, for “Album 36″ (“From Memphis to Vegas/From Vegas to Memphis”) it says “2 discs” yet the track listing for “disc 36″ contains the entire content of the original double album. The same thing for “Album 49″ (“Aloha From Hawaii Via Satellite”). It says “2 discs” in the description at the top but the entire original album is contained on the track list for “disc 49.”

    I assume that the “2 discs” reference in the description is referring to the fact that the original releases were double albums. That is really misleading though. If that was their intention, they should have used a different descriptor. Since they are reproducing the feel of the original albums, it would make perfect sense in this context to put a double album across 2 CDs.

  11. Denis Williams says:

    £220!….Why?
    I love Elvis have done for many years but these box sets are just overpriced rip-offs,looking at the track listing there is nothing new here,even on the so called rarities discs.
    The artwork on the box is great also the book,though they are not worth £220.
    This box set should be £100 at best even then not worth it!

    • colin says:

      It is pricey admitted but if it was a £100 that would work out at £1.50 per disk and in my eyes that would be well worth it….

  12. David says:

    Did someone really type out all those tracks?

    60 albums and about 3 good ones.

  13. Howie says:

    Would love this but at £220 I will stick to The Complete Elvis Presley Masters which I ‘found’ and is only on 30 CDs and look better with the pictures of the vintage recording equipment on the CDs.

  14. Paul English says:

    Nice looking set but too expensive considering that I forked out for The Complete Masters a few years back (Pop Market deal). I’ll stick with filling my FTD gaps.

  15. Shane says:

    This looks really good. Hopefully there will be more chances of grabbing this at around 100£ and I’ll certainly snatch it up. Just because of the faithful replicas that they promise.

  16. OceanBlue says:

    I think Elvis Presley With The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is missing…

  17. Barrett Bowie says:

    Hmmm, to echo other comments on this thread, I might be tempted to snag this at a lower price.

    While Elvis released only 6 truly great albums in his entire career, I’m really loving these deep dives into the entire recorded output of long-running artists.

    I loved similar collections from Dylan, Miles Davis, Fela Kuti, Leonard Cohen, Harry Nilsson, and several others. Even the “bad” or even “ugly” albums of legendary artists (when listed to in chronological order) become fascinating documents of aging, squandered talent, pandering insecurity, substance abuse, record company meddling, ill-advised experiments, etc. . . which of course also makes the “comeback” albums sound that much better!

    (Elvis’ 6 great albums, by the way, are: Elvis Presley (1956), Elvis (1956), Elvis Is Back!, From Elvis in Memphis, Elvis Country [I’m 10,000 Years Old] + some version of his Sun recordings)

  18. Carlton Fisher says:

    I find this strangely compelling. I’m not even much of an Elvis fan, but there’s something about the sheer volume of it that appeals to the completist in me. I might wind up getting it if it drops in price a bit just for the archival aspect of it. It’s something I know my mother would have loved. I could always dive into it when I’m feeling nostalgic for watching her listen to his records when I was a little kid.

    Less than £100 from bol.com

    No doubt some people will still be bellyaching that it’s too much : )

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      They won’t honour that price. JPC didn’t honur their €130 price, they’ve just cancelled them all.

      • Sami says:

        What was the price over at jpc.de? was it 139€ or 129€?
        I saw it once it was alive (can’t remember exact price) but was wondering still.

        I have The Complete Masters-boxset so Im most likely going to pass this new release unless it comes around with really cheap price.

  20. BRENEZ Alain says:

    Ordered from Bol.com at €129. We will see if they honour that price or not. Doesn’t cost anything to try. Actually I think €129 should be the correct price for albums released between 40 and 60 years ago !!!

  21. Tim says:

    Nothing ‘unreleased’ or even that rare on the rarities discs…missed opportunity and makes the set less desirable…imo.

  22. Matt Reid says:

    Here’s what I see of value:

    -C’Mon Everybody is the 1st official release on cd as far as I know
    -Camden albums with bonus tracks
    -Original sleeve/label artwork.

    Worth it for that—Not for me—yet

    Shame on you, Paul, for approving links to bootlegs…

  24. Ken says:

    Johnny
    Is it okay to link to Amazon then who have loads of bootlegs for sale on their website?

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      Just to chip in, I wasn’t aware that was a link to a bootleg (I thought the ‘legit’ was referring the website itself).

      Anyway, I don’t think there was any malice with regards to the person who posted that link, he was just continuing the discussion. More of a FYI than anything else. Johnny, the whole ‘shame on you’ thing is rather over the top, don’t you think? There’s over 50,000 published comments on this site, it doesn’t mean I ‘support’ or agree with every viewpoint.

  25. johnny says:

    Sorry, Guys, I was just trying to get your attention…I didn’t mean anything horrible
    Best wishes : )

  26. Michael Gershbein says:

    Don’t know anything about that site or the guy selling the set. I was googling the set to see the details (wasn’t aware of its existence previously) and that one popped up in my search. I thought about buying the set for about 10 seconds but chalked it up to “too good to be true”, although the seller had a good rating. I report, you decide.

    • Michael Gershbein says:

      Though looking at it closer, the fact that the guy has 97 of them in stock (and only 2 reviews) does make me a TEENY bit more suspicious.

  29. ROB from Oz says:

    Elvis fans – boycott this release please.

    This kind of marketing is really old and by doing so, you will deliver a powerful message to SONY, that when it comes to Elvis catalogue they’re behind the times. Just look at what was achieved recently with the Beatles online deal with Spotify. I ask why can’t a similar downloading legally deal be set up on Elvis music and outakes ? Elvis fans should be given a variety of options.

    Regards,
    ROB

    I’ll be getting this partly because I want replicas of the LPs which my dad owned and which I played to death when I was 9. But also because I find the albums far more easily digestible than any of the “masters” sets.

    But what I really want to see is ‘Elvis – The UK Albums’ with HMV and RCA replicated labels and UK tracklistings. There must be over a thousand Elvis CDs and the first UK album Rock’n’Roll is still not replicated on CD.

    Would be nice if they just once would include Elvis In Concert in one of these box sets. Maybe even make a special version without all the interview snippets. Some of which are quite annoying.
