NEW YORK, Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Legacy Recordings is proud to announce the release of Elvis 75 - Good Rockin' Tonight, the ultimate career-spanning collection of seminal recordings by Elvis Presley, in commemoration of the King of Rock & Roll's 75th birthday (January 8, 2010). Elvis 75 - Good Rockin' Tonight -- a four CD, 100 song collection -- will be available everywhere on Tuesday, December 8.
The first major Elvis Presley retrospective to cover the full spectrum of the artist's world-changing career, Elvis 75 - Good Rockin' Tonight runs from "My Happiness," the acetate Elvis himself paid nearly four dollars to record at the Memphis Recording Service on July 18, 1953, a year before signing with Sun Records, to "A Little Less Conversation (JXL Radio Remix Edit)," a posthumous #1 hit for Elvis in the UK, Australia and more than 20 other countries in 2002.
Offering fans an unprecedented range of essential material, Elvis 75 - Good Rockin' Tonight provides a generous selection of the electrifying earth-shattering primal rock & roll of young Elvis; the swinging good vibes of Elvis's soundtrack recordings; the heartfelt humility of his gospel performances and the intimacy of his ballads; the pure pop power and show biz magic of Elvis in Vegas; and a record-setting number of #1 and Top 10 international smashes.
The lavish Elvis 75 - Good Rockin' Tonight box set includes an 80-page booklet featuring many rare photographs and a new essay by musical and cultural critic Billy Altman (Rolling Stone, The New Yorker).
A single disc edition of Elvis 75 - Good Rockin' Tonight, featuring key tracks culled from the four-disc set, will be released on January 5, 2010 (the week of Elvis' birthday: January 8).
Legacy's release of Elvis 75 - Good Rockin' Tonight kicks off a year-long celebration of the life and music of Elvis Presley, the world's first rock & roll star.
