ELVIS PRESLEY THE ESSENTIAL ALBUMS Limited 180gram Vinyl 3LP Box Set

Overview:

ELVIS PRESLEY / THE ESSENTAIL ALBUMS Includes three complete masterpieces by the King of Rock & Roll: his 1956 debut LP 'Elvis', 'King Creole', and 'Blue Hawaii'.

Elvis Presley (Tupelo, Mississippi, January 8, 1935 Memphis, Tennessee, August 16,1977) was rock & roll's first real star and one of the most important cultural forces in history. He performed with a natural sexuality that made him a teen idol and role model for generations of cool rebels. His energized interpretations of songs, combined with a singularly potent mix of influences across colour lines during a transformative era in race relations, making him enormously controversial, influential and popular at the same time. Years of prescription drug abuse severely compromised his health, and he died in 1977 at his Graceland estate at the age of 42. Presented here are three of his best albums.

AllMusic: Elvis Presley "This was as startling a debut record as any ever made, representing every side of Elvis' musical influences; rockabilly, blues, R&B, country, and pop were all here in an explosive and seductive combination. Elvis Presley became the first rock & roll album to reach the number one spot on the national charts, and RCA's first million dollar-earning pop album."
