Elvis #1 Singles Box Set And Heartbreak Hotel Release

Celebrating the milestone 50th anniversary of Elvis Presley's first RCA recording session and first #1 hit 'Heartbreak Hotel,' the SONY BMG Strategic Marketing Group will release the deluxe 'Elvis #1 Singles' Box Set on January 24, 2006. The UK version of this box set caused frenzy among Elvis fans as they anxiously waited week to week for the release of the next single to build out their box set. The US version will release all 21 #1 US hits on 20 individual CD singles together in a limited edition, numbered collectors box set. (One of the 20 CD singles is a double A-side containing two #1 hits, 'Hound Dog' and 'Don't Be Cruel'). Each single will be individually packaged in a dynamic mini sleeve reflective of the original single artwork. Preserving the look of the original 45's, each CD will be pressed on black plastic with grooves to mimic vinyl. Presley's famous first RCA Studios session, recorded just days after his 21st birthday, produced 'Heartbreak Hotel.' Recorded on January 10th and 11th in 1956, and released just a few weeks later, the epic single spent 8 weeks on the Billboard Top 100 chart at #1. The single crossed genres, topping the country charts for 17 weeks and reaching #3 on the R&B charts. Sony BMG commemorates the 50th anniversary of this legendary recording by re-releasing the 'Heartbreak Hotel' single on January 10, 2006. The single artwork will emulate that of the EP that was released in April of 1956, as well as the artwork of the original single that was released in a generic RCA paper sleeve. Track Listing: 1) Heartbreak Hotel / I Was The One 2) I Want You, I Need You, I Love You / My Baby Left Me 3) Don’t Be Cruel / Hound Dog 4) Love Me Tender / Any Way You Want Me 5) Too Much / Playing For Keeps 6) All Shook Up / That’s When Your Heartaches Begin 7) Teddy Bear / Loving You 8) Jailhouse Rock / Treat Me Nice 9) Don’t / I Beg Of You 10) Hard Headed Woman / Don’t Ask Me Why 11) A Big Hunk O’ Love / My Wish Came True 12) Stuck On You / Fame And Fortune 13) It's Now Or Never / A Mess Of Blues 14) Are You Lonesome Tonight / I Gotta Know 15) Surrender / Lonely Man 16) Good Luck Charm / Anything That’s Part Of You 17) Return To Sender / Where Do You Come From 18) In The Ghetto / Any Day Now 19) Suspicious Minds / You’ll Think Of Me 20) Burning Love / A Matter Of Time

Singles sold as a set most likely would not qualify for the charts, but I would be glad to be wrong.

And why no extra track either, similar to the UK version? I think I'll skip these too!

It`s a pity, there will be no vinyl. I think I won`t buy it.
