RCA announces the issue of Elvis by the Presleys, a 2-CD complementary issue for the upcoming TV special. This 2 disc special will contain 24 songs on the first disc, with a bonus disc that includes alternate takes, demos, live, and private recordings of well known songs that include "Jailhouse Rock," "Blue Christmas," and "Baby What You Want Me To Do." These songs are mastered using DSD technology.
This CD set will issue on May 3 and be followed by the DVD (4.5 hours long form of the upcoming televised TV special) on May 17. Soon a coffee table book will join the two media titles.
