Debuting at #1 in America (a first for Elvis) and staying atop the chart for 3 straight weeks, ELV1S 30 #1 HITS was one of the top 20 best selling albums of the year. Outside the States, it topped the charts in 26 countries. Meanwhile, the box set Elvis Today, Tomorrow & Forever -- now approaching gold status -- garnered kudos and appreciation from Elvis’ core fans and was named best reissue of 2002 by Rolling Stone magazine. Future products to meet new demand are planned for this year. A vivid reminder of Presley’s relevance and of the remarkable connection his music has made with fans new and old, the success of last year’s releases points to a new generation of core fans eager to dive into this essential artist’s varied career. Fully mixed and remastered from the original session tapes and annotated by Grammy-award winning scholar Colin Escott, ELVIS: CLOSE UP is an insightful overview, showing off Presley rehearsing and honing his music and tracing the evolution of a Legend: DISC 1: UNRELEASED STEREO MASTERS FROM THE 1950s A full disc of stereo masters released for the first time in stereo and never before heard outtakes, a rarity for any ‘50s recordings. Highlights include songs from Loving You, Jailhouse Rock and additional cuts from his January 1957 sessions at Radio Recorders.

The CD opens with Make Me Know It, his first recorded post-army song, and concludes with U.S. Male, the last song recorded with the incredible Nashville A-team. Other key tracks include Surrender, His Latest Flame, The Girl of My Best Friend, and Kiss Me Quick. DISC 4: LIVE IN TEXAS 1972 A complete unreleased live concert recorded in San Antonio, Texas on April 18, 1972.
