The Roots of Elvis

The Czech releases are still fresh in mind and while everybody thought it was over, Memory Records presents a new release (CD MR 2019). It will contain songs that influenced Elvis, most often covered by him during his career. The tracks are remastered, including the spoken words of Elvis, with which he presents the songs to the listener. This CD was produced in full accordance with all EU regulations about owner- and songwriter copyright laws, as all songs were recorded before May 1951. The release date is set on May 8.
