From the editiorial of the Official UK Elvis Presley Fan Club magazine we picked various updates on future releases.
The success in the UK of the “Elvis by the Presley’s” Book, CD and DVD triology has amazed everyone, especially as each item topped three of the British Sales charts. Now the next anniversary is going to be a big one for the RCA record label, and January 10th will see the 50th anniversary of the recording of their first Presley single “Heartbreak Hotel”. In the UK, Elvis’ first singles were not pressed on the RCA imprint because the record company had no representation in the UK in 1956 – they were issued by HMV which at the time shared the nipper-dog trade mark with the American giant. So it is being discussed that there could be limited editioned singles on the HMV label available in HMV stores only, and RCA limited edition singles available every where else, except in HMV outlets with possibly even 10” HMV vinyls too. With such exposure Elvis is sure to top the singles charts in 2007 yest again. More news as it breaks. Also being considered is an album set featuring much of Elvis’ first ever recording session in Nashville of 10th Jsanuary 1956.
And there is much much more to come. Stay tuned, and keep your membership current, so that you don’t miss out on any of the future exciting events. Remember at the very end of December 2006 the official Elvis Presley Fan Club of Great Britain celebrates it’s 50th anniversary with a book, a CD album, plus a special nationwide radio show tribute.
