Each numbered CD comes as a ‘mini-vinyl’ replica card sleeves with an outer and inner bag. The outer bag features the original U.S. picture sleeve artwork, while the inner bag replicates a generic U.K. RCA single from the time of the original U.K. release. Rather than have the standard silver finish on the ‘playing’ side of the disc, each CD rear comes with a black finish, again to replicate a miniaturised version and the look of the original vinyl release.

4 Stars4 Stars4 Stars4 StarsI have just finished collecting this set. Yes, they charge £4 each because they know we will buy them. The biggest gripe I have is the fact that they are supposed to be the original 'a' & 'b' sides. I have noticed some of the tracks are NOT the originals but alternative versions. Still, all things considered, it's not a bad collection.

5 Stars5 Stars5 Stars5 Stars5 StarsI've bought all these singles as I did the 18 Number Ones a couple of years ago. I did it because they are good looking souvenirs, slightly quirky and (ironically for reissues) with a touch of originality (vinyl lookalike CDs, picture covers, old style sleeves) and the songs are great. My question to the custodians of Elvis's legacy (EPE/CKX/BMG etc) is, "Why are these CDs so expensive?" £4 ($8) a time plus £6 ($12) for a cardboard box to hold them. Maybe I am a mug and so are the rest of us who bought them without waiting for eBay or future discounting etc, but what about the many who have been put off by the price? Surely the custodians could make just as much filthy profit by selling lots cheaply rather than a few expensively?
