Back in 2009 Spanish newspaper La Vanguardia and Sony/BMG Spain released some of Elvis' best albums in a series of illustrated 30 pages hard-cover books containing the CD discography and biography of Elvis. The series was entitled 'Essential Collection'. Italy followed in 2010. This series is now available to collect for U.K. fans through a monthly subscription.
The series consists of 20 of Elvis' very best albums selected to form the collection which includes titles like: From Elvis In Memphis, That´s The Way It Is, NBC TV Special, Elvis Presley, Elvis, King Creole, Elvis Is Back! and 13 more.
