The Elvis Presley Collection 3 CDs

July 07, 2015 | Music

Out now on CD in the how to make a quick buck series, in beautiful sealed cardsleeves, a great collection of three (3) classic Camden / RCA albums. From 1968 to 1975, RCA Camden issued a series of compilation albums. This output primarily consisted of repackaging of Elvis Presley's 1960s-era movie soundtrack recordings. These albums were very successful, due to the low budget price and the great gatefold album sleeves. For many (young) fans these albums were their introduction to the music of Elvis Presley. Although these albums did not always contained the very best of Elvis’ recordings.

The Camden albums taught many customers one valuable lesson: you may find gold, when you least expect it. 'The Elvis Presley Collection' contained 3 volumes. These albums are among the best known Camden releases. And finally, if only for nostalgic reasons, they are now released on CD. Looking like miniature vinyl albums, these releases will bring back many of the happy memories from the good ol’ days. They come sealed and include some special bonus tracks. More for you money !!

Are they any more of a quick buck than the original Camden/Pickwick LPs were? Back when I was in my late teens and 20s (when money wasn't so scarce) I would literally buy almost any Elvis album if I liked the picture on the cover. I'd pretty much had all the songs that had been released by RCA, so it was strictly for the cover photo. I guess it was kind of stupid of me, and I never EVER felt that way about CDs--it just isn't the same to have a little square piece of plastic with a new photo inside. But maybe there are still Elvis fans out there with a lot of disposable income who still pay for stuff like this? I still love Elvis as much as I ever did, but I grew out of being totally obsessed with him. But speaking from experience, if you are obsessed with Elvis, and can afford it, you will buy anything you see with his face on it. I am currently surrounded by evidence of this---my room is jammed full of all the Elvis stuff I bought over the years. And a LOT of it was "quick buck" cash grabs like these.

How to make a compilation like this? Write some song titles on a piece of paper and throw together in a bucket.. Just shake the bucket a couple of times and voila there's the track list....

Everyone is entitled to their opinion on these Camden tracks but I actually want to buy this. Where can I buy this as a search on amazon and ebay yielded nothing
