The King In The Ring

March 08, 2018 | Music

Sony will release a special 2LP set on red vinyl for Record Store Day: The King In The Ring.

Elvis Presley re-established himself as The King of Rock and Roll with ELVIS, the widely-seen “comeback special” broadcast on NBC at the end of 1968. The show’s many highlights included laid-back live performances recorded in the round before a small audience and featuring a powerful ensemble—including guitarist Scotty Moore and drummer D.J. Fontana, both part of Elvis’ original, classic backing band. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of ELVIS, both electrifying, intimate “sit-down” sets will be released on vinyl for the first time in an individually numbered 2LP package with a newly created gatefold sleeve, pressed on red vinyl.

I hope these will be unedited and will be followed by more vinyl releases - Flaming Star, Wild in the Country and the last movies soundtracks, late 60s singles collections etc. If the CD/FTD releases are drying up then there are a ton of ideas for vinyl.

It's very strange that there's no mention above of when Record Store Day is this year! . . . Saturday, April 21, 2018 . . .
