In Germany one million copies were sold within a year of it's release, in Finland it became the biggest selling 'greatest hits' album ever, in Belgium it sold more than 270.000 copies and in Holland it was one of the very few Elvis albums that went straight to number 1 on the charts ( in 1974 ).
By the end of the 1970's the original FOREVER album had sold more copies than UK's '40 Greatest', without even being released in the UK or US (more than 5.000.000 copies).
After the huge success of FOREVER Volume 1, RCA decided in the 1980's to release 4 more Volumes in the FOREVER series. Although they sold well, they never became the huge success of the first Volume.
Elvis Forever Volume 1 was released on CD by RCA as a double CD album and as a single CD album (containing 30 tracks instead of the original 32). Volume 2 was also released, in 2 different versions, but both editions contained only 31 tracks and not 32). The CD version of 'Elvis Forever Volume 2' with the original album cover (released in Holland) is almost undefinable these days, and the CD version promoting the 'Elvis Eau De Toilette' (only released in Germany with a totally different cover) is also a rarity.
All the other Volumes in the FOREVER series are unreleased on CD.
Now the COMPLETE collection of original Elvis Forever albums are to be available on CD. Housed in stunning 3 panel digipacks with original album artwork, each FOREVER Volume contains 2 Discs with the 32 original album tracks (from the latest masters) on Disc 1 plus a bonus Disc 2 with rare and hard to find recordings.
With a total of 50 rare bonus tracks, this collection of 5 double-albums has a total of 210 tracks!
A massive and ultimate Elvis collection!!
But there's more ...
With Elvis Forever Volumes 3 and 4, you receive a FREE stunning cardboard storage box, so when you have collected the complete series you can storage them all in one beautiful box!
The first two releases in this series are now released and they are: Elvis Forever Volume 3 and Volume 4.
The others Volumes will be released in April / May 2012.

Another classic Elvis compilation is to be released on bootleg, this time the 1975 'Elvis 40 Greatest Hits' compilation. It was the UK's 5th best selling album of 1975 and the 6th best selling LP of the 1970s. It topped the charts for ten weeks and part of its success was due, undoubtedly, to the fact that it was advertised widely on TV - the first album ever to be promoted in this way. RCA also later released this album in October 1978, when it reached #40 in a 14 week chart run. This release contains over 2 and a half hours of some of the greatest Elvis Presley recordings including 18 rare and hard to find tracks.

Welcome To My World album on CD
Welcome To My World has been released on CD featuring the original 10 tracks plus 10 bonus tracks. 'Welcome to My World' was released by RCA Records in early 1977, just months before Elvis' death. The album was certified Gold on September 30, 1977 and Platinum on January 14, 1983 by the RIAA.
Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD + 16 page booklet.
Never before have we seen an Elvis Presley concert from the 1950's with sound. Until Now! The DVD Contains recently discovered unreleased film of Elvis performing 6 songs, including Heartbreak Hotel and Don't Be Cruel, live in Tupelo Mississippi 1956. Included we see a live performance of the elusive Long Tall Sally seen here for the first time ever.
This is an excellent release no fan should be without it.
The 'parade' footage is good to see as it puts you in the right context with color and b&w footage. The interviews of Elvis' Parents are well worth hearing too. The afternoon show footage is wonderful and electrifying : Here is Elvis in his prime rocking and rolling in front of 11.000 people. Highly recommended.
