Thorough research of each song and songwriter has taken many years and provides the definitive history of the music that shook the world, sensationally revealing many previously unknown facts and British connections to Elvis and his music. Included, and officially gathered together for the FIRST TIME on two exclusive CDs, is every Elvis track released by HMV. Most of these are, of course, the fifties master takes but also added to these are bonus songwriter demos and Elvis outtakes, including some of the 'Love Me Tender' Stereo versions. These help complete the audio story upon which the foundation of the global popular music culture and industry was built. This is Elvis and the story of the impact of The King of Rock ‘n’ Roll in Great Britain.
The Guitar Play Along DVD series lets you hear and see how to play songs like never before. Just watch, listen and learn! Each song starts with a lesson from a professional guitar teacher.

I consider this to be the best Elvis soundtrack album so I was looking forward to getting this sacd. Pleased to say it was worth the wait! Before playing the disc I dug out my old Japanese paper sleeve edition cd for a sound quality comparison as I always considered it to be a benchmark cd for this album. What a difference! The jap cd sounds harsh compared to this sacd version.
