Happy Birthday to the King of Rock and Roll! That right, today we celebrate the King’s 75th birthday.
In commemoration of the King of Rock & Roll’s 75th birthday, Legacy Recordings released Elvis 75 – Good Rockin’ Tonight, the ultimate career-spanning collection of seminal recordings by Elvis Presley. Elvis 75 – Good Rockin’ Tonight is a four CD, 100 song collection. It’s currently available everywhere.
Elvis 75 – Good Rockin’ Tonight presents 100 songs, a broad collection of hit singles, deep album tracks, live performances, and rarities. The tracks appear in strict chronological order of recording dates over the course of Disc 1 (1953-1957), Disc 2 (1958-1962), Disc 3 (1963-1969), and Disc 4 (1970-1977). They range from the first demo acetate that Elvis made at the Memphis Recording Service of Sun Records as a gift for his mother in 1953 (“My Happiness”), to a sampling of Sun Records sides produced by Sam Phillips in 1954-55 (“That’s All Right,” “Blue Moon Of Kentucky,” “Good Rockin’ Tonight,” and more), through 21 and a half years of RCA tracks, from 1956 to 1977.
In case that’s a bit too much Elvis, a single disc edition of Elvis 75 – Good Rockin’ Tonight, featuring 26 key tracks culled from the four-disc set, was released earlier this week.
The release of ELVIS 75: GOOD ROCKIN’ TONIGHT coincides with a 4-day celebration of his 75th birthday, January 7-10th, centered at the Graceland estate, outside of Memphis. In addition to the annual birthday proclamation ceremony on the front lawn of Graceland, events will include parties, dances, and panel discussions.
