Elvis NBC-TV Special 180-gram vinyl limited edition gatefold LP
Mastered by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and manufactured at RTI
In 1968, after a series of very successful movies and top charting recordings, Elvis made a wise decision to work with the folks at NBC and develop a Christmas TV special, which would have The King perform in front of a live studio audience for the first time in years.
This legendary career move spread like wildfire and soon was hailed as "The Comeback," further igniting his career to an all new high. The King took his shows to the theatres and casinos and super massive stadium tours over the next number of years, while releasing a plethora of even more gold and platinum recordings.
With the soundtrack album from the special nearing release, it was already gaining popularity in advance thanks to the chart single smash "If I Can Dream." This masterwork album included a treasure trove of rare television studio performances that captured a very great time in the musical history of this genius. In addition to the wonderful hit single aforementioned, The King reaches back to his early Memphis days with his first chart topper "Heartbreak Hotel" and more '50s classics like "Lawdy Miss Clawdy," "All Shook Up" and even a pair of Jimmy Reed blues classics with "Big Boss Man" and "Baby, What You Want Me to Do."
Even more hit tracks and sensational medleys featuring Elvis classics abound including "Guitar Man," "Blue Christmas," "Love Me Tender" and "Can't Help Falling in Love." Plus the beautiful ballad "Memories" is also included which has since become an Elvis fan favorite thanks to the wonderful production on this brilliant album.
Elvis Presley's TV Special album would go on to become one of his biggest albums ever, as fans rushed to the stores to buy this stunning rock and roll soundtrack back in December of 1968. Initially pressed on vinyl, this amazing album has been out of print on vinyl for several decades...that is until now!
