iTunes Review

As the title implies, this is every Elvis Presley album (nine of them!) issued by RCA Records in the '50s. A few are considered studio albums, some are movie soundtracks, others are called "greatest hits" sets, and several were issued to keep Elvis' career moving while he served in the U.S. Army. In this modern age, with immediate access to music, it's hard to imagine how difficult it was to collect all of a musician's records back in the '50s—even one as famous as Elvis Presley. Singles often weren't included on albums, and Elvis' legendary Sun Records singles were near impossible to find outside of Memphis. All that said, Presley's output in the '50s was nothing short of spectacular. His singles became international hits, album tracks showed similar potential, and RCA peppered a few albums with the Sun sessions, especially during the Army years. For LP Fans Only includes Presley's first recording for Sun—"That's All Right"—and essentials like "Mystery Train" and "You're a Heartbreaker." To help empty the vaults, A Date with Elvis threw in Elvis' first Sun b-side ("Blue Moon of Kentucky"), plus "Good Rockin' Tonight" and "Baby, Let's Play House," among many others.

What happened to this generation

I wish I lived in the 50's and I'm fifteen, I hate this generation, everything was so better back then, now it's all sexual.

....in the beginning

John Lennon once said "before Elvis ,there was nothing" i have yet to disagree with John Lennon.

👍👍👍👍

To me this is a really good price for over 100 songs. If you really love Elvis, this is REALLY worth it.

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '50s, '60s, '70s

Elvis Presley may be the single most important figure in American 20th century popular music. Not necessarily the best, and certainly not the most consistent. But no one could argue with the fact that he was the musician most responsible for popularizing rock & roll on an international level. Viewed in cold sales figures, his impact was phenomenal. Dozens upon dozens of international smashes from the mid-'50s to the mid-'70s, as well as the steady sales of his catalog and reissues since his death...
