I have received a press release and I have not opened it for fear that I won’t be able to give it up. I can’t rip it open because I want to give it away on my blog. To me, this is an awesome giveaway. Sometimes, I want to enter my own giveaways. Elvis is one of the best artist’s out there regardless of how he lived his life. His music is much celebrated and something I love. I remember in college, my best friends were huge Elvis fans, part of the reason is because two of them were from Memphis, home of Graceland. Not only were they from there but my roommate’s mother works there. The four of us all visited Graceland and it was great. There is a lot of history in his life, not just his history but he lived through a lot.
Legacy Recordings is proud to announce the release of Elvis 75 – Good Rockin’ Tonight, the ultimate career-spanning collection of seminal recordings by Elvis Presley, in commemoration of the King of Rock & Roll’s 75th birthday (January 8, 2010). Elvis 75 – Good Rockin’ Tonight — a four CD, 100 song collection — is available everywhere now. A single disc edition of Elvis 75 – Good Rockin’ Tonight, featuring 26 key tracks culled from the four-disc set, was released today Jan 4th (the week of Elvis’ birthday: January 8).
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.

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.
