50,000,000 Elvis Fans Can’t Be Wrong: Elvis’ Gold Records, Volume 2 (1959). Also out today in remastered editions are the collection The Essential Elvis Presley and the set Elvis at Stax. All of the Elvis activity revolves around Elvis Week in Memphis (August 10 through 17) and Presley’s naming as Legacy Recording’s Artist of the Month for August.
This is the first time that Legacy Recordings and iTunes have collaborated on music releases coinciding with “Elvis Week.” The official Elvis At Stax Listening Party will take place at the Stax Museum in Memphis on August 13. The Q&A session will be attended by famed Nashville musician/producer Norbert Putnam (who originally played on the December sessions at Stax), as well as reissue co-producer Ernst Mikael Jorgensen, the respected director of RCA’s Presley catalog for over two decades, and the author of the critical research guide, Elvis Presley: A Life In Music (St. Martin’s Press, 1998). Elvis At Stax will also be one of the topics discussed at “Conversations On Elvis,” a Q&A session hosted by Elvis aficionado Tom Brown.
