The word "essential" has two meanings: one is "indispensable," the other "being a part of the essence of something." This second meaning characterizes RCA's Essential Elvis series, a vehicle for the release of Elvis Presley's alternate takes. Through these releases, listeners hear Elvis at work, refining band arrangements and working through the nuances of his vocal performance.

In short, the series reveals the "essence" of the 'The King of Rock and Roll' by documenting a great musician engrossed in the creative process. Volume 2 documents a January 1957 session at which Presley produced material for two EPs and the Loving You soundtrack.

There are a number of first and second takes, during which Elvis and his backing musicians make tentative passes at the material. As the record progresses, arrangements take shape and Presley, growing more confident that a keeper take is imminent, sings with more enthusiasm.

Throughout, Elvis is heard directing the proceedings and demonstrating a lot of "aw shucks" charm in the process, goofing with band members and laughing through his and others' flubs. For serious Elvis Presley fans and anyone else interested in the creative process, Volume 2 meets the first definition of "essential" as well as the second: it's indispensable stuff!

Features:
- Hybrid SACD from Analogue Productions
- Mastered by Sterling Sound
- Compatible with both CD and SACD players
