Essential New Seasonal Collection Unites Classic Elvis Presley Holiday Performances with Brand-New Orchestral Accompaniment!
Christmas with Elvis and The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra brings together Elvis Presley's best-loved yuletide performances from Elvis' Christmas Album (1957) and Elvis Sings the Wonderful World of Christmas (1971) re-imagined with sublime and exquisite new arrangements performed by The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Produced by Nick Patrick and Don Reedman and recorded at Abbey Road Studio 2, it follows in the phenomenal worldwide success of 2015's If I Can Dream: Elvis Presley with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (which has sold more than 1.5 million copies) and 2016's The Wonder Of You: Elvis Presley with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (which sold more than 800,000 copies worldwide).
This holiday season also marks the 60th anniversary of Elvis' Christmas Album, the perennial classic that's become the top-selling holiday album of all-time. Elvis' signature interpretations of secular and sacred holiday classics have become an integral musical component of Christmas around-the-world. Elvis' Christmas Album topped the Billboard 200 for four weeks in 1957 and 1958 and has remained a constant chart fixture for years after, selling more than three million copies. A reissue on RCA's Camden label was certified Diamond by the Recording Industry Association of America, becoming Elvis' single bestselling album and the bestselling holiday album of all time.
