Elvis Presley was born during the great depression into a poor family in Mississippi. They moved to Memphis during the early '50s, and as a struggling young truck driver, he cut some demos at Sun Studios as a gift for his beloved mother Gladys. These initial songs, of which he had only paid a few dollars to record, would become the catalyst that would kick-start the career of a soon to be worldwide superstar unlike the world has ever known.
The folks at RCA Victor knew that this young fellow named Elvis was destined for superstardom. They quickly bought out his contract and signed the legend to a long term deal, and his first RCA single "Heartbreak Hotel" forever etched 'The King Of Rock And Roll' trademark to his name. For the remainder of the 1950’s, Elvis would release several more hit albums, smash singles and movies before spending time in the Army.
Ever proving that he was indeed on top of his game, RCA Victor awarded their superstar artist and his fans with the King’s second greatest hits collection Elvis’ Gold Records Volume 2 in 1959, also known as 50,000,000 Elvis Fans Can’t Be Wrong. Featuring a treasure trove of his most familiar top charting hit singles Elvis’ Gold Records Volume 2 went on to become one of his most memorable titles as well as one of the most copied album covers of all time.
Elvis Presley’s biggest hits were just what the fans were screaming for, and the entire album was built around the framework of his trademark sound. Rockers like "Wear My Ring Around Your Neck," "A Fool Such As I," "I Got Stung" and "A Big Hunk O’ Love," sit alongside some of Elvis' finest ballads like "Don’t," "My Wish Came True" and the soulful "Doncha’ Think It’s Time."
In total, the album showcases ten important Elvis Presley hit recordings which have truly gone on to become definitive classics by any measure of popular music. Friday Music is very proud and honored to offer Elvis' Gold Records Volume 2 / 50,000 Elvis Fans Can’t Be Wrong on 180g vinyl mastered by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and manufactured at RTI.
