Elvis Presley Elvis' Gold Records Volume 5 on 180g LP
Friday Music / Elvis Presley 180 Gram Vinyl Series
Mastered by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios & Pressed at RTI
As a struggling young truck driver in the '50s, Elvis Presley 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. He would eventually become the most successful solo artist of all time!
For the remainder of the 1950’s through the mid-1970's, Elvis would release several more hit albums, smash singles and movies before his untimely passing in 1977. Originally issued posthumously in 1984, Elvis' Gold Records Volume 5 is the final installment in RCA's Elvis' Gold Records series which began in 1958.
The Gold certified 10-song set compiles such landmark Elvis Presley fare as the Memphis session groover "Suspicious Minds," lonely ballad "Kentucky Rain," poverty ode "In The Ghetto," NBC TV Comeback Special smash "If I Can Dream," and runaway hit about the breakdown of a relationship "Burning Love" among others.
In honor of the Man, the Music, the Legend, the King Of Rock And Roll, Friday Music is pleased to present the 180 Gram Vinyl Series release of the RCA Victor classic compilation Elvis’ Gold Records Volume 5, mastered by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and manufactured at R.T.I.
