Complete Elvis Masters To Be Released October 19

CompleteElvis.com will release the complete collection of Elvis Presley masters on October 19.

All 711 remastered tracks released by Elvis Presley will be released by CompleteElvis.com on October 19. The collection will include 30 compact discs that will have 35 hours of his music plus a 240 page book about the songs with information about each song including charting position.

The website also states there are 103 additional rarities for a total of 814 tracks in the collection:

Also included are 103 rarities: additional masters, alternate takes, session outtakes, demos, rehearsal jams, home recordings, live performances and radio recordings This triumph of musicology is the definitive document – a magnificent audio chronicle of the inspiration, pain and genius that make Elvis the world’s most enduring musical and cultural icon.

The collection is being released in commemoration of his 75th birthday on January 8 of this year.

The website also includes a list of songs on each compact disc.

There is nothing cheap about the set since it will cost $749 plus tax and shipping. It can be pre-ordered now  but won’t be released till October 19. If they sell only 10,000 of these sets which is unlikely $7.49 million will be made from those sales not including the cost for tax and shipping.

The usual disclaimer applies in that I am in no way connected with the sale of this collection and am only letting potential buyers know of the release on October 19.
