Here are vinyl copies of the 50's and 60's masters boxed sets, both released in Germany. the 50's set was released in 1992 and the 60's set was released in 1993.

Is it right that they never released the seventies set on vinyl LPs?

I remember buying the sixties set from my town's only independent record shop which has since closed down, unfortunately. They had to make a special order for me and it cost exactly 50 (Pounds Sterling) and that seemed a huge amount of money then (and now!). At that time I didn't even own a CD player because I preferred vinyl records but I had to give in soon afterwards, so I think that box set must have been the last newly released vinyl LP record(s) I ever bought. Ahh, memories ...

This is a nice topic. Thanks for all the information and pictures!

Hi everyone,

You are correct Spider, they never did release the 70's set on vinyl. The closest they came was issuing the 70's set, along with the 50's and 60's in Cd format in a 12x12 box so it looks like a vinyl set. I have seen the European CD versions of each and also the Japanese CD versions of each. I actually had to mail order my 60's vinyl set because there was no place that imported them at the time.

Cheers,

Hi everyone. I think I read somewhere on this site that if I don't post for a few months then my account gets cancelled. Thus, I thought I would post and say hi since its been a while since I have been here. Cheers to all!

In 1979 Candelite records released a boxed set titled: "The Legendary Recordings of Elvis". There were two versions of the box, one was a deluxe version and the other was a standard version. The deluxe version was 7lps in size, burgandy in color and was made to look like a book with protruding corners among other things. Then there was a standard version with 6lps, 1 lp less than the deluxe version. The box color on the standard version is black and was a slipcase style like the "Memories of Elvis" and "Elvis Presley Story" boxes released in 1978 and 1977 respectively. Here is a picture of the standard version of "The Legendary Recordings of Elvis".

The tracklist for this 6 LP set can be found in the book Record Collector / Price guide by Jerry Osborne; also you find there details about Candlelight LP's and other special releases. However there are no unreleased tracks to be found on these kind of releases. Also no alternates on RCA Record club or RCA Special Products releases.

A fantastic collection.
I bought the tape version while I was in Blackpool, quite a few years ago.
Always loved the cover, but rarely played the cassettes.
Still in quite a "mint" condition though, never realised it was such a rare item.

Not sure what I paid but it was quite cheap.

Another insertion into this thread is of the box "Artist of the Century". Did you know that there are four versions of this vinyl lp box? The most common is the black vinyl version, widely avaliable in North America upon its release in 1999. In that same year, three other versions of the box were released. There was a picture disc version and these were numbered. I have seen numbers over 3000 so they can be found. However, it gets much more difficult to find the red vinyl versions. I have no idea how many of the red versions were released but they were numbered also. The most difficult of all four is the blue vinyl version pictured below. There were 500 copies of this box made and every box comes with a sticker and number out of 500. I bought my set from a dealer in the U.K. who told me they used to bring blue vinyl copies to record concentions in the U.S. (because blue vinyl was plentiful in the U.K.) and trade for red vinyl copies (which were more plentiful in the U.S.) and bring them back to the U.K. I paid a good price for my blue copy from that dealer but I did get torched on shipping. Oh well, its worth it for the king.

Did you know there is a Gold disc limited to 999 and all numbered for the AOTC also
