The King Of Rock 'N' Roll : The Complete 50's Masters five CD box set 2012 re-issue. Like previous 'bookset' reissues of the 60s and 70s masters Boxes, there appear to be all 'pros' and very few 'cons' with this release. The content hasn't changed, simply reconfigured into the shelf-friendly DVD-sized 'bookset'. You still get every studio master released by Elvis in the 1950s, as well as rare recordings (My Happiness and That's When Your Heartaches Begin from 1953) and various alternate takes / outtakes and live cuts. In total, 140 tracks tell the story from the early Sun Records recordings, and the RCA signing, until Elvis put his recording career on hold when joined the army in 1958. The 44-page booklet contains the same Peter Guralnick essay as the original, guiding us through Elvis'career-defining early years in an informative and entertaining manner. There is also a 'sessionograhy' detailing all the recording sessions, as well as a discography. An abundance of photos including album covers, posters record labels evoke the era perfectly.
