Platinum: A Life In Music (4CD Bookset)

by Elvis Presley

'Platinum: A Life In Music chronicles the outstanding career of Elvis Presley (1954 to 1977) from a unique perspective. It features 100 performances, 77 of which are previously unreleased. This historic overview traces his development as an artist, and emphasizes how Elvis' music always returned to its unshakable core values. This 4CD box set contains a 48-page book and consists mostly of previously-unreleased alternate takes of Elvis Presley's hits. It's both an education and a kick to hear alternate versions of songs as ingrained in the public consciousness as 'That's All Right', and others from Elvis' legendary Sun sessions. Obscure delights like 1969's 'Power Of My Love' update one of rock & roll's most stellar legacies. Off-the-cuff recordings and live TV performances contribute further to this set, which proves that.
