Elvis The Legend


Country: West Germany

Number: RCA PD89061, RCA PD89062, RCA PD89063

Price: 50 euro

Comments: Rare original 1983 German RCA 3-CD box set. This was the first issue of Elvis on CD anywhere in the world and one of the earliest commercial CDs released. Each disc is gold coloured has unique gold bordered picture sleeve and the three were presented a slipcase, which is missing here. The set was limited to only 5000 worldwide. The accompanying Certificate indicates that this is set Number 3974. The certificate shows moisture damage (possibly water), but the CDs are fine and can even still be played. Note that the back inserts (track listings) of CDs 2 and 3 are the same — an error made by RCA when the set was released, apparently. Price for this ultra rare set is low, reflecting the lack of the original cardboard slipcase. Track listing:
