THE KING IS IN THE RING FOR RECORD STORE DAY
March 06,  2018   -   Sony Music   /   Elvis Express Radio
Elvis Presley, The King In The Ring (2LP – Individually Numbered – Red Vinyl – First Time on Vinyl)

Event: RECORD STORE DAY 2018
Release Date: April 21st 2018
Format: 2 x LP
Label: Legacy/Sony Music
Quantity: 3000
Release type: RSD Exclusive Release

This album is listed as being released on both UK and USA RSD lists.

Elvis Presley re-established himself as The King of Rock and Roll with ELVIS, the widely-seen “comeback special” broadcast on NBC at the end of 1968.

The show’s many highlights included laid-back live performances recorded in the round before a small audience and featuring a powerful ensemble—including guitarist Scotty Moore
and drummer D.J. Fontana, both part of Elvis’ original, classic backing band.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of ELVIS, both electrifying, intimate “sit-down” sets will be released on vinyl for the first time in an individually numbered 2LP package with a newly
created gatefold sleeve, pressed on red vinyl (This album has been previously released as 'Tiger Man' on CD).

The history of Presley’s amazing “comeback special” is told in
Elvis Presley: The Searcher, the new documentary premiering April 14 on HBO.

Unscrupulous Dealers
Record Store Day is an annual event inaugurated in 2007 and held on one Saturday every April to "celebrate the culture of the independently owned record store". The day brings
together fans, artists, and thousands of independent record stores across the world. A number of records are pressed specifically for Record Store Day, with a unique list of
releases for each country, and are only distributed to shops participating in the event.

HOWEVER, there's always some unscrupulous dealer/s out there, and while there are around 45 days to go until RSD (at time of writing), a couple of dealers have the album listed
on Ebay as Buy It Now options priced at a ridiculous
£115.00 [US$159.00]  from a seller in the UK, and £133.89 [US$184.00] from a seller in Spain.

RECORD STORE DAY is on APRIL 21st 2018 ... Happy Hunting all you collectors out there.
