Rare Elvis Resurfaces
Imagine hearing Elvis Presley perform for 200 people in 1955 when he was just the Prince of Rock and Roll.
Outwest Records is planning to release a recording of this early concert which took
place at Eagle's Hall in Houston, Texas. In 1980, the record company released a
limited vinyl edition, which sold out instantly. Now they are scheduled to re-release
a CD version of this five-track recording entitled Raw Elvis. Look for the release in October.
Elvis fans in the States can purchase "ELVIS, 20TH ANNIVERSARY SAMPLER" CD from
Blockbuster.com. They don't accept international orders.(U.S. residents only)
