The first of four new episodes in our very popular Elvis podcast looks back on when he was not yet the king, but a young man with a big beat. You’ll hear music from his landmark 1956 RCA sessions that produced some of rock & roll’s most seminal recordings – the self-titled debut album for his new label, plus his early 45-only hit singles “Hound Dog,” “Love Me Tender” and “Don’t Be Cruel.”
In stores now from Legacy Recordings – The Elvis Presley: Legacy Edition features his landmark RCA debut album plus more masters from those 1956 sessions on 2 discs. The Young Man with the Big Beat 5-CD box set adds three more discs of previously unreleased outtakes, live tracks and interviews in a deluxe package with expanded liner notes and collectibles as pictured below.
