E*L*V*I*S - The Complete US EP Collection (BF Edition)

You know, EPs were really a thing back in the '50s and '60's. This is my companion to Elvis' Complete Singles Collection a few years back - it has been sitting since 2016 waiting to be completed. So here's the deal: all of the King's EPs, presented in their original (read - mostly mono) mixes in the best possible (for 320) quality, tagged not only with the covers, but with the backs and labels too. Try it on your iPhone, PC or DVD/Blu-Ray player - it's pretty cool!

This collection is different from the singles collection in that it includes the deeper cuts, the ones that Elvis' real fans would want. That's what this collection is: a real fan's collection from back in the day. LPs didn't really fit all that well on a teenager's record player anyway.

I went deeper into this collection in a different way too - I included promo/jukebox EPs as well as planned but never issued EPs, mainly later soundtracks that never got an LP release back in the day. Here's more info: Elvis Extended-Play

Anyway, this set took a surprising amount of work locating the correct mixes of these songs. There is a small bit of song duplication, but not enough to annoy. All tracks are mono until track # 123. I broke it into two DL's and included a ZIP file of all the artwork.

This is the real Elvis fan's Elvis. Enjoy!
