Description

Limited edition 180g vinyl audiophile pressing, high-definition premium vinyl for super fidelity. This quintessential collector's edition contains the iconic album " 50,000,000 Elvis Fans Can't Be Wrong" (Elvis' Gold Records - Volume 2). The ninth LP of Elvis Presley's career, it was issued by RCA Victor (LPM 2075) in November 1959. The record is a compilation of hit singles released between 1958 and 1959, belonging to two sessions in June of 1958 at RCA Studios in Nashville, and three at Radio Recorders in Hollywood.

In the two years that Elvis had by then spent in the army, the world of Rock & Roll had changed dramatically. This album was meant as a pacifier for Elvis' fans in the two-year hiatus he would be unable to record any new songs, and it worked: after Elvis' return he was more popular than ever, which proved that all his fans had, indeed, been right all along.

Also known as 'Gold Records Vol.2,' it comprised every single, both A-sides and B-sides, released by Presley during 1958 and 1959, apart from 'Hard Headed Woman' backed by 'Don't Ask Me Why,' both of which were previously issued on the King Creole LP (1958). All the singles made the Top Five on the Billboard Hot 100, and the B-sides all charted in the Top 40 independently of the hit sides.

Another essential element that makes this album an iconic collector's item is the famous cover photo, consisting of multiple images of Elvis wearing the gold lame suit designed by Nudie's of Hollywood, a design that has been copied many times and inspired several artists, such as Phil Ochs, The Fall, Rod Stewart and Elvis Costello.
