This CD isn't interesting, but it is probably one of the top 10 rarest official U.S. RCA CD releases (not including promos). Others to look out for are:

Elvis Presley (Electronic Stereo) PCD1-1254
Elvis (Electronic Stereo) PCD1-1382
Elvis' Golden Records (Electronic Stereo) PCD1-1707
Elvis' Gold Records Vol.2 (Electronic Stereo) PCD1-2075
Merry Christmas PCD1-5301
Elvis Country 6330-2-R
Seperate Ways CCD-2611

None of these are terribly interesting from a musical standpoint, but they have tremendous value to collectors that must have all the official releases.

I agree with most titles on your list, but I think you kan skip the 'Seperate Ways' CD. It rarely fetches over $ 40.00.
And that 'Elvis Country' CD is totally out of place between those megarare reprocessed stereo CD's.
The US 'Merry Christmas' CD is also a true rarity.

Ever heard of this one?
It's a BMG Special Product, and very rare.

Bob,

Are we talking about the same Elvis Country CD? The one I am talking about is the oddball one with the following track list:

01 Whole Lot-Ta Shakin´ Goin´ On
02 Funny How Time Slips Away
03 Baby Let´s Play House (1983 overdub version)
04 Rip It Up (1983 overdub version)
05 Lovin´ Arms (1980 remix version)
06 You Asked Me To (1980 remix version)
07 She Thinks I Still Care (1980 remix version)
08 Paralyzed (1983 overdub version

This is not Elvis' Country album from 1971 which is very common. This CD seems to fetch high prices on ebay regularly, that's why I listed it, and there is an even rarer version that mistakenly had the wrong artwork on it, it had the cover from the 1971 Country album. Of course, ebay is not a good indicator of true value because of some of the crazy prices that common items can fetch on there...

Yes, I was talking about that 8 track CD too. Containing some re-mixed songs from 'Guitar Man' and 'I Was The One'.
It was orginally released with the 'Elvis Country' cover, quickly deleted and released again with the 'I Was The One' cover.

The 'Elvis Country' cover pressing is not rare (especially not when compared to the other titles you mention in your first post).
And the 'I Was The One' cover has been released at least 4 times since '88, and is very easy to get.

Here's a few more US rarities for you:
