Rock And Roll Volume 1 + 2


Housed in a stunning slipcase are two Australian albums, "Rock 'n' On" volume 1 and volume 2. In the late 1980's these albums where released on CD, but the sound quality was not great, and they did not have the original artwork. These cd's are very hard to find now. Now, for the very first time, both volume 1 and volume 2 are released in a 6 panel digi-pack with the original artwork from the original vinyl releases ! And.....each volume contains lots of hard to find outtakes and alternate versions ! A superb collection for every Elvis fan. The perfect Christmas gift !

Exactly the kind of superior alternate artwork that should have been used for the Today FTD vinyl.

Instead, this abysmal and incongruous sleeve was 'produced'.

I kinda like the FTD version with pictures of Elvis from the time he made the recordings. Oh well.

Hasn’t all this stuff been lifted from the FTDs?
