I have a copy of the still sealed promo and I'm trying to decide whether to open this and use it or if I'd be able to get enough money for it to purchase the final retail version. It doesn't have the separate book that lists the songs.
I copied and pasted the below from a previous listing here:
ELVIS PRESLEY - "The Complete Masters" - Thirty (30) Full Length CD Boxed Set!
PROMO VERSION - VERY RARE! STILL SEALED!!
The definitive collection of Elvis Presley’s complete master recordings, includes ALL 711 master recordings as released during Elvis’ lifetime, mastered from the original analog master tapes.
Each recording has been carefully restored to achieve the best sound reproduction ever without compromising the audio quality of the original master. The collection also contains 103 additional rare recordings. Complete details of the final retail release (with different packaging than this promo advance) can be found at http://www.CompleteElvis.com
NOTE: THIS IS THE PROMO-ONLY LIMITED ADVANCE VERSION OF THE BOX, SENT OUT ONLY TO MUSIC JOURNALISTS IN ADVANCE OF THE RETAIL RELEASE. IT HAS THE SAME 814 SONGS ON 30 CDs BUT COMES IN SPECIAL PACKAGING WITHOUT THE BOOK.
