A DATE WITH ELVIS (2 CD SET)
A DATE WITH ELVIS, released in July 1959, was the second of three compilation albums released by RCA while Elvis was serving in the U.S. Army. The aim of all three albums, apart from keeping Elvis' name in the public eye, was to collect recordings that had only been out on 45 rpm records in order to take advantage of the fast growing LP market. This 7" digipack 2-CD set also features stereo masters and "fly-on-the-wall" persona; recordings made during his Army time in Germany. The gatefold cover and the two labels were designed by WORLDWIDE ELVIS graphic designer of over 20 years - the great Jimmy Carpenter!. Someone else did the rest of the package. Please note that Jimmy C left the original punch hole on the cover.
