A Date With Elvis

Released:Jul. 24, 1959

A continuation of the For LP Fans Only approach – ten previously uncollected tracks (on LP anyway), including five more Sun sides (only “I Don’t Care If The Sun Don’t Shine” remained un-reissued on album now), but this time with a deluxe gatefold cover, complete with army photos of Elvis and a calendar showing just how many more days it would be until he returned to civilian life.
