Yes, he was. This lp collection is one of the first Elvis slabs I bought and it’s interesting for great sound enchanced by new remix. Some says these are late 70’s re-recordings of ‘Kings’ classic tunes but I’m not sure. What I know is that this is cool collection with great sound quality so even if you’re feelin’ overstuffed with Elvis stuff check this one anyway. Vinyl rip by Surfadelic. Dig!!!
