About this deal

Impex Records is celebrating the 35th anniversary of this seminal modern audiophile classic with our final and finest collaboration with longtime partner and raconteur Jennifer Warnes.

Turning professional in 1993 Paul has performed over 11,000 shows for theatre, TV, corporate and private functions, and shared the stage with such greats such as Howard Keel, John Miles, Steve Cropper, Don Felder and Russell Watson. As the record progresses, arrangements take shape and Presley, growing more confident that a keeper take is imminent, sings with more enthusiasm. Now presented as a double LP cut at 45 RPM and pressed on 180-gram vinyl at Quality Record Pressings!

Many tracks use the "Decca tree" configuration, invented by engineers in the early 1950's using 3 Neumann M50 microphones.

Certain items can take longer to source than the estimated week, particularly during busy trading periods and may take longer to arrive at our warehouse. This career summary includes the first record Presley made with Sun Records ("That's All Right") before moving on to the RCA hits from the '50s ("Heartbreak Hotel," "Hound Dog," "Love Me Tender") and eventually to the ensuing decades. On behalf of ‘The Symphony of Dreams Charitable Trust we would like to thank you very much for your time, (extra time) and graciousness.

Throughout, Elvis is heard directing the proceedings and demonstrating a lot of "aw shucks" charm in the process, goofing with band members and laughing through his and others' flubs. Each song is extremely personal and at the same time, universal; covering subjects topical, humorous, and soulful; from the satirical to the sublime. Backing vocalists, dancers and Vegas Showgirls can all be added at an extra cost for adding extra glitz and glamour to your event, please contact us for details. And what’s more you will be able to hear a little more detail and natural sound quality courtesy of AVIDs’ in house engineering team. In short, the series reveals the "essence" of the 'The King of Rock and Roll' by documenting a great musician engrossed in the creative process.

This audiophile demonstration album contains 13 tracks which were recorded with 50 year old Neumann valve microphones. Now UK based, Paul successfully tours America, Europe, The Middle East, Asia, Japan, India and the United Kingdom. Please note that specific regulations and details may vary based on your location and the applicable laws. For serious Elvis Presley fans and anyone else interested in the creative process, Volume 2 meets the first definition of "essential" as well as the second: it's indispensable stuff! Subtitled 'The Essential Elvis Volume 2,' and dating from 1989, this set contains 20 tracks that range from gospel to rock 'n' roll, astonishing stereo takes that were supposed to have been erased or discarded.Here at AVID Entertainment we have resisted the temptation to release an Elvis album while other lesser rivals have hastily thrown together compilations to cash in on the great man’s historic legacy! The discovery of these 2-track masters comprising Stereo ‘57 – The Essential Elvis Volume 2, is nothing short of a miracle, and this 180-gram pressing cut at 45 RPM from Quality Record Pressings sounds so astonishing, your jaw will hit the floor!
