The Complete Elvis Presley Masters is a box set covering most of American singer and musician Elvis Presley's recording career, released on October 19, 2010 by RCA Records/Legacy Recordings.[1] The box set contains 711 original master recordings as recorded during Elvis' lifetime and 103 additional rare recordings, contained on 30 compact discs, the set omits the recordings made for the 1977 Elvis in Concert TV special and album.[2]

This box set should not be confused with the Franklin Mint compilation Elvis: The Complete Masters Collection,[3][4] which does not contain the rare recordings and lacks the chronological sequencing of the songs but does come with a replica of Elvis's first 7-inch single.


Track listing[edit]

The box set also features a 240–page hardcover book with complete discography produced exclusively for this collection, researched and written by Ernst Jørgensen and Peter Guralnick, it includes an individually numbered certificate of authenticity.
