Young Man With the Big Beat Out Now

One of the most important archival music releases in recent memory landed in stores this week and I wanted to take a moment to mention it. The five-disc Young Man With the Big Beat from Sony Legacy is the ultimate celebration of the historic year Elvis Presley had in 1956. The beautiful oversized box includes all of the 1956 RCA master recordings
remastered, outtakes, live performances (including an entire unreleased concert) and rare interviews. It also includes a near 100 page coffee-table book and various memorabilia such as concert poster reproductions and even a copy of the Venus Room Flyer from Elvis' infamous 56' New Frontier Hotel Appearance. For those who can't splurge for the box-set, Sony is also offering a condensed 2CD Legacy Edition of Presley's legendary first album. Both collections are invaluable and offer up some of the best music ever recorded in deluxe packages that are essential for Elvis fans or for anyone interested in the year rock really exploded.
