ELVIS COUNTRY: LEGACY EDITION is the first Elvis release of 2012, a year which marks the 35th anniversary of the artist’s passing and a year-long celebration of his life and legacy.  A full schedule of catalog reissues and compilations are planned by longtime Elvis archivists/co-producers Ernst Mikael Jørgensen and Roger Semon.  

Included in the new package on CD one is the original 12-song Elvis Country (subtitled “I’m 10,000 Years Old”), which debuted January 23, 1971, on the Billboard 200 album chart.  The album peaked at #12, spent 21 weeks on the chart, and was certified RIAA gold.  Three bonus tracks are drawn from the original recording sessions of June and September 1970 (more info below).  On CD two, from the June sessions, comes the original 11-song Love Letters From Elvis (chart debut June 26, 1971, peak position # 33, 15 weeks on the chart), also with three bonus tracks from the original sessions.
