ELVIS PRESLEY | ALOHA FROM HAWAII VIA SATELLITE (180 GRAM AUDIOPHILE VINYL/LIMITED EDITION)
Elvis Aaron Presley was born during the Great Depression into a
poor family in Mississippi. Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of ELVIS PRESLEY’s
Historic #1 Lp-Televised Concert from 1973. They moved to Memphis during the
early fifties, and as a struggling young truck driver, he cut some demos at Sun
Studios as a gift for his beloved mother Gladys. These initial songs, of which
he had only paid a few dollars to record, would become the catalyst that would
kick-start the beginnings of a soon to be worldwide superstar unlike the world
has ever known.
The folks at RCA Victor knew that this young fellow named Elvis
was destined for superstardom. They quickly bought out his contract
and signed the legend to a long-term deal, and his first RCA
single Heartbreak Hotel l forever etched “The King Of Rock And Roll”
trademark to his name.
Over the next three decades, Elvis Presley would release dozens
of hit albums and tons of smash singles, spend time in the Army, star in over
35 top charting films, as well as sell out concert tours around the states and
Canada making him the most successful solo artist of all time. In 1968, his
career ignited even further thanks to his Elvis TV Special on NBC and
another series of hit singles and career making albums like his country soul
smash From Elvis In Memphis (Friday Music 4155).
As the seventies began, Elvis was selling out shows all around
the country and began to plan out a series of groundbreaking performances in
Hawaii. His show on January 14, 1973 was broadcast live via satellite across
over forty countries and would become the most watched televised event by a
solo artist in history. It’s been said that over one billion viewers enjoyed
his incredible concert! The show was choreographed and staged like nothing ever
before and featured a multitude of musicians, the Hawaiian Islands, the
appreciative and excited audience, and of course, The King Of Rock And Roll -
The multi-platinum Aloha From Hawaii Via Satellite set
also was a blockbuster as it hit the top number one spot on the charts in 1973,
making this one of the biggest albums of his career as well as one of the most
revered live concert albums of all time proving once again Elvis Presley’s
career was unlike any other in music history.
