The first disc features Elvis first recordings at Sun Studio, the second, third and fourth discs contain Elvis' entire output with RCA during the 50s. The fifth disc contains outtakes and unreleased recordings. With 140 tracks on the five discs, Elvis' classics are compiled together to create a musical journey through Elvis' early years and his rise to fame. The 1950s was the decade in which Elvis went from unknown Memphis boy to superstardom and its his early releases that can be credited with his assension to the top and his crowning as the king of rock 'n roll.
