Elvis Presley – A Legendary Performer - Volume 1
Elvis: A Legendary Performer Volume 1 is a greatest hits collection by Elvis Presley issued in 1974 by RCA Records. It features 14 tracks, which includes twelve songs and two interviews with Presley. It was certified Gold on January 8, 1975 and Platinum and 2x Platinum on July 15, 1999 by the RIAA. The album opens with his first recording from 1954, "That's All Right", the song that started his recording career at Sun Records.
Ultimately, four volumes of Presley's music were issued over the next decade in the A Legendary Performer series, with increasing amounts of previously unissued material. This first volume included previously unreleased live performances of several songs from Presley's 1968 TV special, an alternate version of his first known recording for Sun Records ("I Love You Because"), and the first American release of "Tonight's All Right for Love" from the European version of G.I. Blues. The two interview recordings were originally released by RCA Victor in 1958 as the EP, Elvis Sails.
