Elvis / Young Man With The Big Beat: reissue and repackage

Elvis Presley / Young Man With A Big Beat / 5-disc box set

Sony/Legacy will reissue their 2011 Elvis box set, Young Man with the Big Beat, in September.

This five-CD set – which celebrated 1956, that whirlwind year for the young Elvis – was originally a very lavish and expensive affair and included memorabilia items (ticket stubs, poster reproductions, promo photos etc) as well as a great large format booklet which took you through The King‘s schedule in 1956.

Like the 50s, 60s and 70s boxes this is almost certainly going to be reissued in one of those rather attractive and shelf-friendly ‘booksets’, so you can say goodbye to all the fancy extras, but we imagine the booklet content will be resized for the more compact format.

This repackaged re-release does allow the Elvis fan with a tight budget to pick this set up for little over £20 and even that price may well drop further. The original box was initially around £65 and it was reviewed and photographed on SuperDeluxeEdition here.

Young Man With The Big Beat is out on 15 September 2014.

The original had gold CDs. I assume this one will not, because the old ones had Nipper on top of the CDs, but the new ones have the circular, “electric” RCA logo instead. I guess that’s why they didn’t use the same CDs.


What do mean that it “almost certainly will be…”? I thought that this article was about that it is going to be just what you say it is going to be, eh?
