More Rave Reviews for “Young Man With The Big Beat”

September 15, 2011



More accolades for “Young Man With The Big Beat,” a new 5-CD super deluxe set celebrating Elvis Presley's 1956 RCA debut! The set has received some very positive reviews from The Bluegrass Special and The Wall Street Journal. “Young Man With The Big Beat” features 5 CDs with complete RCA master recordings, live performances, outtakes and rare interviews.

John Jurgenson with The Wall Street Journal writes, "The rise of Elvis Presley from hayseed to King in a single year—1956—remains unprecedented in American music history. This five-CD box from RCA/Legacy chronicles Presley's big year in slow motion."

"The heart of the five CD set is the two discs of Original Masters" writes David McGee with The Bluegrass Special. "Three other CDs flesh out the story of a landmark year in American music."

“Young Man With The Big Beat” is now available for pre-order at elvis.com/1956. As a bonus, pre-order customers will receive an exclusive replica 7” vinyl of Elvis’ very first RCA EP. The deluxe set will be available everywhere on September 27.
