September 26, 2011

Today, as the highly anticipated 5-CD super deluxe set “Young Man With The Big Beat” hits stores, it is making waves for a previously unreleased version of Elvis Presley’s hit single “Love me Tender.” In this unreleased version that can now be heard on RollingStone.com, Elvis is performing in Shreveport, Louisiana, in front of an audience of 7,000 screaming fans.

On the Rolling Stone website, viewers can read a recent interview with Mikael Jørgensen, who compiled the new box set and is the author of “Elvis Presley: A Life in Music.” When asked about Elvis in 1956, Jørgensen states, “What happened in ’56 was one artist – Elvis – being so dominant that he was Number One half of the year on the singles chart."

“Young Man With The Big Beat” is now available at ShopElvis.com.
