Elvis is topping national news again after being named in CBS's "2012's Archival Music Releases." Sony's latest release, "Prince From Another Planet," is listed alongside recent compilations from The Beatles, Rolling Stones, and Creedance Clearwater Revival.

"It is remarkable that in Elvis Presley's legendary life and career that he had never performed in concert in New York City other than for television appearances," states the new post on CBS.com. "Thus, the king's shows at Madison Square Garden in 1972 is considered a major historical event, now captured on this new three-disc set."

The new album continues to receive rave reviews from national publications such as TIME, The Wall Street Journal and the "New York Daily News." Not only will fans hear both shows remixed and remastered, but they can also witness the concert through the eyes of a fan with rare footage captured during the Saturday afternoon show. The package also includes a 48-page booklet featuring brand new essays by Lenny Kaye, historic articles and clippings, plus rare interviews and photos.
