Elvis Aaron Presley was born during the Great Depression into a poor family in Mississippi. They moved to Memphis during the early fifties, and as a struggling young truck driver, Elvis cut some demos as a gift for his beloved mother Gladys. These initial songs, of which he had only paid a few dollars to record, would become the catalyst that would kick-start the beginnings of a soon to be worldwide superstar unlike the world has ever known.
The folks at RCA Victor knew that this young fellow named Elvis was destined for superstardom. They quickly signed the legend to a long-term deal, and his first RCA single Heartbreak Hotel forever etched "The King Of Rock And Roll" trademark to his name. He would eventually become the most successful solo artist of all time!
From the remainder of the 1960's into the late 1970's, Elvis Presley would release many more hit albums, smash singles and movies before his untimely passing in 1977. Ever proving that he was indeed on top of his game, RCA Victor awarded their superstar artist and his fans with the King's fifth greatest hits collection Elvis' Gold Records Volume 5.
Featuring a treasure trove of his most familiar top charting hit singles Elvis' Gold Records Volume 5 went on to achieve gold status and become one of his most memorable titles in his huge arsenal of masterful rock and roll albums.
Thanks to his finest rock smashes like Burning Love, Moody Blue, In the Ghetto and his landmark Memphis session groover Suspicious Minds, this collection of Elvis Presley's biggest hits were just what the fans were screaming for, and the entire album was built around the framework of his rocking trademark sound. The 1984 album also was another blockbuster for The King truly proving once again that his career was unlike any other in music history.
Elvis' Gold Records Volume 5 also included some of his finest ballads like Kentucky Rain and his monumental NBC TV Comeback Special smash If I Can Dream. In total, the album showcases ten important Elvis Presley hit recordings which have truly gone on to become definitive classics by any measure of popular music.
