Elvis' works have been reissued sparingly in the digital era, with various themed box sets, legacy editions and budget releases all appearing in the last decade, making this the first time his entire catalogue has been made available as they were originally meant to be heard. 

The release follows the huge success of Elvis' latest album If I Can Dream, a re-working of some of his biggest hits by the Philharmonic Orchestra. The collection topped the Official Albums Chart for two weeks in November last year and was the fourth biggest album of 2015, shifting 881,000 combined units.
