Elvis Presley 45 rmps, 33.3 LPs and 10 inches of 78.
Official Release, Fan Club Release, Record Clubs and Sublicensed and then the Private Sector Collector market.
the 1990s, when BMG took over RCA was when Elvis Presley was packaged as an Artist of Consequence.
CDs and DVDs replaced LPs and VHS/Beta.
I collected everything Elvis from the late 1970s to the middle 1990s and then I became selective – and collecting became merely shopping online.
