"50,000,000 Elvis Fans Can't Be Wrong Elvis Gold Records - Volume 2":

the most "covered" Elvis album of all-time!

Throughout his career Elvis was considered to be a Singles artist rather than an Albums artist. This view was consistent with Singles being the dominant recorded music format during his first period of chart dominance. Singles dominated sales until 1968 when Albums outsold Singles for the first time.

Despite Elvis' as a Singles artist, a number of his albums have become iconic, due to either their recordings (eg. From Elvis In Memphis) or a combination of their music and cover artwork (eg, Elvis Presley; Elvis: '68 Comeback Special).

In this "pictorial" Spotlight, it is the latter element we focus on.

There are three Elvis albums particularly notable for their iconic cover artwork status:
  • Elvis Presley (Elvis' 1st album)
  • 50,000,000 Elvis Fans Can't Be Wrong Elvis Gold Records - Volume 2
  • Elvis: The '68 Comeback Special
And the subject of this EIN Spotlight is an Elvis album cover which has been replicated by other artists many times........... 50,000,000 Elvis Fans Can't Be Wrong Elvis Gold Records - Volume 2, with its iconic Elvis in Gold Suit imagery.

The following cross-section of album covers show that Elvis' influence on both mainstream and alternative artists is prolific.
