The 50th anniversary of Elvis Presley’s groundbreaking 1968 NBC-TV “comeback” special is commemorated with the release today of a 2LP vinyl presentation of The King In The Ring.

Originally released on vinyl for the first time earlier this year in a limited edition run for Record Store Day, this 2LP set showcases the standout, intimate “sit down” sets from the ’68 special. These laid-back live performances were recorded in the round before a small audience and featured a powerful ensemble, including guitarist Scotty Moore and drummer D.J. Fontana, both part of Elvis’ original classic backing band.

The anniversary of this electrifying moment in rock n’ roll history will continue into 2019 when NBC and Ken Ehrlich Productions team up for a 2-hour primetime television tribute to the original special.
