    Following is a press release issued today from BMG:

    BMG STRATEGIC MARKETING GROUP ANNOUNCES
    MULTIPLE CD, DVD RELEASES TO COMMEMORATE
    HISTORIC 50th ANNIVERSARY OF ROCK ?N? ROLL

    Product To Be Released on June 22 And Includes Official Anniversary Compilation CD ? ?Memphis Celebrates 50 Years of Rock 'n' Roll;? Signature ?ELVIS AT SUN? Recording; Two Special Elvis Presley DVDs ?ELVIS: ?68 Comeback Special -Deluxe Edition DVD? and ?ELVIS, Aloha From Hawaii- Deluxe Edition DVD?

    New York (April 26, 2004) ? On July 5, 2004, rock n? roll officially enters adulthood as fans everywhere will join to celebrate the art form?s 50th anniversary. To commemorate this milestone, BMG Strategic Marketing Group will issue four special releases that embody the inherent spirit and history of rock. This includes: the official CD of the 50th anniversary ?Memphis Celebrates 50 Years of Rock ?n? Roll? and the signature ?ELVIS AT SUN? record, as well as two comprehensive, deluxe Elvis Presley DVD box sets, ?ELVIS: ?68 Comeback Special - Deluxe Edition DVD? and ?ELVIS, Aloha From Hawaii - Deluxe Edition DVD.? All products will be released on June 22.

    To help commemorate the anniversary and promote the companion CDs and DVDs, BMG and Elvis Presley Enterprises are working with an impressive roster of marketing partners including The Memphis Convention & Visitors Bureau, Sun Studio, Hard Rock Cafe, TV Guide, Rolling Stone, QVC, Pepsi, Miller Beer, Warner Bros., and others. Together, these companies will create innovative and memorable events, promotions and partnerships to celebrate one of the most relevant anniversaries in pop culture history.

    On July 5, 1954 Elvis Presley recorded his first hit song, ?That?s All Right? at the legendary Sun Studio in Memphis, TN. Historians the world over point to this one occurrence as the official arrival of rock ?n? roll, and now, 50 years later, millions will celebrate this landmark, with the majority of the events emanating from the music?s birthplace and Elvis?s home ? Memphis. To celebrate, BMG Strategic Marketing has assembled original master recordings of quintessential rock ?n? roll music from artists who were born in Memphis, or those closely associated with it, for the official CD compilation of the anniversary ?Memphis Celebrates 50 Years of Rock n? Roll.?

    ?Memphis Celebrates 50 Years of Rock n? Roll? features a diverse array of musicians such as Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Aretha Franklin, B.B. King, Otis Redding and Dusty Springfield, among others, singing some of rock?s most indelible songs, including the song that started it all ?That?s All Right ? by Presley. (A full track listing is attached.)

    ?That?s All Right? also appears on the BMG compilation ?ELVIS AT SUN,? the definitive collection of Presley?s work at this historic studio, recorded with the legendary producer Sam Phillips. ?ELVIS AT SUN? is the single CD of all of Elvis?s Sun master recordings updated for improved audio quality, featuring many performances recorded from newly found tapes.

    ?Rock ?n? roll has been the soundtrack for several generations of fans and through the years BMG Music has been one of its foremost archivists,? said Executive Vice President of BMG Strategic Marketing, Joe DiMuro. ?Now, we are proud to be able to continue the tradition and release these storied recordings for people to rediscover where it all began.?

    In addition to the two CD releases, BMG Strategic Marketing has partnered with Elvis Presley Enterprises to distribute two comprehensive deluxe DVD box sets chronicling two of Elvis Presley?s most memorable television appearances. The DVDs ?ELVIS: ?68 Comeback Special - Deluxe Edition DVD? and ?ELVIS, Aloha from Hawaii - Deluxe Edition DVD? feature all the previously released material and an abundance of previously unreleased footage.

    The ?ELVIS: ?68 Comeback Special - Deluxe Edition DVD? is a three-disc set featuring all the material shot for Elvis Presley?s 1968 television special, which is considered one of rock ?n? roll?s greatest moments on television and one of the most magical and important moments of Elvis?s career. The original broadcast version of the special is included for historical context. The DVD set features the two complete jam session concerts and the two complete solo concerts ? all with Elvis in black leather ? that were shot as the resource for the heart of the original broadcast. These four concerts have never been released in their entirety. Also included are all takes of the material shot for the original broadcast?s two big production numbers and for the show?s opening and closing segments. Over half of the seven hours of material on this set is previously unreleased. The material is presented with newly re-mastered sound and picture.

    ?ELVIS, Aloha from Hawaii - Deluxe Edition DVD? is a two-disc set featuring all the performance material formally shot in conjunction with Elvis?s ?Aloha from Hawaii? television special ? an historic concert event seen in more than 40 countries by 1.5 billion people when it initially aired in 1973. The original American broadcast version of the show is included for historical context. The DVD set features the complete concert that was adapted for that special and the complete rehearsal concert performed two days before. Both concerts are presented with newly re-mastered sound and picture and are being released in their complete, uncut form for the first time. Also included is the raw, uncut footage shot for the ?Elvis arrives? sequence of the special?s original opening and the raw, uncut performance footage of songs recorded for the after-show session that Elvis taped as a resource of extra material for the American broadcast.

    BMG is the global music division of Bertelsmann AG, one of the world's leading media companies. BMG owns more than 200 record labels in 41 countries including Ariola, Arista Records, J Records, Jive Records, BMG Heritage, RCA Music Group and RCA Label Group - Nashville. BMG Strategic Marketing Group is a new fully integrated organization for the U.S. that brings together BMG Heritage, BMG Special Products, Strategic Marketing, Digital Licensing and Direct Response TV, as well as licensing activities on behalf of all the BMG U.S. labels. This combined structure of the BMG Strategic Marketing Group offers tremendous benefit to BMG and its businesses by increasing coordination amongst various teams and business units responsible for all levels of exploitation, across product lines and across labels.

    RIGHT ON KEV AND SOUTHPAW!!!

    It is hard to believe that here in 2004 we are STILL being treated to previously unreleased material!! ESPECIALLY since RCA had stated shortly after Elvis died that they didn't have much unreleased material to give the fans!!

    A GREAT BIG THANK YOU has to go to Ernst Jorgensen and his crew going to whatever lengths it takes to obtain "new" material for the fans to listen to!!

    KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK ERNST & CO.!!!

    TCB!
