    Could they fit that many tracks on an LP then? They didn't seem to, if so...I think LP capacity increased to about 40 minutes or so in the '70s and '80s, but I'm not sure 16 or more tracks would have fit on the '50s ones. Anyone know for sure?

    And, yeah, RCA messed up the marketing of Elvis and certainly the release of his meterial right from the very beginning. It just got rapidly worse from there. And as big as he was, think of how much more of a presence (critically, as well) he would have been had his songs been packaged with a little more thought...
    I'm a roving roustabout...

    I don´t think it´s about time in the LPs but because of SINGLE importance. In the mid-50´s, the single was the true seller, not the album. So they prefered to keep the hits for the single releases; that´s why HEARTBREAK, HOUND DOG, DON´T BE CRUEL, ALL SHOOK UP or JAILHOUSE ROCK didn´t appear in their "own" LP at the time (except, later, in the 1958 classic , "Elvis´ Golden Records").

    I really like your tracklist for the first 1956 double LP!

    ELvis 50's Songs are extremely short, seven on each side can fit I guess... Not sure, I was born in the eighties. But if not we can leave out from the first album "I love you Because" and "Im gona sit RIgth down and cry over you" put them out on an E.P. and leave out "Hound Dog and "Dont Be CRuel" of the second L.P.

    Yes Because of single importance I change all the B sides (just my point of view), yet, the fact that albums were not that important that doesn?t mean that in time they became important indeed. What I mean is, just as an example, every time they made those lists of: greatest rock albums, Elvis Presley (the first album) is the only one Elvis LP that apears, and in a very low position, but that is undersandable if we think that the best stuff was released as a single, and his the album were not planed as artists planed them latter on (mis 60's till now), so my intention is to make up the best posible track list to upgrade those albums, so they could have a value as and Album itself and not just a bunch of songs together.
