1975 Elvis Presley – Pure Gold


Pure Gold is a 1975 compilation album by American singer and musician Elvis Presley released as part of the RCA Records budget “Pure Gold” series of albums. Though at this point in his career, Presley was focused more on the country music market, where he had a string of chart-topping records in recent years, this collection focuses more on earlier material than recent hits. Although considered a rather mediocre compilation at best, Pure Gold nevertheless sold extremely well in the wake of Elvis’ death in August 1977.
