Today (August 16th) marks the 36th anniversary of the death of Elvis Presley. Elvis died of a heart attack on August 16th, 1977 at his Graceland mansion in Memphis, Tennessee. He was 42-years-old. Last night hundreds of fans gathered at Graceland to begin the annual candlelight vigil for the “King Of Rock N’ Roll” who would be 78 years old.

In commemoration of the anniversary, the new triple-disc Elvis At Stax collection featuring tracks cut during his 1973 sessions at the legendary Memphis studio, has been released. Also, all of “The King’s” 1950’s albums have been digitally remastered for iTunes as The Complete 50’s Albums Collection and features all nine of the decade’s releases: Elvis Presley (1956), Elvis (1956), Loving You (soundtrack, 1957), Elvis’ Christmas Album, (1957), Elvis’ Golden Records (1958), King Creole (soundtrack, 1958), For LP Fans Only (1959). A Date With Elvis (1959), and 50,000,000 Elvis Fans Can’t Be Wrong: Elvis’ Gold Records, Volume 2 (1959).

Do you remember where you were when you heard the news? I was playing wiffle ball in a friends backyard when his mom came out of the house to tell us.
