By on 21 December, 2011


 

Rock ‘n’ Roll legend Elvis Presley has been nominated for a posthumous Grammy Award, adding to the 14 nominations he received during his lifetime!

 

His album, Young Man With the Big Beat: The Complete ’56 Elvis Presley Masters (a five-CD box set of the star’s early recordings), has been tipped to win in the Best Historical Album category by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences.

The collection, put out to celebrate the 55th anniversary of Presley‘s 1956 RCA debut, was released this autumn by Sony‘s Legacy Recordings.

Songs in the vast collection include studio recordings of such early hits as Blue Suede Shoes and Lawdy, Miss Clawdy, plus live tracks, outtakes and interviews!

Legacy will follow-up on the Young Man collection in January with Elvis Country – a two-disc compilation of Presley‘s country recordings.

 

The Young Man release will go up against albums by stars including Sir Paul McCartney and Chris Strachwitz at the ceremony, which will be held in Los Angeles on the 12th February, 2012.

Presley has so far won three times for his gospel recordings, which included How Great Thou ArtHe Touched Me and the live recording of How Great Thou Art.

He died in 1977 at the age of 42.
