It does not include the packaging of that set.Personnel includes: Elvis Presley (vocals, guitar, piano, bass); Gordon Stoker (vocals, piano, background vocals); The Jordanaires, Ben Speer, Brock Speer (vocals); Scotty Moore, Chet Atkins, Hank Garland, Carl Perkins (guitar); Mahlon Clark (clarinet); Justin Gordon (saxophone); John Ed Buckner (trumpet); Elmer Schneider (trombone); Ray Siegel (tuba, acoustic bass); Floyd Cramer, Shorty Long, Marvin Hughes, Dudley Brooks, Mike Stoller, Jerry Lee Lewis (piano); Hoyt Hawkins (piano, organ, cymbals); Gordon Stoker (piano, bongos, background vocals); Clayton Perkins (acoustic bass); Neal Matthews (electric bass); D.J.

Of the 139 tracks here, precious few do not give testimony to Presley's enormous gift and enthusiasm for a wide variety of music, including pop, rock and roll, country, gospel, and rhythm and blues. From the first Sun recordings (finally presented by RCA without the annoying overlay of additional reverb) to the rushed singles session Presley cadged while on Army leave in 1958, THE COMPLETE 50'S MASTERS radiates an energy, versatility, and awe-inspiring mastery rarely approached by his contemporaries--or any other pop singer, for that matter.All the hits, b-sides, album tracks, Christmas songs, gospel, and early movie soundtrack material are here, along with a disc of alternate takes and rare live recordings. An informative and beautifully packaged 92-page booklet crammed with photographs completes one of the great box sets of the CD era.
