Denmark 45 Discography

 

By Bob Pakes
 
 

47-9417 of een standaard coverkopieWelcome to the complete discography of ELVIS PRESLEY’S DANISH 45′s!
 
Much has been said about Elvis’ single releases from Denmark: sometimes the Danish got the A and B sides reversed, some covers have a spelling-mistake, some covers only had a front inlay and no back insert, in the 60′s RCA Denmark mainly borrowed their 45 covers from RCA Germany, and of course they only used about 3 or 4 different images of Elvis for all of their 1950′s covers. But on the other hand, and when compared to other countries, the 50′s Danish pressings at least had a picture of Elvis on the cover, and some even had 3 different covers!
These Danish pressings are not that rare, and they are not so expensive either. But it is quite a task to find them in mint condition since most covers are in a dreadfull state and usually very discoloured.
 
This topic aims to bring you the most complete collection of Elvis Presley vinyl records from Denmark.
It is by no means complete yet, and it remains a work in progress until it hopefully one day will be.
 
If you have an image that is missing from the list (cover or label), please contact me. Thanks!

    I never had Danish records in my collection; nice to see these rare sleeves.
    In the 80′s I only had a handful picture disc LP’s s from Danmark but later on it was clear that they were produced in the Netherlands. For copy right reasons Danmark was mentioned for production of these picture discs.

  10. I would never collect these 45s from Denmark…but I do enjoy
    looking at them…no matter how badly the printing of the sleeves
    was…they have a certain amateuristic charm..!
