Elvis’ Italian Discography: The 45′s

 

By Bob Pakes
 
 

45N 1088 Elvis and Sophia 04 (february 1958, photo by Bob Willoughby)
 
Welcome to the Complete Discography of the 45′s that were released by RCA Italy in the 50′s and 60′s!
 
The Italian singles from the 50′s and early 60′s were released with many different covers, sometimes up to 7 different picture-covers per title.
 
The goal of this topic is to collect all titles/pressings in one place, and it will remain ‘a work in progress’ until all known Italian 45′s pressings have been collected here.

The Discography of Elvis’ Italian EP’s can be found HERE!

  1. That’s a lot of Italian candy in one throw, Bob! A pitty RCA Italia didn’t do much design on the singles, compared to the ‘out of this world’ EPs released by them in the 50s ! Still, several I had not seen before. Excellent job, guys! Free pizzas are on their way to the Echoes HQ…!

    Italy had some of the nicest EPs in my opinion and some of the most uninspired 45 sleeves. Thanks for posting!
