Elvis’ Italian Discography: The 45′s
By Bob Pakes
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 pressings have been collected here.
The Discography of Elvis’ Italian EP’s can be found HERE!

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…!
Hi Bob. Congratulations, great job! I read your message on EICC. I am one of the friends of the EICC. I hope to see you soon. I wish you all the best.
Top job again Bob.
Thanks for your work guys !
Italy had some of the nicest EPs in my opinion and some of the most uninspired 45 sleeves. Thanks for posting!
Excellent topic. Looking forward to some more soon.
Had not seen this topic for a long time, and looking at both the EPs and Singles from Italy in one go today, I must compliment you, and your Italian helpers once again. There’s so much research and presentation involved, you leave me flabbergasted, guys!
