Welcome to the Elvis Presley Record Research Database. This site exists to serve the Elvis Presley record collector community as an online guide, gallery and visual reference for all collectors and as a companion to fill the void of the all text price guides. In the case of LPs, where price guides associate a specific cover with a specific label with a specific inner sleeve; this site generalizes this considerably as having been buying over the years literally 1000s of Elvis records, there are many variations that are not documented using that method.
The focus of this site is specifically U.S. releases. It is by no means the most comprehensive and complete reference guide available; however, this site offers information that is found nowhere else. One of the goals is to provide as much detail possible, including documented and undocumented variations for regular and promotional release 45s, 78s, EPs, and LPs during the life of Elvis Presley. Releases after August 1977 will most likely not be found in this guide, save a few exceptions.
The majority of the images used on this site are from our extensive personal collection or from our vast library of Internet images collected for nearly 15 years. Other images are from various collectors and other contributors and are referenced accordingly. In rare cases, some images are manufactured from known material to serve as reference and are referenced as "mock-ups".

Attention mobile users, take collecting on the road, this site is optimized for many mobile devices. Many improvements have been made to simplify and enhance the mobile experience. If you have a mobile device, check it out.
Here is a list of sites that are using content from this site or our sister site and is using it on their site as their own. In some cases, the images that have originated from this site has even been re-branded as theirs. What none of these sites possess, and I do, are the original scans prior to being panoramically combined. This is a dangerous practice as it certainly does NOT encourage the development of this website nor is legal. It is not being suggested that these sites knowingly have taken content for their personal use as users may have submitted content to the sites. However, this list of sites are those sites whom have been contacted and have not yet corrected the problem on their end.

I am not the authority on the Elvis Presley U.S. Catalog; however, I am an extremely knowledgeable and an avid collector. I feel that I have something to offer to the collecting community.
The information on this site is only as accurate as what can be found during research. I don't pretend that everything I have documented is 100% accurate or complete. Some information may be inaccurately presented, documented, of incomplete. This may be as a result of the data collected from other sources, incorrectly typed, or conclusions that had been made on material that either had not been documented or where documentation had not been located. Where this may be the case, this information may serve as reference until corrected. Updates are always appreciated with supporting documentation.
