Actually, it's in two volumes !

Elvis UK - The Ultimate Guide to Elvis Presley's British Record Releases 1956-86
by John Townson, Gordon Minto & George Richardson published in 1987.

Elvis UK2 - The Ultimate Guide to Elvis Presley's British Record Releases 1986-2002
by John Townson & Gordon Minto published in 2002.

It might be tricky to track down a copy of either these days, but good luck !

What I'm waiting for is the "CD" edition[s] !

The second one is easy to pick up, Colin. It's the first that I need. Thanks.

Gordon, along with John Townson, is actually working on a third volume of these books which will cover CD releases

I don't sorry, and Gordon only has an old battered copy himself - mine is in better condition than his!

I would say just keep looking on Ebay, although they do sell for silly money sometimes!

I'm still not clear if it includes CDs !

If it does, it might be worth a look.

If it doesn't, it won't be much of an improvement on the original Elvis UK books - just more up-to-date...

Well, it will be available. That's the main thing. :) As it stands, there is currently no accessible reference for UK vinyl released in Elvis' lifetime. This will be a very welcome addition.

It's released on September 1st. Colin, I will try to find out for you if it includes CDs.
