Elvis is everywhere, even in Eastern Europe. We all know the history of the Iron Curtain and also we know that Eastern European countries were not very tolerant towards Western popular music. But Elvis was there and the aim of this topic is to collect a little discography of releases that were issued in counties like the DDR, CCCP, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Bulgaria and Yugoslavia. Especially from Yugoslavia quite some pressings are known. Which collector is going to help me out?

Elvis' Christmas Album
Country: DDR
Year: 1971
Content: the 1970 USA Budget Camden issue of Elvis' Christmas Album

This LP is unknown to most collectors - even in Germany. It's a German made LP for use in the German Democratic Republic. There were only a few DDR produced records and this LP is the rarest made for the DDR because collectors even didn't know anything about it. The album shows large similarities to the 1971 German (West) version but there are differences in the cover title and the contents are completely different. There is no mention of the DDR on this album - label says it is produced in Hamburg with the regular producers of West German Elvis albums.

In the late 80s the Western European market was floated with low budget picture discs from Denmark and also Eastern European imports were regularly seen. So it is not that the records underneath are very rare (they are NOT very hard to find) but they are nice to have.

Yeah, there are some more. I must have Weihnachten With Elvis (EP) and Elvis, both on the AMIGA label from DDR somewhere in my vinyl collection. I will have to look for them, but do not hesitate to post them if I have not found that yet. I am curious what you come up with, Pieter... uhhh... mrsongman... :wink:

Great to see these, Bruno... although I can not help but find these cover quite ugly... beauty sometimes is in ugliness I guess... ;-)

Sorry folks, the forum software acts weird. If I try to post a message gets blanc as soon as I download a picture or try to edit a post. John, what's going on? Sorry for the double post of the A Portrait In Music cover I cannot edit it out right now because of the software problem...

Edit: I went in and got rid of the double but shouldn't the albums be the other way round?

Maybe not, but you now. I've tried it over and over again and even today my screen went blanc if I try to edit posts. Very weird... yes the pictures should be reversed, but thanx for your help, appreciated!
