This 6 track promo CD is presented in a fold-out digipak. The front cover depicts the “Platinum Box Set” cover , however , it is a close up of Elvis’ head. At the bottom of the front cover , a word “Sampler” is printed. The inside cover with a white background contains a brief synopsis of the “Platinum - A Life In Music” box set. The rear cover on white background lists the songs included on the CD along with the recording data for each track. Under the song titles it states : “Platinum includes full length versions of the above edited highlights”. It also states in capital letters : “For Promotional Use Only - Not For Sale”. The picture CD itself looks exactly the same as the second disc of the commercial box set. However , on the left side of the disc , it is printed “SAMPLER Platinum 001” instead of “CD 2” as it is on the commercial disc.
