The new multi-part documentary Elvis Presley: The Searcher, directed by Thom Zimny and airing on HBO on April 14, pushes past the larger-than-life image of The King of Rock and Roll, portraying him instead as a man and an artist “who wanted to heal, to find that thing that was always felt to be missing, and to do it through the music.

The 3-CD deluxe edition box set offers an expanded 55-track overview of Elvis' career as heard in the film including familiar hit recordings (“Heartbreak Hotel, Are You Lonesome Tonight?"), powerful vocal performances (“That's All Right," “Tomorrow Is a Long Time," “Trouble/Guitar Man") and rare outtakes (“Suspicious Minds," “Separate Ways"), plus a bonus disc of additional recordings relevant to the film - including singles that inspired Presley (Arthur “Big Boy" Crudup's original version of “That's All Right," Odetta's gospel version of Bob Dylan's “Tomorrow is a Long Time") and two original instrumental pieces composed for the documentary by Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready.

Elvis Presley: The Searcher (The Original Soundtrack) [Deluxe] includes a 40-page book of photos, liner notes by Warren Zanes, and a producer's note from film director Thom Zimny.  (announcement)
