Issued in 2001 by BMG UK & Ireland to promote the “The 50 Greatest Hits” 2 CD set and the “That’s The Way It Is – Special Edition” movie release.
This 4 track enhanced CD comes in a cardboard picture sleeve. This release was given free with the purchase of “The Sunday Times” newspaper – May 13 - 2001. The front page of “The Sunday Times” newspaper contained a reference to this enhanced CD package inside the newspaper. In addition , this particular issue of the newspaper came with “The Sunday Times Culture” magazine. The magazine contained an Elvis picture on the cover and one article devoted to the King and a chance to “win a fantastic trip from Tupelo to Hawaii”. The front picture of the sleeve is identical to the front picture of the commercial 2 CD set – “The 50 Greatest Hits”. The front cover contains the “The Sunday Times” logo as well as the following phrase : “Four track enhanced CD taken from The 50 Greatest Hits & Elvis , That’s The Way It Is , Special Edition”. The rear of the sleeve contains color pictures of the cover of the “The 50 Greatest Hits” 2 CD set and the poster of “Elvis That’s The Way It Was – Special Edition”. In addition , the 4 tracks contained on the CD are also listed. Under the picture of the poster , the following phrase is printed : “Includes The Promotional Video For Suspicious Minds Taken From Elvis , That’s The Way It Is , Special Edition , Currently In Cinemas Nationwide”. However , at this time the showing of the movie was over. I guess it was another perfectly timed promotion campaign. The sleeve also contains the BMG and RCA logos. The enhanced CD contains white background with red and black print. The title of the CD is printed at the top of the label. The CD also contains the “Sunday Times” and BMG/RCA logos. In addition , the famous “Promotional Use Only - Not For Sale” phrase is also printed.
