Elvis - A Legendary Performer Volume 2 is a compilation album featuring recordings by Elvis Presley. As with the first volume of the series, issued in 1974, the collection was a mixture of previously released and never-before-released recordings.

The album was certified Gold on October 25, 1977 and Platinum and 2 Platinum on July 15, 1999 by the RIAA.

In this volume of the Legendary Performer series, RCA released for the first time "Harbor Lights", a ballad Presley recorded during his first session for Sun Records in July 1954. This marked the first time since the 1965 album Elvis for Everyone, in which the Sun recording "Tomorrow Night" was included, that RCA had released any "new" songs from the Sun Records archives. Other previously unreleased material included an alternate take of his 1956 hit "I Want You, I Need You, I Love You", several performances from the 1968 NBC TV special that had not been previously issued, the song "A Cane and a High Starched Collar" from the soundtrack of the 1960 film Flaming Star, and an alternate take of his 1960 recording "Such a Night". Also included were a pair of previously unreleased interview recordings. (wikipedia )
