Information: The previously unreleased Tonight's All Right For Love and an alternate take of I Love You Because were featured on Elvis - A Legendary Performer, Volume 1. Until this album, Tonight's All Right For Love had been available only in non-English speaking countries. Also included were unreleased versions of Love Me, Tryin' to Get to You and Are You Lonesome Tonight from the 1968 TV Special, Elvis; two excerpts from the Elvis Sails EP, and seven previously released recordings. Elvis - A Legendary Performer, Volume 1 came with a 16-page booklet, The Early Years. The album jacket had a die-cut window that allowed the photo on the cardboard innersleeve to be seen. Later pressings had the standard cover. In 1978 RCA released an experimental picture disc using the contents of this LP.

Sales of Elvis - A Legendary Performer, Volume 1 exceeded $1 million and a Gold Record was certified by the RIAA on January 8, 1975. The album had a 14-week stay on Billboard's Top LPs chart, peaking at #43. After Elvis's death, the album recharted for another 14 weeks, this time reaching #62.
