This release is a part of a special package that was given to the attendees of the Special VIP Reception held on August 16th 2012 between 5pm and 5:30pm at the Fedex Forum in Memphis, Tennessee before the 35th Anniversary Concert. The event was hosted by Priscilla Presley and Lisa Marie Presley.

This package also contains a replay card for radio disc jockeys to comment on the promotional program contained on the disc. The inside of the cover contains the tracks included on the CD and instructions to the radio stations. The actual radio special contained on the CD is nothing exceptional or unusual.

BMG China has done it again and so far has been the only country that has really and truly decided to promote the 30th Anniversary of Elvis' passing. The history behind this SPECIAL "PROMOTIONAL NOT FOR SALE EDITION CD" is VERY, VERY UNUSUAL from what we can gather from our sources. Apparently BMG CHINA had scheduled a special 2 CD set for the 30TH called 30 YEARS AFTER - FRESH AND NEW (NOTE: this is the correct title WITHOUT "STILL" included!). It was to contain 60 tracks with all of them REMASTERED and REMIXED and with possibly at least half of them either alternate takes or mastered so different that they sound like different takes. Unfortunately we do not know what the original song listings were ! As of this posting it is known that some (if not all of the 25 on this CD) fall into the "different" category. Anyway, apparently BMG U.S. decided to withdraw permission for the regular CD's release but some copies of the promo DID get out (source: e-mail).

The design and fonts used on this release is very similar to the promo CDs from BMG Asia and China. Again, as a result it is not possible to determine the authenticity of this release. However, it does not show up very frequently on the collectors’ market.
