Elvis: A Legendary Performer Volume 2 is a compilation album featuring recordings by American singer and musician 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.[1]


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 1965 that RCA had released any unissued recordings from the Sun Records archives. Other previously unreleased material on the album 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". A pair of previously unreleased interview recordings were also included on this album.

The Legendary Performer series would continue with Elvis: A Legendary Performer Volume 3, which was released in 1978.
