Strictly Elvis is an extended play (EP) by American singer and musician Elvis Presley released in January 1960. It peaked at number one in the number-one EPs chart in the United Kingdom and was five weeks in the number-one, until it was superseded by Expresso Bongo, which became number-one in April 23, 1960.[1]

An EP, also called "Strictly Elvis", had been issued in the USA in January 1957. This contained a completely different set of tracks; it was not issued in the UK until 1964, when it came out under the title "Elvis For You, Volume 2". The UK "Strictly Elvis" EP had no direct US equivalent.
