Elvis is Back! was the first Presley album to be released in stereo. The album's front cover shows Presley standing in front of a blue stage curtain, dressed in an Army trench coat and smiling as he glances to his left. The back cover features an image of Presley grinning; he is dressed in an Army regulation fatigue jacket and cap. The inside of the cover features fifteen photographs of Presley taken at various times during his Army service.
