Biography

Elvis Aaron Presley is one of the biggest-selling artists of all-time, but mere numbers cannot begin to explain the colossal cultural impact he had in the mid-20th Century. He was a central figure in the transformation of the grey, conservative 50s into the technicolor 60s through the liberalizing effect of rock and pop music. Frank Sinatra had proved extremely popular in the 40s with young ... Read more in Amazon's Elvis Presley Store

Format: Audio CD
this is the type of album that people who let on not to like elvis will want. Its got rock, soul, and that unmistakable gospel sound. Whether you want to dance and shake to "all shook up" or shed a tear with "in the ghetto" this album is for you. If you dont have it- get it!

If you've ever thought of sampling the late great King of Rock 'n'roll but haven't known where to start, I can highly recommend this excellent compilation. It covers all the bases, the early Sun sides, the late rockers and the wonderful singles, Memphis sessions and live Vegas stuff in between. Add to this Peter Guralnick's superb two volume biography, and you'll be away. Awesome!

Talking about a hard job to do! 6 April 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Imagine having to pick from all of Elvis' great songs and compile a 3 cd set. Tough job. Now imagine taking the "best" songs from that set and making a single cd. Difficult to say the least. This is a great collection for novice fans, general music lovers, and diehards like me who buy just about every Elvis CD that comes out. Great packaging and great sound. Sure I already have the box set...But like I said this is a great set for beginners and the general public. I like that it's not totally 1956 focused like a lot of greatest hits packages have been over the years.
This is sure to please!

A definitive one CD recap of Elvis' career 24 Aug 2001
By Neal C. Reynolds - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Okay, so there's lot a great material not on this compilation. But there is a fairly even number of songs from each of the major periods of his career. It's rather hard to choose a definite dividing line between periods, but basically, The first six songs are the young Elvis, and include "That's All Right" and "Baby, Let's Play House", which don't appear on as many collections as the others. 7-13 cover development of his voice and style, including the less often heard "One Night," "Trouble," and "Reconsider, Baby". 14-18 represents a return to the type of song the younger Elvis sang, but with a developed style...all of these being less commonly heard: "Little Sister", "Return to Sender", "(You're the) Devil In Disguise", "It Hurts Me", and "Big Boss Man". Cuts 19-25 include the fully mature Elvis with "In the Ghetto", "Only the Strong Survive", "Polk Salad Annie", "An American Trilogy", "Burning Love", and "Promised Land" along with the longer version of "Suspicious Minds". So this is an excellant first Elvis CD for your collection, but even if you already have one or two CD's, you'll probably find that you're missing about 2/3 of the material available on this collection.

Great Overview Of Career 31 Aug 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I'm a life long Elvis fan. I own all the box sets including Artist Of the Century And I still bought this collection because it edits the 3 Cd set down to (argueably) the best of the best.
This is the best single disc overview of Elvis' career currently available. This is what I put in my player when I want to hear the very best of the Hundreds of songs Elvis recorded.

Elvis sings new and songs he has sung before on this cd. 31 Mar 2001
By Stephen Verhaeren - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The first two songs are on this cd was not recored for RCA (but they are on here anyways). The songs are That's All Right and Baby, Let's Play House. Elvis recored those songs for Sun Studios.
Heartbreak Hotel is on this too. And it's mostly on his other cds (But not on Christmas cd). It whould be odd if you bought any Elvis Presley cd and Heartbreak Hotel was not on it.
There are aslo rare songs that on this cd, like In The Ghetto, Little Sister, Can't Help Falling In Love, and Polk Salad Annie. Aslo on this cd is Burning Love and It Hurts Me.
If you know somebody that doesn't have this cd and it is a big Elvis fan. There you go.

A no-effort CD. This is by all means NOT 5 stars 6 Dec 2000
By E. Lambeth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Elvis IS the greatest Artist of the Century. Nice title. But you wouldn't know it by the collection of songs on this CD. 25 songs...24 if you consider that "Promised Land" is included twice (probably due to it being on the 'Men In Black' soundtrack). Out of those 24 songs, a whopping THREE SONGS came from his 70's collection...which many people feel is a LOT better than his 50's collection. Any big Elvis fan will tell you that part of his appeal is listening to how his music, voice, and delivery changed over the years. Songs from the 50's are nothing like the early 60's, which are nothing like the late 60's, which are nothing like the early 70's, which are nothing like the late 70's. This CD doesn't give a thorough chronical of the hits that spanned his career. Rather, it gives a lot of songs that get tons of radio airplay, and forgets about the songs that REALLY depict the greatness of Elvis. This album won't show you the country side of Elvis or the Gospel. It's another "Best Of" with a different title. And trust me...this is NOT a "Best Of". It doesn't have the deep, soulful songs like "I've Lost You" or "Tomorrow Never Comes" or "We Can Make the Morning". You won't find the fun, rocking songs like "Paralyzed" (my favorite song from the 50's), "When my blue moon turns to Gold again" or "Let Me. You won't find "Such a Night", "Witchcraft" or "Please Don't Drag that string around". You want a beautiful love balad? Try "Something Blue". "Gently". "Love Letters". Even from the movies..."Puppet On a String" or "Suppose". From the late mid to late 60's, you won't hear "Long, Black Limousine" or "Tomorrow is a long time".
BMG, in their efforts to put out a money maker, has managed to put 0 efforts into their work. You call this a tribute to the greatest? Maybe if he was the greatest at being lazy while making tons of money. This is NOT a fitting tribute to the KING.
