Growing up, I was always aware of what Elvis had been. I knew him as the 'King', one of the earliest 'rockers' and one of the most influential people in the history of music. Despite this, I had heard very little of his music so whilst in a library, I borrowed this CD. I was so amazed, I immediatly bought it as I wanted to listen to this over and over again. Put simply, his music is amazing! The energy he creates and the sound of the music is just a joy. The lyrics and rhythm seem totally unique and his vocal of the title track is one of the all-time classics. Although the music is not as complex as music from mid/late-60s onwards, it is still remarkable and brings a smile to your face. I can see why he was such a revolution! This CD can be considered a 'greatest hits' compilation as it brings together so many of the greats (33 of them!). This CD would make a great introductory CD of him but is also worthwhile to have in the more experienced collection. Fantastic! Long live the KING!
