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

3.0 out of 5 stars "Steamroller Blues" 5 May 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Now I would consider myself as one Elvis' biggest fans, buying virtually every CD whether or not I have all the songs. But this latest mainstream release is starting to make me feel a little bit deflated. Disc one is very uninspired, 4 of the songs were on the last CD (Love,Elvis-which itself represented another predictable effort) being only released a couple of months ago. This CD was supposed to represent moments in Elvis' life (according to the liner notes)and is categorised. The first track for instance is "Trying To Get To You" a studio take, but is under the category "On Stage". "A Little Less Conversation" gets another encore. With the latest single release, this is about the 4th time this song has cropped up since it's World Cup debut in 2002, that does not include the "30 No.1 Hits (Special Edition)" in 2003 with both the standard and extended versions on it or the "30 No.1 Hits" DVD.
My interest though was in Disc 2, which has the rare and unreleased recordings. Unfortunately, it seems that it was put together in a hurry and doesn't have any kind of direction. It runs for just over 20 minutes and has just 8 tracks, 3 which have been released before. The unreleased portion of the CD is very good including a private recording of "Baby What You Want Me To Do" and "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" which ironically was recorded at Linda Thompsons House.
To conclude, if this was a school report, it would read "Could Do Better"

5.0 out of 5 stars Elvis By The Presleys 4 Oct 2008
Format:Audio CD
OK, for starters this product is a wee bit of a let-down because it features some of the tracks we've previously heard before on other Elvis albums ie those that are on 'Elvis 30 #1 Hits' and 'Elvis 2nd To None'. Other than that it's amazing. Buy it!

Of course I didn't buy it myself. I owned it once but, sadly, Disc 1 got scratched and lost and I only had Disc 2. But with the help of YouTube, I managed to find most of the sonmgs on this album and download them to my computer then put them on my Walkman.

5.0 out of 5 stars The King in All His Glory! 7 May 2005
By Sherrlon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is a great collection in great sound. It's not the same ol' greatest hits type package with Hound Dog, Don't Be Cruel, Blue Suede Shoes, etc. Those are all great songs but this album expands the horizons for the casual listener and introduces songs such as "I Got a Woman," "It's Over," "You'll be Gone," "My Way," and "I've Got a Feeling in My Body." You even get a 1977 live version of Blue Christmas. In other words - this CD contains the songs that are cherished and loved by the diehard fans such as myself. These are the songs that "hook" you on Elvis. And once you're hooked you can never shake it.

Elvis is the best entertainer in the history of music and it's about time he got the respect is due.

5.0 out of 5 stars A nice introduction to the real music of Elvis Presley. 6 May 2005
By S. Galvin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
New and casual fans: This 2-CD set might just be the best introdution for those who are interested in something different than a typical "greatest hits" set. While some songs also appear on the superb sets "ELV1S 30 #1 Hits"(E1) and "Elvis: 2nd to None"(E2), well over twenty tracks do not. Repetition is hard to avoid when buying Elvis albums, so it is good to see that even with dulicates, there is plenty of great music for the money.
The two greatest hits sets I mentioned are more consistent and probably contain better material overall, but they lack gems "Elvis by the Presleys" contains such as Vernon Presley's favorite "Trying To Get To You", the fun romp "Got A Lot O' Livin' To Do!", the delicate vocals of "Indescribably Blue", the heartfelt songs "It's Over", "Separate Ways" and "Welcome To My World" and performances that showcase Elvis' rhythm & soul in "Steamroller Blues" and "I Got A Feelin' In My Body".
Buy E1 and E2 for the most recognizable hits, buy "Elvis By The Presleys" if you would like to learn more about Elvis through his music or are interested in exploring a vast and enjoyable catalog of well over 800 studio, soundtrack and live recordings.
For those that already own the songs: Its your call as to whether or not you buy this, but please don't write a negative review simply because you as an individual don't need to buy the album.
Also, keep in mind some retailers offer bonus material that might just make this enjoyable release worth your while...

4.0 out of 5 stars Great! 18 May 2005
By Fluffy Sausage - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Although I am not a big fan of repackaged material; all of these cuts can be found on other discs in some shape or form - this is a killer 2 disc set for newbies. It provides a very nice, well-rounded perspective of the King's career.

Everyone concentrates on the 1950's Elvis when in fact some of his best performances were recorded in the 70's. Here you'll find a nice cross-section of material from all three decades of his recording career.

One can't help but wonder what type of music Elvis would be recording today if he was still alive. Music has changed so dramatically since he passed away in 1977 but Elvis had such a great ear for talent, style and sound that I am sure there would have been some exceptional music coming out of Memphis these past 25 or so years. Unfortuantely the operative words here are "would have" or should I say "should have"?

Nonetheless, the price for this set is excellent and if you are looking to be introduced to an area of the King's work that you might not be familiar with or if you just want to round out your collection - this would be a great set to pick-up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another solid release 16 May 2005
By A Fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Sure most of these songs have been released on other albums and sure I wish they would include some previously unreleased alternate takes, but this is still a solid CD. They were trying to make this sort of a musical bio, and they did not do a bad job. This CD approximates the ups and downs of his life. I do want to warn potential purchasers that the bonus disk includes some foul language. They include some studio banter before Too Much Monkey Business and Elvis lets a few cuss words out. I wonder if this and the cover of the "Love, Elvis" CD (where he is tonguing a woman) isn't part of an effort to try to make Elvis' image "edgy".

1.0 out of 5 stars More of the Same 3 May 2005
By The Historian - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Don't Waste Your Time Just To Get New Liner Notes.

Ever since BMG purchased RCA years ago, the recirculation of Elvis' material has bubbled over. They are not giving us anything new - just the same stuff with different packaging. This way people will feel compelled to have new liner notes and pictures.

Of course, being business-only-minded, they want your money - nothing else. And, unfortunately people are giving it to them.

How many times do I need "Hound Dog" or "Jailhouse Rock"? If you have it once, then you have it - period. I would rather have Elvis singing "Bad Moon Rising" which he did in concert but hasn't been released, yet.

If you want to have Elvis' proper commercial releases then don't buy this drivel. Instead, get the boxed sets:

50's Masters
60's Masters
Command Performances
Amazing Grace
70's Masters

The only excellent releases by BMG (now Sony BMG) are "Tiger Man" and the "1968 Comeback Special." These mentioned cds will give you all that you need.

I do appreciate BMG trying to get younger fans to appreciate Elvis' music but enough is enough. And this is now more than enough.
