This box set is FANTASTIC! Personally i think it's better the last years box set 'Today, Tomorrow and Forever'. Disc one consists of unreleased stereo masters from the 50's, Well when it says stereo its really a type of recording called 'binaural' recording, with is basically two tapes recording in tandem which makes Elvis and a few instruments on one channel and everyone else on the other channel. The sound quality in disc 1 is MINDBLOWING, it sound like elvis is singing in your house, the sound just jumps out the speakers at you (best songs are: Treat Me Nice, Jailhouse Rock and Young and Beautiful).
Disc 2 is good, this consists of unreleased movie takes from the movies GI BLues, Flamming Star, Wild In The Country and Blue Hawaii. The sound quality on disc 2 is also very good, not as good as disc 1, but all the same very good. (Best Songs: Lonely Man, Wooden Heart & Can't Help Falling In Love).
Disc 3 consists of unreleased songs recordedin Nashville studio B. This is also a very good disc with a great selection of songs. The sound quality is very good, better the disc 2 but not as good as disc 1. (Best Tracks: The Girl Of My Best Friend, Night Rider, His Latest Flame & US Male).
Now on to my favourite disc, disc 4! Recoreded live in Texas 1972, what can I say about this disc apart from WOW! The song selection is amazing, the sould quality is by far the best of all the live albums released so far and Elvis is on TOP form! (Best Songs: You Gave Me A Mountain, Polk Salad Annie, How Great Thou Art, I Can't Stop Loving You, Suspicious Minds, Burning Love & An American Trilogy).
So over all I think this box set is well worth your well earned cash, for disc 1 & 4 alone. Maybe more for the collecting Elvis fans but just as enjoyable for ALL Elvis fans of all types and ages.
LONG LIVE THE KING!
