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

...and then I got this. Listened to some of the early Sun stuff, and thought "hang on a mo, this is NOT Cheeseburger guzzling stuff", so I bought a cheap box set of Elvis's early CD's, and while I was not exactly hooked, it made a nice change from the feral guitars stuff and psychedelia which floats my boat.

I liked the box. So I bought it (cos I am OCD almost). The fact that each single is recreated immaculately on 10" vinyl was a great attraction. Oh....I got THIS one first, with just Heartbreak Hotel. Each single ? Whoops ! I bought the box set in completion later.

That's cheaper than buying THIS box and filling it with the other 17 singles item for item, but as a taster it's fine... and worth the money.

Nice package 18 Feb. 2006
By Henri Bronsgeest - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This was released because of the 50th aniversary of the release of this single. It has an outtake as an extra. The cover of the EP was used since singles didn't have picture covers for Elvis until Hound Dog/Don't Be Cruel.

This is for collector's since most people would buy these songs on a Greatest Hits compilation.

The start of a music revolution! 1 Sept. 2007
By A Fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
What can you say about a classic that started a revolution in popular music? This single went to number 1 on the US singles chart and stayed their for 7 weeks. The flip side also charted, peaking at 23 on the Billboard Top 100. The single would eventually be certified MULTI-PLATINUM by the RIAA. This CD single includes both the original 45 single A and B sides plus an alternate take of Heartbreak Hotel as a bonus. This is a piece of history and a must for any student of rock.

Incidentally, this single was re-released in 2006 and hit number 1 again on the Billboard Singles Sales chart 50 years after it did it the first time! Talk about staying power!

A classic! 1 May 2006

Incidentally, this single just recently hit number 1 again on the Billboard Singles Sales chart 50 years after it did it the first time! Talk about staying power!

Heartbreak Hotel CD single 25 Feb. 2006
By Jay Boco - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Always loved the song and the "flip" I Was the One more. The only trouble I have is that it will not play in my jukebox style CD players, though it will play in the flat loader. While this is a problem infrequently with self made discs it is rare with stock items. Thus the subtraction of a star.

I first turned on top 40 radio to Hound Dog/Don't Be Cruel so Heartbreak Hotel was an "oldie" for me. Even so, it is so strongly related to the Sun material that it soars into the upper echelon of Presley material. The longer he recorded the further he got away from that. Thank you "Colonel" Tom.
