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 box provides an accessible and affordable detailed introduction to the mans music. If you just want the hits theres 100's of options out there (the best is without a doubt the 3 disc "Hitstory")to chose from. If your not a committed fan though but are curious to get a more indepth insight that goes beyond the greatest hits but unsure which albums to go for, this is possible the best Elvis "starter kit" you could have.

From his 1st album release for RCA in '56, "Elvis Presley" it is the nearest you get to his early Sun cuts without buying them,which you should do. With the pink and green lettering (which was paid tribute to by the Clashs own "London Calling") through to the tailend of his life and career with the great "Moody Blue".
"Moody Blue" is an album worth so much more than AMG's paltry 2 star rating (goes to show even respected sources get it wrong sometimes). Considering his physical state at the time some of these performances beggar belief that he could still turn them out. The last LP release before his death deserves inclusion.

The 2 albums already mentioned which are number 1 and 7 in the box in terms of chronology would be on any "essential" list. So would the 2nd the "Christmas Album" recorded in '57. This was the marker he threw down to the world to say he was more than a white blues shouter. It hints at the range of performance styles he would soon prove himself capable of."Here comes Santa Claus" is pure pop, "Blue Christmas" pure blues, "I Believe" is country and "I'll be home for christmas" demonstrates the vocal range in a spine tingling dozen words or so. Forget the seasonal aspect this is an awsome album.

Just to show nobodys perfect (thats both Elvis and the compilers) we have "Blue Hawaii"- movie soundtrack.

For someone like me , though 51 years young , and with no single Elvis in his collection, this is a perfect match since it spans the mans carrier and serves several kinds of music on the table. Nice packaging and low price. Good buy.
