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

As a teenager growing up in the 1970s I was not the greatest Elvis fan but over the years I have grown to like him. I suddenly realised that my album collection was missing an Elvis tune so I decided to buy this album. At only £5 (at the time of writing) I couldn't go far wrong. I was delighted with what I heard. Some 50-odd songs many of which are classics. Whilst I am no connoisseur of "The King" this collection fits the bill nicely. A double CD album containing all the memorable hits that I can remember. There may be better "hits" albums around but for value for money this is the one to buy. Highly recommended.

The choice of songs is mostly faultless, from 50's rockabilly to some of his best 70's ballads and even a couple of 60's hits that were an exception to a decade that was hardly his best.

However, I'm not as positive about the mastering as others. It's a bit loud. An example would be 'Moody Blue': with headphones his voice appears to be right up in your face and isolated from the rest of the mix in quite an unnatural way. The mastering is a bit too "clean" for my liking, with very prominent percussion and (with exceptions) bass that is withdrawn compared to other masters I have.

I am not an Elvis fan and only bought this because my band is doing some Elvis numbers and there was a hole in my collection. I had forgotten what a great live artist he was. My son thought he was very uncool and then asked what the great music was!

Wonderful collection. I knew Elvis but after last August trip to US (when I stopped in Memphis and visited Graceland) I got addicted. Guy was a legend, most of his songs are masterpieces, even the covers!
