As much of Elvis Presley's catalogue is now over 50 years old, it has fallen out of copyright. This has resulted in a slew of cheap, nasty compilations from unknown record labels simply trying to cash in. Thankfully this 3CD Set does not fall into that category, being compiled and issued by the "rightful owner" of the sounds, RCA Victor themselves (now part of the Sony Group). As they originally held the copyright, the record company have actually been quite clever with this compilation by including a few tracks which are not yet out of copyright - therefore stealing a march on the cheapskate opportunists, who won't be able to release these tracks for a year or so yet. No doubt a newer compilation will be released later to keep them one step ahead. Good thinking!

So what we have here is an excellent, if rather unfocused, compilation of 90 tracks from the first years of Elvis's success. I say unfocused, as there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason in the order the tracks appear, other than that the majority of the hits are on the first two discs, with the third being, in the main, a collection of his finest religious recordings from the period. To my untrained ear, the vast majority of the tracks appear to be the original recordings; unfortunately the packaging does not confirm this, merely informing us, rather bafflingly, that in most cases that the track was recorded before 1972.

This is an ideal way to start an Elvis collection, or to replace some of your old vinyl with an excellent value compilation. All the early hits are here; "Heartbreak Hotel", "All Shook Up", Jailhouse Rock", "Love Me, Tender", "Hound Dog", "Are You Lonesome Tonight" - I could go on.

This is an astounding compilation of 90 songs by Elvis. It covers a wide range, in several styles, from well-known hits to lesser-known love songs, many of which are beautifully-rendered and ought to be played more often, since they show the superb vocal talent that Elvis offered to the world. Of course the tracks aren't in any specific order - that's a job covered better by individually-named LPs and/or box-sets of the Master-recordings. Best to treat this set as a sampler, to play anywhere, anytime.

As a reader commented to me recently the 'Real-Elvis The 60's Collection' and this match-up together quite brilliantly.
This one covering much of the 'King's' releases from his early beginnings recording for 'Sun-Records' continuing
through his early R,C.A career through to 1960/1, the other release taking us through to 1969.
As this release clearly demonstrates 'Elvis' was at home singing 'Gospel' as was he with 'Rock' 'Ballads' and indeed 'Love'
songs...........on disc one we find material such as ........'Jailhouse Rock' a number '1' way back in 1958........'Hound Dog'
which charted at number '2' back in 1956........'Don't Be Cruel' which started out in the U.S as the B-side to 'Hound Dog'
'King Creole' which like 'Jailhouse Rock' was from a film of the same name and charted at number two the same year.....
'Little Sister' which was one half of the double 'A' release with (Marie's The Name) His Latest Flame' which topped the U.K
chart during 1961........and........'My Baby Left Me' which started out as a B-Side to 'I Want You, I Need You, I Love You' way
back in 1955..........just some of the much loved songs from the 'King' that can be found on-board the first disc......on disc two
numbers such as........'Love Me Tender' again from the film of the same name, a number '1' hit in 1956........'Heartbreak Hotel'
one of 'Elvis's' first U.K Hits in 1956 charting at number '2'........'Wooden Heart' another firm favourite from 'Elvis' another of his chart-toppers during 1961........'A Mess of Blues' which charted at number '2' during 1961 it's B-Side 'Girl Of My Best Friend. also
claimed a Top-Five slot at the same time........'Stuck On You' a number '3' sound also from 1960........and .....

Disc 1 is mainly the very early stuff, very good.
Disc 2 a good mixture, although inevitably some important tracks - in my opinion - are missing.
Disc 3 contains too much of Elvis's religious work, there are plenty of albums specifically covering these.

I love anything this beautiful man has done. I like most Elvis fans have so many repeats of stuff it is so exciting when you can get something that you haven't already got him singing, this would be a good one to start a collection with though.

A reall mix of Evis music from the early days.54,to 61,its a weird mixing of hits and early movie tunes with gospel tracks thrown in,this album only takes you up to Elvis career to 1961,but you do get pretty much everything youd expect from Elvis and being a 3 cd album is good value,but not much thought has gone into the track selections and where theyve been placed,bit of a hotchpotch album actually,but worthy enough to be in anyones collection.
