5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic value, brilliant music 20 Jun 2011
By Glasgow Dreamer TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.

Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value and recording quality 10 July 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars love it 7 Jan 2013
By Ann
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some alternate versions
I don't have this set but a quick listen to the audio grabs indicates that a number of "alternate take" versions have been used.
