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

5.0 out of 5 stars 1986's All Time Greatest Hits 10 Sep 2003
By Sean
Format:Audio CD
It can be a daunting experience picking up a Elvis best of compilation. Due to RCA exploiting his back catalogue the 1st time buyer is faced with a plethora of Hits sets, Themed-albums (Rocker, Gospel, movie soundtracks) and various other Tat ranging from single CDs with LOADS missing, right away up to The Artist of The Century 3 CD box set. It's a hard decision if you want value for money: a set that covers the absolute essentials while sounding decent enough.

Firstly it's simply impossible to cover Presley's career on one single CD, he had so many hits, 3 very different decades: each with its own fan base, and covered so many styles (RaR, Crooner ballads, soul, country, gospel), so get that idea out of the way. With 2 CD's however you can 'Just' about do it, I do emphasise 'Just' because there is always going to be tracks missing and a few personal favorites which perhaps are not considered well known enough.

This is probably the 2nd best Greatest Hits album released on Presley, the best being 2000's 'The 50 Greatest Hits' (Forgot 30 No #1's). It makes a very good Introduction as well as satisfying those who want the bare essentials without a larger investment.

Omissions? The most glaring one is Don't Be Cruel, a song that would rank amongst his most well known and well loved of his classic 50s period. Also this collection makes the same mistake many others do and omits the Sun Sessions: Elvis very finest material; meaning no That's All Right, no Mystery Train. These are mistakes '50 Greatest Hits' doesn't repeat making that the slightly better complation.

Despite those approx. 4 glaring omissions this is near perfect. The first 2/3's of disc one represent the finest body of recorded Music ever (alongside the Beatles perhaps).

I would like to pick up on a point made by a previous reviewer about this album. Firstly I disagree strongly Elvis' period at Sun Records was his best, heck he only made 6 singles with the label. The majority of the tracks on this set are much finer.
Furthermore, the reason their are no Sun singles here is because an album of this kind is meant to capture hit's, not early obscurities, not rarity's, not the b-side you liked to a number 1 single, not those album cuts that never got out as singles.
Now some acts Greatest Hit's do do that (reason: They didn't have enough hit's). There are plenty of Presley compilations of Sun Material. So, if you want the sun stuff, you can get one of those. If you want the hit's, they you buy an album like this. If you want the "That's the way it is" album, you buy that, if you want all three, well you get all three.

This top 10 UK greatest hits compilation dates back 1987 at the time of the tenth anniversary of Elvis's passing.

Along with the 1980 K-tel, released Gospel compilation "Inspirations", it was the most successful Elvis album of the period.

Some critics quote the 1992 release of the "Complete 50's Masters" box set as being the point when RCA (Sony BMG) started showing respect for Elvis legacy in the quality of the releases they put out. However, in my opinion it is this release where that turnaround happened, possibly spurred on by the events that marked the anniversary.

It was also the first career spanning greatest album released and successor to the 40 Greatest Hits album from the mid-70's that topped the UK album charts in 1977. Those who are familiar with the "40 Greatest Hits" album will know that it began with "My Baby Left Me" from 1956 an ended with 1971's "There Goes My Everything". So "All Time Greatest Hits" took us beyond that including such significant 1970's recordings as "Burning Love", "Always On My Mind", "Moody Blue" and "Way Down" for the first time on such an album. It also ended with the UK No.3 single from 1980, "It's Only Love".

The album was much more faithful to the actual hit singles than the aforementioned "40 Greatest Hits". The previous album mixed the odd popular track such as "Old Shep", "Fever" and "There's Always Me". All the tracks on "All Time Greatest Hits" were singles in most cases from both the UK and USA and complete with the initial release chart history. So, in this album unlike it's earlier counterpart we had not only the later 70's hits but such hits as "Too Much", "Love Letters" and "If I Can Dream" also presented.
