5.0 out of 5 stars The King Remastered For The Digital Age
Never before has an Elvis album been remastered with such care. BMG has found the original masters and session tapes of 30 songs which made the top of the pop charts in the US and the UK between 1956 and 1977, remixed and remastered them, and added the JXL remix which recently topped the charts in fourteen countries. Similar to the ground-breaking Beatles Number Ones...

Never before has an Elvis album been remastered with such care. BMG has found the original masters and session tapes of 30 songs which made the top of the pop charts in the US and the UK between 1956 and 1977, remixed and remastered them, and added the JXL remix which recently topped the charts in fourteen countries. Similar to the ground-breaking Beatles Number Ones album in that Elvis' greatest songs aren't included if they didn't get to No.1, this therefore excludes songs like 'That's All Right', 'If I Can Dream' and 'Always On My Mind'. But it does include great songs like 'Heartbreak Hotel', 'Don't Be Cruel' and 'Suspicious Minds', all remastered to perfection. Some songs have sounded rather flat in the past, paarticularly 'Hound Dog', where they didn't have the master tape at hand, but now they've found it in a vault and used it for the first time since 1956.Two songs are noticably different, in that they've used a different version for this release. 'A Fool Such As I' is a different, earlier take of the song, and 'The Wonder Of You' is an undubbed version from an evening Vegas show, here replacing the overdubbed version recorded at the afternoon show the same day. Both lack the finesse of the master versions, but add to the collectability of the CD.These are the greatest hits of the worlds greatest entertainer ever. Therefore this has got to be the greatest album ever released by anyone, and should be in everyone's collection, along with 'The Sun Collection', 'Elvis Is Back' and 'From Elvis In Memphis'. Buy it now.

5.0 out of 5 stars ELV1S will always be the K1NG, 24 Sep 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Elv1s: 30 #1 Hits (Audio CD)
The 31 songs on this album do not neccessarily give a complete picture of the enormous talent of the greatest recording artist of all time, but they are better than anything anyone else has to offer. All these songs are classics, many have already sold tens of millions of copies as singles and on albums.
With this cd there is the added bonus of the songs being remastered from the origonal tapes so that the sound quality is excellent. You can really hear ELV1S' voice crisp and clear, much better than on any earlier cd. It is almost like hearing the K1NG for the first time.
If you are an ELV1S fan then you have probably already decided to buy this album. If you are not yet a fan, listen to this cd. You will quickly realise why the Legend lives on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Long live the King!, 14 Dec 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Elv1s: 30 #1 Hits (Audio CD)
When JXL remixed the '68 hit 'A Little Less Conversation' and got it to number one, it brought Elvis to a whole new generation of fans, including me. My parents are both Elvis fans and I've grown up with his music, but I bought this cd for myself, and to all young fans - it shows why Elvis is the King!
Most of the hits are from the 50's and early 60's, and the infamous tracks 'Heartbeak Hotel', 'Hound dog' and 'All Shook Up' are featured, as well as some lesser-known ones like 'too much' and 'hard headed woman'. What is great about this cd is that it shows Elvis' versatality - no other artist (not even Jacko, who many kids today think is better than Elvis, as if!) could change from rock (Jailhouse rock, burning love) to beautiful ballads (love me tender, don't, can't help falling in love) to gospel (crying in the chapel).
This cd also features 'suspicious minds' which puts Gareth Gates' recent cover to shame. And for newer or younger fans, the sleeve includes information on each track. Once you have this cd, you will want more. And remember:
Before anyone did anything, Elvis did Everything!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mind Blowing!!, 24 Sep 2002

I think my title says it all, really, if you ever buy a single elvis cd make it this one as it is perfect in every way. The 50's tracks the sound is crystal clear and yet still keep there classic sound, such as All Shook Up and Hound Dog. The 60's tracks is where you start to hear sounds you've never heard before on previous elvis best of's on songs such as His Latest Flame, In The Ghetto and Suspicious Minds, well basically all of them. The 70's tracks, well thats a different thing all together, Burning Love has never, ever sounded so good!! Every single track has improved, really thay are so much better!! Even if you have another Elvis compilation it will not come close to the qulity of this album, and at over 79 minutes long, fantastic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Always No.1, 7 Nov 2013
This review is from: Elv1s: 30 #1 Hits (Audio CD)
This was a huge album in 2002, with a record breaking 18th No.1 UK single to boot.

All Elvis's finest UK and US chart toppers are included. It may not be the most complete greatest hits album released, but captures the core foundation of the magic.
