This is a great value CD set. Bought even though I already had all these tracks in other forms. The very fact of having a 'continuous flow' of early Elvis, copied onto a music server in my case, and virtually chronological, re-awakens appreciation of the music of this man.

The quality of the CD transfer is very high, so clear in fact that I deciphered a few words in some lyrics that previously I'd not known! This WOULD have got full 5 stars had the powerful ORIGINAL SINGLE version of 'Doncha Think It's Time' been included INSTEAD of the weakly alternative version that always seems to find its way onto Presley CDs these days! SO irritating, that one. Still, I do still have the superior version on the original single!

well he may well have left us for that big recording studio in the sky
but he did leave us a lot of excellent music.
this box set of eight classic LPs put onto four CDs is proof that he was the best
If you want to "get into" elvis this is what you need to listen to, altho` there is nothing wrong with his later music, for me, this is where he was best before he got cluttered up with the money aspects and all that brings with it
buy it, listen to him, you will not get a better deal than this and you will listen to him over and over again

This must be one of the best cd's ever. Not a bad track. Elvis shows here why nobody else have reached the high standard he made in the 50's.

Let me first say it's elvis,s first eight studio albums for £ 6.99 that's less than a pound an album plus all the singles and b sides released during that time , I already have these albums but I bought this for the car and it's never out of my player ,
To sum it up it's a no brainier get it bought !!!

This collection impresses me because the sound is NOT muffled mono, hissing stereo or 'fake' echo stereo - it's 'Elvis crystal clear' on almost every song, outstanding on some. This definitely hasn't been 'lifted' off old LP's. The 'Elvis is Back' and 'King Creole' tracks sound better than on their original cds! The sound is very clean, not dull but exciting. I already had all the songs but i'm glad I've got this great collection which will get a lot of airplay.

I'm looking forward to receiving vol.2 which is 'Four Classic Albums Plus' [Box Set, Original Recording Remastered] which basically contains most of the few 1955-63 tracks that are missing here.
Having both these sets means the only tracks from the '50's and to the end of 1962 i can think are missing - (apart from unreleased or alternate takes) would be 'When it rains, it really pours','Danny' and 'Ain't that loving you baby'...which were placed on albums after 1963....so maybe next year...

Well done 'Real Gone Music' you have a new old Elvis fan.

Received my order as promised and was glad to receive it. Every Elvis fan seasoned or just discovering Elvis you need this set it's great and you cannot beat the price for 8 classic albums my advice buy it and of course customer service at Amazon is great.

I have been an Elvis fan since 1958 which proves how old I am (just over 67 years). This sits well with my other LP's, EP;s, Singles and CD's. There are a couple of tracks that I've never heard before and this makes this set even more exiting. Brilliant, brilliant. What more can I say.
