well hands up all those how remember the old 40 GREATEST HITS (Arcade Label) and of course the pink vinyl edition as well
which was an excellent 2 L.P. set, now this album has most of the tracks on here that were on the 40 greatest but there are only 28 tracks on this album but i"ll tell you what, this album is much more superior in every way , the sound is fantastic the tracks are so crisp and clear (even on the quite sections of certain tracks) and brings out ELVIS voice so perfect ,
the album has 2 L.P. 180 gram vinyl which just adds to the quality of this edition and makes this a very worthwhile purchase and reason to add to any Elvis collection...brilliant album.
go on buy it ...you know you want to.

This is an interesting compilation of early Elvis tracks: two LPs in a nice gatefold sleeve with a couple of great photos on the inside. If there is a problem it is that some of the best tracks ever recorded sit alongside some of the worst. I think I would rather have had just one record with the great on it. My advice would be to go for the more expensive 40 Golden Greats, unless you are an Elvis aficionado, in which case you don't need advice from me. Pressing and overall sound are excellent, and at the price I paid on Amazon, it's a steal.
