5.0 out of 5 stars Truly, a life in music..., 19 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Life In Music: PLATINUM (Audio CD)
Wonderful box set. It's all here, the big hits and tons of outtakes and rare tracks. The sound on some of the alternate takes and live performances is a bit 'scratchy' because it was purposely not remastered, but I actually like it...it gives it a nice touch of the past. This is probably more of a collector's edition but I'm no collector and I absolutely love it. When I want to listen to The King, I listen to this set. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to go a little deeper into this man's music, which had a lot more to offer than just the big hits we all know. 5 stars.

Update 28/07/2012:

I've had this set for over a month now and can say this: This IS a collector's item. The music here is brilliant. There was real care taken in the choice of tracks, mastering and presentation. As some one relatively new to Elvis Presley (I was 5 years old when he died...) I cannot describe what being 'new' to his music is like. Elvis, Little Richard and Chuck Berry basically invented rock and roll and, with that, modern music. I used to see this man as a joke; The fat guy in jump suits doing Vegas shows but, NO, nothing could be further from the truth. The music he made was REVOLUTIONARY; Music that changed music forever. In a short time, I have become an avid Elvis fan and this set has a special place on my shelf and in my CD changer. I would recommend you buy this limited edition before it starts to sell upwards of £100 (and I bet it will soon.)
