Undeniably good - but not the best Elvis compilation on the market,
This review is from: Elvis 75 (Audio CD)
This collection covers the whole of Presley's recording career and includes all of the obvious hits from Heartbreak Hotel through It's Now Or Never and Suspicious Minds to those home recordings made during elvis' final weeks. It is undeniably a great collection of songs, and betters that of any other artist past or present. But it's not the best Elvis collection on the market. For that look no further than the Artist Of The Century 3CD set (at around the same price). Whilst still capturing all of Elvis' big hits, this latter collection focuses much more fully on three crucial periods in Presley's recording career: the early Sun recordings, the 1960 session that captured Elvis' first post-army recordings and the celebrated Memphis recordings from 1969. If you're only going to have one Elvis CD in your collection, 'Elvis 75' might be the one for you, but Artist Of The Century gets my vote.

I think the point being missed here is that a lot of work has gone into finding the very best sources of the songs and creating the best sound possible on this box set, so it isn't just a case of releasing songs that have been released before.

2005's HITSTORY is a far better compilation.
