Lucky to get three.

This review is from: Setlist: The Very Best Of Elvis Presley Live (Audio CD)
Before declaring why I'm not being more enthusiastic about this cd let me say that Elvis had the most beautiful voice I have ever heard but over the years, in general, he has not been served well by his record company. I wish I was able to give this more than three and some Elvis fans will no doubt disagree with my reason for not doing so...the main being this. The "Aloha" version of "American Trilogy" is far from being the best and there are several that are better on other cds. Unfortunately, THE BEST version is continuously ignored on compilation cds and is, once again, on this...the so-called "best". Far and away the greatest version was that released as the single in 1972...the one with "the scream"...Elvis fans will know what that means. Over the years I have bought compilation cds containing "Trilogy" hoping to find this version only to be disappointed. It's as if it's been lost or destroyed which surely cant be true. But it is something that I just dont understand and if someone can guide me to a cd containing this version I would be forever grateful.
