Product Description

ELVIS PRESLEY 30 #1 Hits (2002 Taiwanese issue 31-track CD album a stunning collection of The Kings #1 hit singles including bonus track A Little Less Conversation - JXL Remix in unique picture slipcase plus extensive photo lyric booklet)

Amazon.co.uk

Heralded in the UK by an ultra-cool remix by JXL, Elvis: 30 #1 Hits is one of the most succinct packages of Presley's best work ever released. Based on the idea of the Beatles 1 album, this compilation includes all 31 Elvis singles that have been number one in either the US or the UK.

Set in roughly chronological order, the collection begins with his first hit, the swaggering "Heartbreak Hotel". Despite digital remastering it still sounds nearly half a century old when compared to his most recent (and posthumous) hit "A Little Less Conversation", but it remains a timeless classic for new generations to discover. Most people--young or old--will know of or be able to hum a few bars from most of the songs here. Many a karaoke singer will have had a stab at "Love Me Tender" or "Suspicious Minds"; others will have heard a family member brutally crooning their way through "Are You Lonesome Tonight?" or "It's Now or Never".

Twenty-five years after Elvis's untimely death, younger generations have become accustomed to the image of Presley as a tragic icon of comedy excess, remembering him for garish jump-suits, trademark shades and a thick black quiff. Elvis: 30 #1 Hits will remind many that he was the King for a very good reason. --David Trueman

Never before has an Elvis album been remastered with such care. BMG has found the original masters and session tapes of 30 songs which made the top of the pop charts in the US and the UK between 1956 and 1977, remixed and remastered them, and added the JXL remix which recently topped the charts in fourteen countries. Similar to the ground-breaking Beatles Number Ones album in that Elvis' greatest songs aren't included if they didn't get to No.1, this therefore excludes songs like 'That's All Right', 'If I Can Dream' and 'Always On My Mind'. But it does include great songs like 'Heartbreak Hotel', 'Don't Be Cruel' and 'Suspicious Minds', all remastered to perfection. Some songs have sounded rather flat in the past, paarticularly 'Hound Dog', where they didn't have the master tape at hand, but now they've found it in a vault and used it for the first time since 1956.Two songs are noticably different, in that they've used a different version for this release. 'A Fool Such As I' is a different, earlier take of the song, and 'The Wonder Of You' is an undubbed version from an evening Vegas show, here replacing the overdubbed version recorded at the afternoon show the same day. Both lack the finesse of the master versions, but add to the collectability of the CD.These are the greatest hits of the worlds greatest entertainer ever. Therefore this has got to be the greatest album ever released by anyone, and should be in everyone's collection, along with 'The Sun Collection', 'Elvis Is Back' and 'From Elvis In Memphis'. Buy it now.

When JXL remixed the '68 hit 'A Little Less Conversation' and got it to number one, it brought Elvis to a whole new generation of fans, including me. My parents are both Elvis fans and I've grown up with his music, but I bought this cd for myself, and to all young fans - it shows why Elvis is the King!
Most of the hits are from the 50's and early 60's, and the infamous tracks 'Heartbeak Hotel', 'Hound dog' and 'All Shook Up' are featured, as well as some lesser-known ones like 'too much' and 'hard headed woman'. What is great about this cd is that it shows Elvis' versatality - no other artist (not even Jacko, who many kids today think is better than Elvis, as if!) could change from rock (Jailhouse rock, burning love) to beautiful ballads (love me tender, don't, can't help falling in love) to gospel (crying in the chapel).
This cd also features 'suspicious minds' which puts Gareth Gates' recent cover to shame. And for newer or younger fans, the sleeve includes information on each track. Once you have this cd, you will want more. And remember:
Before anyone did anything, Elvis did Everything!

The 31 songs on this album do not neccessarily give a complete picture of the enormous talent of the greatest recording artist of all time, but they are better than anything anyone else has to offer. All these songs are classics, many have already sold tens of millions of copies as singles and on albums.
With this cd there is the added bonus of the songs being remastered from the origonal tapes so that the sound quality is excellent. You can really hear ELV1S' voice crisp and clear, much better than on any earlier cd. It is almost like hearing the K1NG for the first time.
If you are an ELV1S fan then you have probably already decided to buy this album. If you are not yet a fan, listen to this cd. You will quickly realise why the Legend lives on.

This disc has a good many Elvis hits. The interesting thing about it really is that you get to hear the tracks much more as the recording engineer would before any "sanitising" takes place. The disc is in " hi - res" quality( only playable on compatible disc players) which tends to show all the imperfections of the original "take". This is neither a "good" nor "bad" feature - it all depends what you prefer - personally I'm pleased I bought it.

This compilation contain 30 tracks that had been number one hits in the pop charts in Britain, America or both, together with the JXL remix of the hitherto obscure A little less conversation, which made the total 31. As others have noted, the remix created a whole new generation of Elvis fans although I had been a fan for many years previously.
The set is presented in approximate chronological order, beginning with his rock'n'roll hits of the fifties including the hard-rocking classics Heartbreak hotel, Hound dog, All shook up and Jailhouse rock along with great ballads like Love me tender.
After a spell in the army, Elvis returned to the music business but he recorded more ballads and his new up-tempo songs didn't rock quite as hard. Some people lost interest in his music at this point but I enjoy music from all periods in his career. His sixties music was different from his earlier rock'n'roll but was, if anything, even more successful, at least to begin with. The classic songs from the early sixties include It's now or never, Are you lonesome tonight, Marie's the name of his latest flame, Can't help falling in love and Devil in disguise.
As the sixties progressed, Elvis became an actor. Although some of his soundtrack music was brilliant, Elvis lost his way as far as hit singles were concerned. In the mid-sixties, he topped the UK charts with \crying in the chapel but the sixties were nearly over before Elvis again returned to the high places in the singles charts on a regular basis, although very few reached number one in Britain or America. Suspicious minds and The wonder of you are perhaps the most famous of them. Way down, the last of his original number one hits, was in the charts but not doing much when Elvis died. Within a few days, it shot to number one in Britain.
