Of course with these songs available elsewhere, on the original albums and the billion willion other complinations, the real value in this pack hinges with the bonus DVD. And the DVD is actually very good with early footage of Elvis when he was just starting out - forget the man of his Vegas years and check this out - WOW! It includes the appearance of THe Frank Sinartra recorded when Elvis was fresh out of the army and already here is it clear that they've started taming wild man Elvis. Three's also early performances of Money Honey. Come back Baby, Too Much. Heartbreak Hotel (a legendary performance this one), Love me Tender, when my blue moon turns to gold, Hound Dog. The video gets five stars. Of course if you are new to the the King then the CD's are excellent too - particularly disc 1 which features a splattering of the Sun tracks as well as the best of Elvis' RCA period. The second CD is made up of mid period Post Army Elvis and while it is good, made up some of Elvis' best 60's stuff it is not as hot as the first red hot blistering disc.
