Neither good NOR bad,3 STAR BOXSET!!!
on 10 July 2015
okay,well,we have a wealth of Elvis Albums here and theres always gonna be one or two left out that people thought should have been included,well,im one of them,I think Elvis second album"Rock n Roll vol 2" is far superior to Elvis first attempt,and ok,they wanna include the first and last albums obviously but If i woulve made this out,"Elvis for Everyone"wouldve got the boot over the one I mentioned as its very basic and has no character.This is mainly Elvis of the 70s,but lets face it other than the movie soundtracks there was not much in the way of original Elvis releases.Missing out"Live in Memphis",is an absolute sin as is omitting"Recorded at Madision Sqaure Gdns"which both couldve replaced the very boring"Now and From Elvis Presley Boulevard"which are both pretty dreary to listen to.so this set has its faults but it has its gems and the sounds very good as well,but i would say,just for collectors and as rating goes,because they ridded themselves of 3 rotten albums in this set,they can have a star for each one and thats what this is a three star box set,neither bad,but neither good...
