For anyone who hasn't an extensive Elvis collection and wants to get as near as possible to hearing how he started, this is as good as it gets. It isn't complete, nor is any other release complete to my knowledge but it has more than any other collection you could buy within its covers. It has some inaccuracies in the take numbers of some of the tracks but so does some of the official Sony/BMG/RCA releases, therefore it would be unfair to point a finger at this release alone. It goes right to the very start with "My happiness" which Elvis recorded in 1953 as a private recording all the way up to his finish with Sun Records in 1955. The contents are excellent, including both studio and live recordings. The presentation is really top class with beautiful picture discs and a 16 page booklet. Highly recommended and well worth the money.
