EDITORS’ NOTES

Starting with 1956’s seminal one-two punch of Elvis Presley and Elvis—cue the firecracker incitement of “Blue Suede Shoes”—this career-defining nine-album set tracks The King’s shrewd evolution from scene-crashing country boy to soft-featured mainstream pinup. Twanging romps like “Ready Teddy” and “So Glad You’re Mine” highlight his assured blending of raw blues, country, and pop ingredients into a tumultuous yet tender hybrid. Even when soundtracking his own movies and crooning Christmas chestnuts, the man oozes larger-than-life charisma to this day.

The Complete

What a wonderful collection - but - yet another rehash to sqeeze even more of our hard earned cash into the pockets of the record companies, who can't even get their facts right - since when did JD Sumner and The Stamps record with Elvis in 1958 on Gold Records 2 and "I Need Your Love Tonight"? It makes you wonder why Elvis's wonderful legacy has been left in the hands of these people (I was going to say cretins but that may be a bit strong). Yes, I know that there is no new material but a few re-mastered track does not a new collection make.

Elvis 50s Albums Collection

Agree as the above comments are accurate but then Elvis was American and the original albums came out in the U.S. and were often slighty different in other countries - think of South Africa for instance. But what a collection!
