Our Review

While the recent 30 # 1 Hits is a succinct elucidation of Presley’s charisma and blinding chart accomplishments, conveying a career that encompassed 20+ years, 102 singles, and 71 Top 40 hits calls for a more extended compilation. Wisely, The Essential Elvis Presley devotes its first set solely to Presley’s early years. These are his most revolutionary and influential songs, but perhaps more importantly they represent the time when Elvis, playing with Scotty Moore, Bill Black, and D.J. Fontana, was most at one with his music. The second set charts the rest of Presley’s career as a global cultural icon whose fame had overtaken his musical identity. While these songs have little in common with Presley’s kinetic early work, he can still disarm you with a vocal performance or unexpected arrangement. And though we miss the young Elvis, his later years are actually the most fun to explore, encompassing his experiments with soul, country, big band, and even disco. By hitting the highlights from all 20 years, The Essential Elvis Presley makes the crucial opening argument that within this unwieldy body of work lies treasure.

Jes... judges unjustly (5 stars) Elvis definitely wasn't perfect. Who is? He did, however, touch many lives through his songs. Even if you have never owned an Elvis album you probably know half of the songs on this CD. Why? You can't deny the originality and uniqueness he placed on each song, whether it was his or not! whooaaa (5 stars) elvis is SIMPLY the best SINGER in the WHOLE entire FREAKING world. nuff said This is one of the best! (5 stars) Get it now! Awesome songs!

Viewed in cold sales figures, his impact was phenomenal. Dozens upon dozens of international smashes from the mid-'50s to the mid-'70s,...
