      If you don't already own an Elvis collection, and if you like his hits, this is for you....

      Elvis Presley was, and still is, one of the most famous entertainers in the world. A few years ago RCA released Elv1s, a collection of his number one hits. While it was a great collection of hit songs, what it lacked was the true spirit of Elvis and his recordings. Most people judge his music on "Hound Dog", or "Love Me Tender", but there's so much more out there to hear.

      Come to 2010, and on the 75th anniversary of Presley's birth we have what can only be described as the ultimate, affordable collection of his musical output. This box set features all the hits from Elv1s, practically every song you already know, plus several studio and live recordings that most people never get to hear. My friend bought this CD and after listening to several songs instantly asked me for more Elvis music; this album converted them.

      This is a 3-cd set and at the current price (of £7.99 as I write this) it is definitely value for money. Currently the 4-cd set is £49.99, and for the extra £40 you get several live songs and studio takes not featured on this set. However, if you are just browsing for an Elvis album to add to your collection to say you have one, I would recommend this 3-cd set over the 4-cd set, mainly because of the price difference. If you are a die-hard fan, though, then you probably already have made up your mind to buy the 4-cd set and in that case I would recommend trying to find it cheaper elsewhere, or waiting until it comes down in price.

      The track listing is as follows;

      CD1:
      1. Heartbreak Hotel
      2. Blue Suede Shoes
      3. I Want You I Need You I Love You
      4. Hound Dog
      5. Blue Moon
      6. Love Me Tender
      7. Too Much

      11. Party
      12. Got A Lot O' Livin' To Do
      13. Lawdy Miss Clawdy

      15. Jailhouse Rock
      16. Don't
      17. Wear My Ring Around Your Neck
      18. Hard Headed Woman
      19. King Creole
      20. One Night
      21. A Fool Such As I
      22. A Big Hunk O' Love
      23. Stuck On You
      24. A Mess Of Blues
      25. It's Now Or Never

      CD2:

      21. Love Letters
      22. All That I Am
      23. Guitar Man
      24. U.S. Male
      25. If I Can Dream

      3. Don't Cry Daddy
      4. The Wonder Of You

      7. There Goes My Everything
      8. Rags To Riches
      9. I Just Can't Help Believing
      10. Until It's Time For You To Go
      11. An American Trilogy
      12. Burning Love
      13. Always On My Mind
      14. Fool
      15. My Boy
      16. Promised Land
      17. The Girl Of My Best Friend
      18. Suspicion
      19. Moody Blue
      20. Way Down
      21. My Way
      22. It's Only Love
      23. A Little Less Conversation [JXL Remix]
      24. Rubberneckin' [Remix]
      25. That's All Right

      I believe that everyone should have at least one Elvis Presley collection in their CD library, and although Elv1s was a great purchase for many, this one is easily much better.

        75 Awsome tracks from the king!

        There are so many Elvis Presley greatest hits albums that most would say it is completely pointless owning them all but true fans like myself don't look at it like that and as well as having all his greatest hits albums I also have all the original albums that the tracks were on and I have reviewed many of them so if you are a fan then feel free to have a look through my past reviews.

        For now though I am reviewing an Elvis greatest hits album entitled Elvis 75, it is so called because it has 75 of his best hits handpicked and placed in an order to make a very good all round Elvis Presley listening experience.

        Each and every hit on this album was at least in the top 20 singles chart and many of them made number 1, it is an excellent selection of the king of rock and roll`s music and would be a great way for non fans to become fans but it is also a great way for true fans to remember the great man and his amazing career.

        The album is spread over three CD`s the first of which is my favourite but I do love all three, the highlights of the album for me are tracks such as All shook up, Hard headed woman and it's now or never from the first CD, Can't help falling in love, crying in the chapel and if I can dream, from the second CD and in the ghetto, my boy and it`s only love, from the third CD, but there is not a track on any of the discs that I would skip as they are all excellent hits.
