      Two discs of quality music!

      There have been countless numbers of Elvis compilation albums released over the years and some of them have almost the exact same tracks on them and this is done because record companies know that Elvis fans will buy them even though they have the songs on them on a million other albums.

      Elvis fans are a bit unique in that they feel cheated at the death of their idol and therefore they long for new releases that will of course never come other than in the shape of compilation albums.

      This album entitled "THE KING" is basically just another compilation album but being that it was released in 2007 it has been digitally remastered and there is a new found clarity to the tracks.

      The other thing that this album has that the earlier compilations do not is that fabulous remix of "a little less conversation" done by JXL.

      It was thought by most that Elvis fans would hate the upbeat version of this track done by JXL but in truth most of us love it and it is another example of the versatility of the music of the king.

      Being a compilation album the makers have of course selected the best of the best of Elvis`s tracks so there are no weak links on the album and even though most fans will have every track on it already in their collections I still rate this as a must buy album.

      If you do not have an endless selection of Elvis albums then this one is a great album to start with to get a great selection of the great mans music on two discs, there are 52 tracks in total and it really is a great listen and an album I would rally go out of my way to recommend!

        The King

        There have been a great many Elvis compilation albums released over the years. They can't really be aimed at Elvis fans as they surely own all of the material already - instead they seem to be aimed at trying to lure new fans into the fold, and there's nothing wrong with that!

        THE KING is just such an album. Released in 2007 it is a 2 disc set featuring over 50 classic tracks sung by my favourite performer, The King Of Rock And Roll himself, Elvis Presley.

        The songs range from all periods of Elvis' career, including such early tracks as LOVE ME TENDER and TOO MUCH, right up to songs from late in his career such as WAY DOWN. Also included is the relatively recent remix of A LITTLE LESS CONVERSATION.

        Although not an essential purchase for people like me by any means (I have all of the songs already, as already hinted at above), this would be a great gift for people who you wanted to turn into an Elvis fan over the Christmas break!
