      Great if you have not already bought the first two!

      Elvis fans have for years been targeted by companies seeking to make a fast buck from our love of the king and the record company BMG are the latest in a long line to try these tactics.

      A few years ago they released an album called 30 #1 HITS which they claimed at the time was the complete ultimate collection of Elvis`s best tracks.

      Due to its success they soon followed it up with an album entitled 2nd to None, so if it was second to none then I guess they lied about how good the first one was! They have since followed these two up with a major rip off album called history.

      History is actually a brilliant album featuring some great Elvis tracks and really showcasing the great mans talents but the trouble is if you have already purchased the first two releases then you are wasting money on this which is the best offering of all because it is just a box set of three albums with the first two included.

      Genuine marketing would have been to offer this box set right from the start but this rip off marketing is all too common where Elvis is concerned, if he were alive today he would be disgusted at the treatment of his fans.

      If you have not purchased the first two offerings from BMG then this is a great album to get your hands on but as I have said beware if you have the first two there is little point in buying this.

        Disadvantages

        Great music, shame about the rip-off marketing

        HITSTORY is an interesting Elvis Presley release. A few years back Elvis' record company BMG released a compilation album called 30 #1 HITS which is a fantastic collection of songs and did very well as far as sales go. They followed this up the following year with another collection, called 2ND TO NONE, which again did very well.

        Originally I expected that HITSTORY was going to be a similar kettle of fish, but instead BMG came up with the idea of packaging the previous two albums together, with an additional 3rd disc of recordings, and call it HITSTORY. This means that if you don't own 30 #1 HITS and 2ND TO NONE then HITSTORY is a fantastic collection. However if you do already own those albums then it is a bit of a ripoff as you have to buy them again in order to get the 3rd disc.

        For the music I'd give the album 5 stars, but because of the rip-off nature of the marketing I have to go with only 3 unfortunately
