      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Better buy the single lbums than this box set.

      Original album classics is one Elvis album I would personally never purchase, a friend of mine bought this box set but it is such a rip off and clearly aimed at Elvis collectors who big companies assume will buy anything with the kings name on it.

      This album is a collection of 5 previously released albums which are, "Elvis, Elvis Presley, Loving you, Elvis is back and G.I. Blues".

      The collection of tracks is very good but my problem with the album is that if you purchase the 5 original albums you get all the tracks on this box set and more.

      It may work out slightly more expensive to buy the 5 albums separately but it is definitely worth it to get the tracks that are missing from them in this collection.

      There are some classic and very good Elvis tracks on here such as "Blue suede shoes, teddy bear, old shep and wooden heart" and if all you want is a neat and tidy collection of many great Elvis tracks then by all means give this a look but true fans and collectors will much prefer the separate albums.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Great music

      ORIGINAL ALBUM CLASSICS is a product which gathers together 5 original Elvis albums into one collection. This means that you get 5 discs of music that has previously been released under the following titles:

      ELVIS
      ELVIS PRESLEY
      LOVING YOU
      ELVIS IS BACK
      GI BLUES

      The music featured on this collection is great (see below for the complete track listing), with such great songs as BLUE SUEDE SHOES, TEDDY BEAR, and STUCK ON YOU. The problem is that each of these albums have been re-released as individual albums with extra tracks on them. This means that this set is great if you are not an Elvis collector as you get a nice range of Elvis music from the 1950s to the early 1960s. If you are an Elvis collector though this is definitely one to avoid - look out for the individual releases with extra tracks on them instead.
