      Disadvantages

      A fantastic box set that any real Elvis fan should definitely own.

      Platinum: a life in music is an album that spans the career of what I and many others believe to be the greatest singer of all time and the man known as the king of rock and roll, one Elvis Presley.

      This album was put together and released way back in 1977 originally but has since been re-released on CD.

      The album has four CD`s in total and covers Elvis music both well known and very rare, the previously unreleased stuff on this album was what drew me to buy it on vinyl all those years ago and is still the main reason I enjoy the album today.

      Elvis`s well known music can be found on so many compilation albums this would have just been another one of those had it not had the rare tracks on it and although true fans of Elvis buy pretty much anything with his name on it how many others would have splashed out on yet another greatest hits album?

      Going way back to Elvis`s early years in the 50`s we have tracks such as heartbreak hotel and rip it up and then the album moves on through the 60`s and 70`s till the sad death of the great man and of course in-between all this we have the tracks that us fans had previously not heard.

      It`s midnight, are you sincere and steamroller blues are Elvis tracks that appear on this album that are pretty much unknown and make for very interesting listening, are these tracks that he would have released had he not died so suddenly or were they never meant to be heard? Either way they are something else for us fans to get our teeth into.

      This album has all you would expect from an album from such a huge star, it has direction, great tracks, excellent production and of course being an Elvis album it has probably the greatest vocals ever heard.

      I would recommend this album or box set as it is really, to anyone but I would urge fans of the great man to get themselves a copy of this for sure if they do not already own it.

        A Life In Music

        PLATINUM: A LIFE IN MUSIC is a career-spanning retrospective of The King Of Rock N Roll's music, across 4 CDs. It was originally released in 1977 and features a plethora of both well known songs and previously unreleased material. My favourite portion of the set is the jam sessions on the third disc, which shows that as well as being able to produce slickly produced songs, Elvis could of course also rock with the best of them (what am I saying?! - he was the best of them!).

        The first disc comes second in my estimation - it is a collection of alternate takes from the earliest years of his career, including songs such as HEARTBREAK HOTEL and RIP IT UP. This really is a great listen.

        This is a fantastic collection that deserves a place on any Elvis fan's shelf, and it is worth a listen even if you don't know much Elvis material as the career-spanning nature of it means that you are able to dip into all aspects of his career. from the 50s to the 70s.
