      Worth £6.50 if you are new to Elvis

      This is one of the compilations of Elvis Presley songs that seems to have been slapped together with very little thought. The track listing is random both in its selection and its order. There are a total of 75 songs across 3 discs and considering that it is currently available from Amazon for only £6.50 then it is a good purchase for someone who is new to Elvis but a waste of time for a collector.

      Anyway, what songs are included? Well there are some excellent rockers, such as HARD HEADED WOMAN and HOUND DOG, some beautiful ballads such as LOVE ME TENDER and CAN'T HELP FALLING IN LOVE, and of course, as is always the case with this kind of collection, some pretty dire songs from the movies, such as ITO EATS and SLICIN' SAND. These latter songs would unfortunately put off new listeners and it always confuses me why these kind of tracks are including on compilation sets like this as they would not be likely to lead to the purchaser buying more Elvis music, despite the excellent quality of the other songs already mentioned.

      So, all in all this is a good purchase for someone new to this artist, but a waste of time for almost everyone else.
