This collection of wonderful performances by the King of Rock'n'Roll showcases 30 of his #1 US and UK hits. Culled from his TV guest appearance, movies, concert films and television specials - from 1956, the year his star ascended, to the 1970s when he reached the pinnacle of his career - this is Elvis at his Best. "Elvis: #1 Hit Performances" - video version of compilation "Elvis: 30 #1 Hits", released in 2002 on CD.
Here is a collection of 159 titles, 227 CDs in the Elvis Presley - Follow That Dream Series (1999-2016). All of these have covers and many have very nice artwork. Several have full booklet scans as well.
This five-disc set was the first release in BMG's effort to present Elvis's recorded legacy in a manner befitting the most important musical artist of his time. The strategy was simple–showcase, in chronological order, remastered versions of the King's 1950s output, from his sessions with Sam Phillips at Sun Studios (where they arguably invented the very notion of rock & roll) through his 1958 Army induction. Not everything Elvis recorded in the '50s was great (just as not everything he recorded in Hollywood was rotten), but there are dozens of tracks here that, quite simply, can make a bad day seem all that much better. Which surely still makes him the king of something. Suffice it to say this is one box set that lives up to its title.
