The Very Best of Elvis Presley 2 CD
|The Very Best of Elvis Presley 2CD Set. Deluxe edition with cardboard sleeve - 40 tracks - Total Time: 93.54 min. Splendid sound quality - new and careful 20-bit re-mastering.
This 2 CD set is an absolute delight. Mastered from a high a resolution 24 bit master - the sound quality is perfect and very easy on the ear.
Making a tracklisting, formatting the song order is an art, and with both CDs in this set in my opinion they have achieved this philosophy and we have a fantastic double CD compilation with each song complementing the one before it, with songs from 1954, 1955 and 1956.
In the packaging department, unlike Sony BMG's pathetic effort with the recent Early Elvis, that not only did not have a booklet, not even a folded cover insert -- but simply a one piece paper insert that is easily damaged upon opening he case -- this double CD set comes with a four page booklet that does not move on opening. Also the front back and disc art is very nice. BMG take note!!! The only down side to this set is the booklet just mentioned, it does contain some mistakes, such as claiming Elvis' first number one (Country chart) was 'Mystery Train' rather than the flip side 'I Forgot To Remember To Forget' which was the one that reached the top of the charts for Elvis first in February 1956.
With 20 tracks on each disc and a playing time of around 47 minutes on each the producers have also settled on what I have always found to be the perfect length.
If you like Elvis' 50s recordings - and who does not! then we recommend this set very highly.
