5.0 out of 5 stars 4-CD anthology shines as brightly as a King's crown December 27, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Elvis was not only the king of Rock `n' Roll (Little Richard's claim on the crown notwithstanding), but in his afterlife he has also become the undisputed king of reissues and anthologies. RCA's four-CD set, spanning from his earliest self-funded acetates through late home recordings and live sides, his last major studio works and a post-mortem remix, offers no new tracks for Presley's legions of collectors, but provides a superb introduction and deep overview for anyone who's heard about, rather than heard, the King. Those who know a few hits or have sat through an Elvis movie or two will find the greatness of his musical catalog measures up to the hype and explains the dedication of his most ardent fans.

Collected here are one hundred tracks, beginning with Presley's very first recording, "My Happiness," waxed on his own dime as a gift for his mother. His earliest commercial sides show how he forged hillbilly, blues and country roots into his personal strand of rock `n' roll, first for Sun with Scotty Moore and Bill Black, and then, with the addition of D.J. Fontana on drums and A-list guests like Floyd Cramer and Chet Atkins, for RCA. These early works aren't so much primitive as they are elemental - the lack of production pomp or circumstance presents Elvis as an unadorned and raw rock `n' roll spirit. The addition of a backing vocal trio, as can first be heard on 1956's "I Was the One," showed a crooning side of Elvis that would continue to reappear even as he continued to explore rockabilly and blues.

From the 50s through the 70s Elvis moved through a variety of producer's hands and a number of different studios, and got something different from each.

5.0 out of 5 stars Elvis 75-Good Rockin' Tonight December 17, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As far as I can tell, "Good Rockin' Tonight" may be the most complete Elvis collection yet, beginning with "That's all Right Mama" 1n 1954 and ending with with his 2002 hit which was a remix of a song called "A Little Less Conversation". Included are most of his greatest songs along with some that are not as well known but valid anyway. Unfortunately, two of his greatest tracks, "Trying To Get To You" from 1956 and "The Wonder of You" from 1969 are not on this collection which forced me to buy the MP3 versions, burn them onto CDRs, and put them in the box with the other four CDs. If you can handle picking your favorite Elvis tracks that are not on this collection (and there will be some-let's face it!) and burning them onto CDRs to complete YOUR collection, then "Good Rockin' Tonight-Elvis 75" is well worth the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars looks like an essential purchase to me !!! January 8, 2010
Format:Audio CD
This awesome and well done compilation is one of the best Elvis box sets out there bar none! Elvis could have belted out the phone book and I'd have been there, standing and applauding all the way through! You'll find so many different styles of music that Elvis loved to perform here: rockabilly, rhythm and blues, bluegrass, rock `n' roll and even more! I like that this four CD box set has that very early recording of "My Happiness" which Elvis had to pay to record for his mother before he became well known; then we get both very big Elvis hits as well as a number of his lesser known gems. The quality of the sound is excellent and the artwork is very nicely done. Inside the box there is an eighty page booklet; there's an essay by Billy Altman along with photos, reproductions of artwork and much, much more.

There's something for every Elvis fan here. Like music from his movies? No problem; there's a lot of that here. Whether it be his music from the movies he starred in "Jailhouse Rock" with Elvis really rocking to that a great beat and a musical interlude that couldn't be better; "King Creole" from the movie of the same name with that male backup that works perfectly as well as "Trouble" and "Head Headed Woman" which come from "King Creole;" and "Viva Las Vegas" from the movie of the same name, Elvis never skips a beat! He never lets go of a single superfluous note and his excellent diction combined with his sophisticated phrasing makes these songs and all the others brilliant. Elvis invariably sings with great passion and you can tell he's singing from the heart with just one listen!

Of course, with four CDs packed to the brim as they are here, there's so much more here by Elvis than just some songs from his movies.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Boxed Set I've Ever Bought August 3, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This review is for "Elvis 75-Good Rockin' Tonight" [Box set] - I was always a "casual" fan of Elvis Presley. I've heard most of his big hits all my life. But when TCM premiered the re-edited and remastered version of "Elvis: That's the Way It Is" this year (2010), in celebration of Elvis's 75th birthday, I saw Elvis with different eyes and ears. Priscilla Presley was a guest and was promoting this boxed set too, but I still didn't buy it right away. I did research on Amazon and read many reviews. I played clips of lots of Elvis's songs. Then I made my decision. This boxed set had the best collection of Elvis's music for the money. When I received the boxed set, and played each song, I was blown away. I could not believe what I was hearing. I had no idea Elvis was this good. No wonder he was considered "The King". I listened to songs that I've heard before but not like this. I heard small details that I've never noticed before. The people that put this collection together did a fantastic job. I highly recommend this boxed set to even the most casual Elvis fan, even if you only think you liked "some" of his music. Buy this CD collection without hesitation. A+

This seems to be a mistake with the providers metadata, the box set itself does have the 50's Elvis on the cover, what Amazon (and other providers) are displaying as cover art here is the cover of the booklet that comes with the box. That said there are supposed to be different import versions... Read More
