5.0 out of 5 stars Valuable for many reasons December 6, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I'm a huge fan of Elvis' music. I've got quite a collection of his stuff from the 50s through the 70s, and I can vouch for the quality of music throughout the period in which he recorded his music. Most comp CD's are a waste of time and money, but this one is quite an exception. The mark of a good CD or collection is the amount of use it gets over a long period of time, and for its diversity, it should get plenty of wear. The Hollywood CD will contain songs that you won't find on most other albums. Big Boots, Pocketful of Rainbows, a slower version of Girl Happy, Black Star, I Slipped, Stumbled and Fell...great songs from a variety of his movies. The booklet has a nice write up of each CD. The Nashville CD has some great songs as well..and some outtakes you'll enjoy. It gives you a fresh perspective of Elvis that's unfamiliar on a lot of his "Best Of" collections. Witchcraft, Just Tell Her Jim Said Hello, How Can you lose What You Never Had, the beautiful balad Love Letters, and many others make this CD and excellent collection. The Vegas CD has some interesting cuts...most notably, "Are You Lonesome Tonight", which has Elvis absolutely Losing It after lampooning one of the lines of the song. "Do you gaze at your bald head and wish you had hair" (Instead of "Do you gaze at your doorstep and picture me there"). I mean, he goes into hysterics...and when he tries to stop, it gets even worse. The background singers are still singing away, and Elvis is just cracking up...and when you listen to it, you'll be cracking up as well. I'm usually not much of a fan of the concert stuff, but this CD's pretty good...and again, Are You Lonesome Tonight makes the CD worth it.
Combined, the three CD set makes a great collection. It doesn't cover the 50's or the 70's, but it doesn't claim to. If you dig the King or know someone who does that doesn't have this collection, get it. It's a winner.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth It For The Vegas Disk Alone July 11, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This now hard to find Presley collection is absolutely true to it's title. "Collector's Gold," is a goldmine of rare material for the serious Elvis collector. I can't say enough about Disc Three, which includes highlights from his 1969 run at the International Hotel in Vegas. Not only does it include the infamous laughing version of, "Are You Lonesome Tonight?," but also, cuts you simply would never find on another Vegas release (Rubber Neckin', Inherit The Wind, and This is the Story...I rest my case). Mix this disc with the original '69 Vegas release, and you've got one helluva comp. As far as the other two discs, they include alternate takes of Elvis' 60s material (Hollywood on Disc One and Nashville on Disc Two). The one complaint I do have about the set is that there's only an average of about 45 minutes on each disc. However, they weren't loading discs with 76 minutes of stuff back when this was released in 1991. Other than that minor quibble, I believe, "Collector's Gold," to be an exemplary set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Elvis's finest! June 12, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
It is often said that Elvis's soundtracks do not amount to much. Well, this collection came to prove it otherwise. The first cd, with alternate versions of some of Elvis's film tunes show what a great musician he was and how a song did not have to be much of anything for Elvis to turn it into a masterpiece. The second one focus on the early studio recordings of the 60s. Excellent versions of excellent and average songs, but Elvis delivers them with real talent and a very soft, soothing voice. The third is the best: Elvis live in Vegas, in 1969. It is pure rock'n'roll, even when it's not! Some of Elvis's best live recordings ever are here, despite what his detractors would say. Elvis was in great shape, both physically and musically, and in here he sets the line between the king and the contenders. Whether you're an Elvis collector or simply someone who would like to have some of Elvis's best without having to purchase tons of boxes and cds, this is certainly your best go. Gold indeed!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Title Says It All March 19, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is an essential 3 CD set for any serious Elvis collector.
For some reason, it seems to be out of print, but can of course can be found online. It contains rare outtakes from his movies and a great concert that features his famous "laughing version" of "Are You Lonesome Tonight?" that cracks me up every time and is actually one of my favorite Elvis moments. He does "Runaway" in his concert and then introduces Del Shannon in the audience. He does a lot of songs he never usually did live like "Mystery Train", "Rubberneckin", "Aint it Funny How Time Slips Away" and "Inherit the Wind". His duet with Ann Margaret "You're The Boss" was a famous deleted track from their "Viva Las Vegas" movie and can usually only be found on big expensive box sets. Needless to say, there is nothing here for the casual listener, this one is strictly for the hardcore Elvis completionist fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars 14 years down the drain! January 31, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This was one of the earliest collections of rare Elvis material ever released. It features 50 (mostly) unreleased tracks from the 1960s. The set is broken up into three discs: Hollywood, Nashville and Live in Las Vegas. People often criticize the Hollywood (soundtrack) material from the '60s, and rightly so, but the songs here are well chosen and entertaining. They are alternate takes which are sometimes better than the takes that actually got used way back when. A lot of good material was recorded in Nashville in the '60s, so it's no surprise that this collection of alternate takes is very good. The Live in Las Vegas disc features songs recorded in August of 1969 at the International. Very good material, including the infamous "laughing" version of "Are You Lonesome Tonight". This collection really is "gold" for Elvis collectors.
