Editorial Reviews

The recorded legacy of Elvis Presley continues to be discovered by new generations that never saw him or heard him perform live. It's hard to appreciate that he started so much of what we take for granted now in popular music. Until 1956, the teenagers of suburban America, and the rest of the world, had to endure ditties by Rosemary Clooney and Perry Como but everything was about to be tossed upside down. On January 28 on a cold night in New York, Elvis took America by storm as he appeared on CBS-TV's Stage Show hosted by Jimmy and Tommy Dorsey. On February 4 for his second appearance he sang a song that literally changed the world of popular music "Heartbreak Hotel". Its unique sound and style literally blew everything before it away while at the same time inducing the blueprint for everything that was to come; by April, it would be #1 on Billboard. This incredible step-change in musical history resonated around the world and while liberating millions of young adolescent teenagers it also inspired many successful artists of today to pick a guitar or sing - everyone wanted to be like Elvis. The pure spontaneity of these seminal recordings shows through even today; "Heartbreak Hotel", Don't Be Cruel", "Hound Dog", "Blue Suede Shoes" and "My Baby Left Me" are some of the greatest rock 'n' roll records ever made. Elvis' unprecedented level of achievement is still the benchmark by which artistic success is measured today and YOUNG MAN WITH THE BIG BEAT is testament to the phenomenon and cultural icon that is Elvis Presley.

-2 CD's of original digitally remastered RCA master recordings

Eighteen months after bursting into the music world with "That's All Right," Elvis moved from the indie Sun label to the major leagues of RCA. A month-and-a-half later, in January 1956, he entered the a Nashville studio and began a year that included two chart-topping albums (Elvis Presley and Elvis), three chart-topping singles (five, if you include the Country chart), several more top-fives and fifteen total chart entries among two dozen singles. That's in addition to live and television performances that made him the most famous person in the world. Five decades later, according to RCA, he remains the best-selling artist of all time, with over a billion records sold. He's certainly among the most reissued, but with a catalog as lengthy and rich as Elvis Presley's, it's rewarding to view it from multiple angles.

RCA/Legacy's 5-CD set focuses solely on the transformative year of 1956, collecting its the first two discs the thirty-nine master recordings Elvis issued that year. The original track lists of Elvis Presley (which combines seven sides cut expressly for RCA and five previously cut for Sun) and Elvis (cut in three September days in Hollywood) start discs one and two, respectively. Each of these discs is filled out with non-LP singles, B-sides and EP tracks.

The previous reviewer stole my thunder, although I would like to make a couple of corrections: the Elvis Presley: Legacy Edition does not contain the last three tracks from the LOVE ME TENDER EP: "Let Me," "Poor Boy," and "We're Gonna Move." Otherwise, both sets have the same track listing for the master recordings. Note to Amazon: Your track listing for the Legacy Edition omits "Blue Moon," which was on the original album and is on the new CD; this needs to be corrected. UPDATE: It has been.

Even if you own this material on other collections (such as The King of Rock 'n' Roll: The Complete 50's Masters), it's nice to have all of the material from the King's first big year in one collection, including the first two albums in their original running order (The King of Rock 'n' Roll: The Complete 50's Masters presented the material in the order that it was recorded), plus live recordings, studio outtakes, and interviews that were not on the former set. There are even pictures of some of Elvis' UK and other foreign releases that appeared on EMI's His Master's Voice (HMV) imprint, which had a licensing agreement with RCA that dated back to the earliest days of the Gramophone Company, Ltd. (which merged with the Columbia Graphophone Company, the former UK subsidiary of the U.S. Columbia, to form Electrical and Musical Industries, Ltd. (EMI) in 1931, and the Victor Talking Machine Company (which merged with the Radio Corporation of America (RCA) in 1929).

Casual fans would be content with the box sets such as the complete 50's, 60's and 70's. By casual I mean those who love the music but aren't necessarily a collector. Superficial fans will most likely by the 30#1 hits and 2nd to none and be happy. But, boy look what they are missing out on. Anyone who knows me knows I love music. When I die, I'd love to leave my collection to someone who appreciates music as much as I do and will add to it. My music represents my life, my tastes and everything I love. Elvis has always been the one thing mostly everyone in my family could have in common, we grew up listening to Elvis. When he died, it was like losing a family member. That being said, I am obviously biased towards his music, but that doesn't mean I'm an easy sell. This collection impresses me. Sure we may have some or most of this music on different compilations. Sure we do. But, do we have everything from that year compiled in one place showcasing the birth of not only Rock but of the most celebrated artist of our time? or any time for that matter? I love this as it is a time capsule. Taking one year of the man's life and distilling it down to the albums, the singles and the photos. We get to live that year with him. Given details of all the major steps in his blossoming career. Many today see so many artist make it big, have huge record sales and then die off, they have never really been witness to the rise of a true star with staying power. He had real talent and charisma and a stage presence that is second to none. aside from maybe Prince, who nowadays is known for their live shows? who's shows consistently sell out? and how many of them can actually perform with such a high level of energy and NOT lip sync? No one.Read more ›
