All of them. Actually if you enjoy Gospel he has the best records of gospel ever recorded.
"Gospel music is the purest thing there is on this earth," Elvis Presley once said.
How Great Thou Art Audio CD has 16 great songs including grammy winner :"How great thou art"
Good place to start is Essential Elvis Presley CD

We can only thank God that you are not a film critic. SO your opinion is just that. And not a very honest one.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Elvis Presley fans from as far as Japan and Brazil gathered Tuesday in Memphis to sing "Happy Birthday" to the rock 'n' roll icon on the day he would have turned 78.
He may be in a town near you.

I posted this on the wrong Elvis thread. I get so confused sometimes.

Anyway, Elvis liked Hawaii because it was the farthest the Colonel would allow Elvis to go (outside the army) that was still on American soil.

I actually like most of his Hawaii stuff. "Blue Hawaii" is one of my favorite films of his. I can actaully see him enjoying himself in this one.

"Paradise, Hawaiian style" however, is just silly.

Another of Elvis' color movies that I rate highly is "Follow that dream".

This was the closest Elvis came to acting like who he really might have been.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ELVIS!

I'm ashamed to admit I have no Elvis on my computer or ipod. But I found this CD in my husband's collection -"Elvis An Afternoon in the Garden".

It reminds me a bit of the Hawaii Concert you posted. It's a 1972 Madison Square Garden Concert, so that was the year before the Hawaii one. And it caught my eye that it starts with the same "2001: A Space Odyssey" intro. That seems odd for Elvis, but he must have liked it! And the playlist is shorter but seems to have a lot of the same songs .

The new Hawaii Concert release looks like a great CD. Probably be cool to see it on DVD, too bad That is out of print.

If Elvis were still alive in some alternate universe, I wonder if he'd still be performing, or making albums at 78?

re: "Another sign of the apocalypse: people are actually sitting around waiting and hoping for ELVIS FAN to appear"

LOLOLove it. I especially like it when he shows up with his cross and wearin' his best polyester Elvis suit. He sets up his little ladder, climbs up there and his assistant nails him to it. Then it begins, he starts preachin' the Word of Elvis. "CAN I GET A WITNESS?" You gotta admit, the man does know how to draw a crowd.

Happy Birthday ELVIS ! YOU ARE THE GREATEST ! and you are also 78 TODAY!
*************************************************************

Looks like the King's love for Hawaii lives on... Elvis's birthday is today and it's marked by a new CD release commemorating his legacy in Hawaii.

"Aloha From Hawaii via Satellite: Legacy Edition" marks the 40th anniversary of the one-hour satellite broadcast Elvis made from the Honolulu International Center Arena (now known as the Blaisdell Arena) in January 1973.

Putting it in some perspective, the show marked the first time that a full-length concert was broadcast around the world. It broke records, reaching over 40 countries with a viewing audience of roughly 1.5 billion people worldwide.

The release package is the first time that the Aloha From Hawaii via Satellite show will be coupled with The Alternate Aloha, another live performance. The double-CD package will be available March 19, 2013 through RCA/Legacy.

There has never been, not now or ever will be anyone to compare to Elvis. His range of vocals far surpasses any other entertainer bar none. I love his music!

Elvis Presley fans from as far as Japan and Brazil gathered Tuesday in Memphis to sing "Happy Birthday" to the late rock 'n' roll icon on the day he would have turned 78.

Hundreds of Elvis devotees watched as 13-year-old Isabella Scott cut a birthday cake on the lawn at Graceland, the singer's longtime Memphis home. Scott heads an Internet-based Elvis fan club with more than 2,000 members.

The mayors of Memphis and Shelby County also read a proclamation of Elvis Presley Day during the ceremony, which was attended by fans from Brazil, England, France, Japan, Spain and the U.S.
Now over 50 years he still is the greatest artist who ever lived and still growing number of fans celebrate his music and his birthday!
Long live the King of Rock n' Roll who broke down every barrier so other artists could walk through!
Nobody singular or group Revolutionized the way we see and hear music, and no one ever will. He still is on top of the world!

Very few people give Elvis fair due for his expertise on the minnie uke.

"Aloha From Hawaii" is a good one to start with.

Stephen,
I agree with you. IMO, the best way to get into Elvis is the way that most of us did. Start with Heartbreak Hotel, and his 1950's RCA hits. Then go back to his original Sun records. Though Elvis made some good music later, I think his 50's music is by far his best.

doodah man: i haven't been paying attention to this elvis man so im' not familiar but i was looking for a more expansive collection than the 30 1#'s that would cover his whole career but something that would do a fine job of covering the sun and rca 50's years as those ultimately are my favorite from the king.
i've always been more of a Beatles fan but i'm starting to acquire a liking for elvis.
truly a great singer and certain moments truly define what rock n' roll singing is all about (jailhouse rock, one night etc...)
i ended up finding the artist of the century still in shrinkwrap for a dollar and i thought it's hard to believe so hopefully it will turn out to be that and not boxcar willie does elvis.
i am interested in getting from elvis in memphis as i heard it's amazing and also to get some of his other albums outside of compilations. what other albums are great top to bottom?

You do indeed need a collection of his Sun recordings as others suggested as well. While many people sight this as Elvis's best period I don't think it is the place to START. I am not saying these are not classic and important recordings because they are. I just think if I wanted to introduce someone to Elvis I would start with some of the obvious biggies like Heartbreak Hotel, Jailhouse Rock, All Shook Up, ETC. THEN, after they devoured that I would suggest the Sun recordings. Of course one may make a sound argument they those Sun records came first and should be introduced first and that well may be correct. But I think that they may be appreciated even more by going backwards and starting with the classic RCA stuff. I actually tend to listen to the Sun stuff even more because I don't hear it nearly as often. Either way, these are great examples of early rock n roll!
