harder rock in roll hits. All songs on this album fit safely into the rock category of the mid 1950's to early 1960's and would be considered rock by more people if the music came out at a later time. I recommend this Elvis Presley complication to everyone, literally. it is great music from the king of rock and roll and it contains:
20 top essential songs and is about 42 minutes long
Let me say that i DO like nearly all of the songs on this collection. However, several are not exactly representative of Elvis' ROCKIN' songs. Songs like Don't Be Cruel, All Shook Up, Party, Wear My Ring, and I Got Stung were really more pop numbers. No real guitar solos, no Elvis screeching and hollaring, no Elvis getting down and dirty. They're great songs, but not really rock n roll.
There ARE however, several songs not included that COULD have been, which are MORE representative of Elvis the Rocker, than some songs on this collection: My Baby Left Me, Money Honey, Lawdy Miss Clawdy, and ummmm..... JAILHOUSE ROCK??? Those all come to mind as very representaive of his Rockin' 50's recordings.
Luckily, the bulk of this CD ARE true rockers, but they could have easily assembled a better collection. Do what i did. Get the Complete 50's Masters USED on amazon, then burn your own compilations on CD.
