Like previous 'bookset' reissues of the 60s and 70s masters Boxes, there appear to be all 'pros' and very few 'cons' with this release. The content hasn't changed, simply reconfigured into the shelf-friendly DVD-sized 'bookset'. In total, tracks tell the story from the early Sun Records recordings, and the RCA signing, until Elvis put his recording career on hold when joined the army in The page booklet contains the same Peter Guralnick essay as the original, guiding us through Presley's career-defining early years Obeah Man A Rob Dem - Conroy Smith - Obeah Man A Rob Dem an informative and entertaining manner.
There is also a 'sessionograhy' detailing all the recording sessions, as well as a discography. An abundance of photos including album covers, posters, ticket stubs and record labels evoke the era perfectly. A minor quibble is the rather fiddly way the CDs are held in place with plastic sprung clips sitting below each disc, requiring a firm downwards tug at the top of each disc to release and re-seat each CD, but overall, this superb package just got a whole lot more attractive thanks to the excellent packaging.
This Essential Elvis Presley 5 CD set contains digitally remastered tracks, 15 of them previously unreleased mostly contained on Im Counting On You - Elvis* - The King Of Rock N Roll: The Complete 50s Masters 5, 'are And Rockin' and several others never before released on compact disc. Anyone who doubts the genius of Elvis Presley should listen all the way through this five-disc set before passing final judgment on the King of Rock and Roll.
Of the tracks here, precious few do not give testimony to Presley's enormous gift and enthusiasm for a wide variety of music, including pop, rock and roll, country, gospel, and rhythm and blues. From the first Sun recordings finally presented by RCA without the annoying overlay of additional reverb to the rushed singles session Presley cadged while on Army leave inThe King Of Rock 'N' Roll - The Complete 50's Masters radiates an energy, versatility, and awe-inspiring mastery rarely approached by his contemporaries--or any other pop singer, for that matter.
