1 StarAt this point BMG (Buy My Garbage) was testing the waters to see what the Elvis fan would add to his/her collection. This was around the beginning of their pocket picking stage.

5 Stars5 Stars5 Stars5 Stars5 StarsWith that legendary line-up of classic hits, I can't imagine anyone rating it so low. I picked it up used a few years ago for just a few dollars just as a keepsake or something to give away. With the never-ending glut of hit-packages, this is just one of many long-since forgotten. But to its credit, for those of you into (or aware) Americana, the somewhat (purposely-) ugly cover is meant to conjure a shabby bar or tavern or "hole in the wall" in Anytown, USA -complete with old '70s-era fake wood paneling for the walls. The back-cover (not shown) depicts the song titles with the labels as if you would (and occasionally still can) see in an actual juke-box, so that part is especially effective. So if a library or a novice came across this set, I can't say it's a bad start. But given the advances in sound in the decade since its release, there are so many albums that would be better hit packages. But on the retro-jukebox anti-art and track-list, I find it hard to pan this release. But is RCA (et al) guilty of a glut of hit collections for the King ? You betcha.
