Originally released in 1963, GOLDEN RECORDS VOLUME 3 contains nearly all of Elvis' top 10 hits released between his 1960 return from military service and early 1962. It was during this period that Elvis last topped the charts consistently; soon, the British invasion and a string of sub-par movie soundtracks would reduce both his stature and his record sales. GOLDEN RECORDS VOLUME 3 shows off the full range of Elvis' talent, with ballads ("Are You Lonesome Tonight?"), rockers ("Little Sister," "I Feel So Bad"), pop ("Stuck On You," "I Gotta Know") and even operatic songs ("It's Now Or Never," "Surrender") represented among the disc's twelve tracks. The album was issued on CD in 1989 and was subsequently remastered and re-reissued in 1997 with eight additional tracks.
