Elvis Presley is rock & roll. It doesn't get simpler than that. Presley was one of the prime architects of the music. As such, he influenced several generations both musically and socially. The songs presented here are among his finest. The urgency in Presley's voice is just one part of the equation. The ease with which he swings through the material tells the rest of the story. Equal parts balladeer and rockabilly king, Elvis played both sides of the fence. He was both tender Love Man and hard-hitting rebel. As this collection proves, his genius was in the way he made it work.
