Album Remarks & Appraisals:
2007 installment in Snapper's Complete Rock 'N' Roll series that features striking artwork, comprehensive sleeve notes and original recordings. This collection from The King Of Rock 'N' Roll features 21 classics including 'Heartbreak Hotel', 'Hound Dog', 'Blue Suede Shoes', 'That's Alright (Mama)' and many more. Snapper.
Elvis compilations are a dime a dozen, but this budget collection from Snapper's Complete Rock 'n' Roll series gives a pretty good dose of the King at his youthful best. It may seem that 21 tracks are a mere second in Presley's storied career, but "That's Alright Mama," "Blue Moon," "Hound Dog," and "Don't Be Cruel" are essential cogs in the machine. ~ James Christopher Monger
