The set ends with three CDs of so-called rarities "From The Vaults"and this is where these bonus tracks really belonged. These final discs should have been single-only sides and masters released after Elvis's death.
And they would have been a fun listen. As it is, these final discs are a truly unmitigated mess see tracklisting belowswitching from poor sounding TV recordings to stellar sounding studio recordings to distorted private recordings and then back again.
Fans already have this material, and the more general buyer is not likely to have any interest in it — and the switching in sound quality from one thing to the next make them almost unplayable. And these decisions are the biggest problem of the set. And that's all I have listed so far: the problems. Fortunately, there is still more things right with this set than wrong with it.
The card sleeves for each CD are clean and crisp in their presentation of the original album artwork. The page book hardback is laid out very nicely and contains full track listings, recordings dates, sessionography and discography as well as a wealth of pictures and historical documents. Album) not known when these were remastered, although they seem to derive from the same versions as used in the The Complete Masters chronological boxed set of Elvis's recordings and on the 20CD soundtrack box - but there are also some improvements on those on more problematic items.
For example, the original mix of Blue River used for the and soundtrack sets contains distortion just as it did on initial release in That distortion has gone, and the sound is as clear as a bell.
Also, some of the soundtracks, which often sounded poor, sound better here than they have done before, with significant improvements on something like Frankie and Johnnyfor example, while still retaining the original mix.
The majority of the tracks are of the same fabulous audio quality as The Complete Masters by Vic Anesini and with some of the noted audio errors having been fixed. So while these are of a lesser audio quality than on The Complete Masters, they do represent what was on the original releases. Additionally, the bass drum during the final third of said tune is more pronounced, resulting in a profound listening experience.
The studio recordings it must be said are exceptional. Furthermore, nuances previously unheard are abound with organs, tambourines, harmonica, bass and in particular his voice, defined in super clear sparkling sound. Offering contrast but ultimately two sides of the same coin. Play loud!!!! Ultimately, the release of this is a case of "about time. There is the fall into the often-awful soundtrack albums - and yet each one still contained a gem or two with the exception of Harum Scarum.
But then there is the rise again in the late s in a remarkable run of Elvis's most adult albums - but this box reminds us all too well that these were interspersed by compilations of the soundtracks. Bythe passion of the comeback had gone and Elvis's recording career seemed to be as much of a chore for him as anything else - but his best work was still outstanding, even it was thrown together on hodge-podge albums with bland covers.
What this box does is remind us LP some point on LP single CD why Elvis was so great and so important, but it also reminds us why, despite that, LP, he was still an under-achiever.
Tracks that should have stayed in the vaults were issued, such as the half-finished, awful Hey Jude that became an album filler on Elvis Now some three years after it was recorded so much for Elvis NOW.
And yet at all points in his career there were great moments, even towards the end there came the enjoyable country album, Todayand even his penultimate LP, the lamentable From Elvis Presley Boulevard Memphis Tennesseecontains one of the most poignant renditions of Danny Boy you are ever likely to hear. Even in those soundtracks years, an album such as Spinout has one of the greatest of all Bob Dylan covers hidden away as a bonus track.
And all of these frustrations and paradoxes are laid bare on these 60 discs which present Elvis's albums in the chronological order of their release. The other, rather unexpected, thing about the box is that it makes us hear things slightly differently to how we are used to hearing them. So many Elvis sets over the last twenty-five years have been in chronological order of when they were recorded, meaning we would get all of the songs from Easy Come Easy Go together, for example.
Overall Verdict: Despite its faults, this is a must for a fan building their collection you're not going to get all this any cheaper or for the more general buyer with a genuine interest in rock n roll, country or blues.

To commemorate that occasion, Legacy Recordings has released 'Elvis Presley - The Album Collection', the disc whiich spans the entire run of his 21 years with the label. Legacy senior vice president John Jackson talked to Billboard concerning the thought process of assembling the set. What we decided to do was hone it down to what would be considered a new album with new material that was released during his lifetime.
There is also 3 discs of stray material that either were never on LPs or was discovered after he passed away.
At that point, he was trying to do songs that spoke to him and not just ones that were pitched to him by his publisher. During that time, he was getting into some deep stuff, though the albums were so unfortunately packaged. People wondered how to tell the difference. There were studio album and live albums, and all of them looked like the same record, though they were different.
It gives people an idea of what you would have bought when the record first came out. Little things like that are something I feel that people will find fascinating. Despite all the troubles he had in the '70s, including fights with the label, how they were promoting him and how they made him feel, he was still cutting great stuff.
