A single-disc condensation of the four-disc box Elvis 75 - Good Rockin' Tonight, Elvis 75 runs a generous 25 cuts spanning the entirety of Presley’s career, beginning with “That’s All Right” and concluding with “Always on My Mind.” Most of Presley’s signatures are here, particularly from his glorious early years (the first ten tracks are all from 1955-1957), but the second half of the compilation skews ever so slightly to his oversized show-stoppers, which means this gives a lasting impression of Elvis the Vegas headliner instead of Elvis the rocker, and whether that’s a problem or not is all a matter of taste. What does count is that almost all of these 25 songs are excellent, making this a good, if not definitive, sampler. (AllMusic Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine )
