Here is a glittering collection fit for a king -- in this case, the undisputed, Once and Future King of Rock 'n' Roll. To commemorate the 75th anniversary of the birth of Elvis Aaron Presley, Elvis 75 - Good Rockin' Tonight is the definitive retrospective, a remastered Hot 100 of Elvis classics in one beautifully-packaged four-CD boxed set.
Spanning the breadth of Presley's monumental, rags-to-riches career, Elvis 75 - Good Rockin' Tonight presents an artist who exploded in the mid-1950s, when he shook up a buttoned-down world with his mold-breaking music, not to mention his sideburns, swiveling hips, flamboyant wardrobe, and raw sexuality. Until his death at 42 in 1977, he would move from rockabilly, rhythm and blues, bluegrass, and rock 'n' roll to country, pop, gospel, and even to light operatic fare to become one of the greatest and most-beloved entertainers the world has ever known. He would also sell several hundred million records.
This definitive set has the chart-topping hits, numbers from his movies, deep cuts from various gold and platinum albums, and exciting in-concert performances. Featuring rare photographs and an incisive essay by respected music writer Billy Altman, Elvis 75 repeatedly demonstrates that, to paraphrase one of his more famous album titles, 50,000,000 Elvis fans -- and counting -- can't be wrong.
