Overview

Yes, Elvis fans have been confronted with a dizzying array of retrospectives over the years since the King's death, but few have had as much going for them as this jam-packed single-disc collection. While the title implies it's merely a plain-old "best of," Elvis 30 #1 Hits goes a lot further -- particularly as regards the sound quality, boosted by careful tweaking of original master tapes so that even much-heard favorites like "Don't Be Cruel" and "All Shook Up" leap from the speakers with increased zest. The revamping process is most evident on the set's ballads: The way the vocals are moved to the fore on "A Fool Such as I" and "The Wonder of You" focuses attention even more squarely on the King's raw sensuality. In terms of content, the disc picks up where the label's previous Elvis Number Ones left off, expanding the track listing by a baker's dozen by allowing for the inclusion of Presley chart-toppers from other countries and from genres other than pop. As such, '70s rave-ups like "Burnin' Love" and "Way Down" make the grade, as does the swelling "In the Ghetto." Rounded out by the recently uncovered -- and radically remixed -- "A Little Less Conversation," 30 #1 Hits doesn't merely preserve the legacy of Elvis Presley; it gives it a new vivacity, a power guaranteed to propel the music forward for some time to come.
