Elvis Presley – 30 #1 Hits

Well kids, that post heading ought to tell you all you need to know.

What did this collection mean to me? It’s a time machine, zapping me back to my childhood and my mother’s old Rock-Ola jukebox full of 45s. We heard a lot of Elvis. A lot.

From Heartbreak Hotel to Way Down, this is 30 tracks of just damn good music. You knew that. The only odd things were two-fold:

1) To me, Wooden Heart is not a hit. It sounds like it was recorded by Elvis fronting a band of cajun gypsies with their own tuba section. It’s just… weird.

2) The inclusion of Junkie XL’s updating of A Little Less Conversation, tacked onto the end as track 31, is a bit whacked. Seriously, you spend a whole disc just enjoying the King, and then…

I am so happy for another excuse to link you to this bit of internet gold.

Honestly. I will never get tired of that.

In sum: For a single disc, this set does a pretty damn good job. Fun.
