The press release:
Sony BMG will release 'Hitstory,' an 80-track, three CD set of Elvis Presley's chart hits. Spanning his entire career from 1954's "That's All Right" to 1976's "Way Down," this deluxe three-disc set combines two landmark collections of Elvis's indispensable smash hits with a brand new compilation of more essential Top 20 singles. 'Hitstory' features Elvis' popular hits and recent chart-topping remixes, including "Heartbreak Hotel," "Hound Dog," "Love Me Tender," "Blue Suede Shoes," "Jailhouse Rock," "A Little Less Conversation," and 74 other iconic Presley hits.
Discs one and two of 'Hitstory' are made up of 'ELVIS 30 #1 HITS' and 'ELVIS 2ND TO NONE,' which went to #1 and #3 respectively on the Billboard 200 chart. The fastest-selling album of Presley's career, 'ELVIS 30 #1 HITS' went triple platinum within months of its 2002 release and went on to sell more than 9 million copies worldwide, proving that Elvis Presley is still a major name in the 21st century. Meanwhile, 2003's platinum 'Elvis 2nd To None' delves deeper into the King's hit-making legacy with more #1 singles, career milestones and fan favorites.
Disc three, 'The Story Continues,' is a brand new compilation showcasing nineteen Top 20 singles from the Billboard Top 100. With hits from all three decades in which Presley recorded, 'The Story Continues' is an essential collection.
'Hitstory' is digitally remastered using DSD Technology for optimum sound quality.
This three-disc collection is the perfect gift. It comes in a magnificent and elegant hard-bound package with iconic Elvis imagery and a collectable poster. This package is set to cap off a big year for Elvis.
