I agree KingOfSpades, they can't milk this complilation much more, I have the original, special edition, DVD, Hitstory, don't think I will buy this. Good thing the general public doesn't know.

The Core Elvis fans forget that CD is targeted to the general record buying public. Do not forget that it was the general record buying public which made "A Little less convesation" and "Rubberneckin" huge hits. It was they who placed the reissues of Elvis's number one hits in the top five in the U.K.charts. If BMG wanted to release new material then there would not have been any albums after 1977 - 78 period. Sure it is milking the cow. But the milk is targeted to the general public. And the record buying public changes from generation to generation. We as the core fans do not have to buy these stuff. However it is the general record buying public who decides which record would be a hit and what would be a faliure. Also I hear that there would be an Album of remixed hits released in conjunction with Elvis"s 30th death annivasary, I hope it would be a huge hit among the general public and there would be hit singles as well. Thanks & Best Regards

I agree to a point Elviz about being aimed the mass market. Problem is this particular compilation is now making it's 4th reincarnation since 2002, which is hardly a generation. I fear the general public may think he only ever recorded 31 songs!
