The King of Compilations and soon to be the King of Tin Cans. Very sad what has happened to the catalog. No respect is shown by the label so why should the rest of the world show some?

dgirl you are spot on

This looks like a sardine can with the King's pic on it. Obviously geared to low IQ fans. A shame the Camden's were not released in these cans. They go together like pork & beans. A new all time low. How many more times will this be released? They could put it in a wood box, a glass box, & maybe a little casket box so some of the dullards can tale it with them when they go. What a lack of respect the label shows for their greatest artist. And some fools will go along with this charade & buy this POS. The Beatles get the deluxe treatment & the King gets a tin. A shame!

oldscudder your are wrong. It looks more like a breath mint tin than a sardine can.

SteveV we were both wrong I hear it's selling like gang busters in the canned pet food aisle at the Piggly Wiggly.

At least there's one positive...all the songs are great. Just last week i saw a John Lennon tin.

So, now all of a sudden this has become a bad compilation because of the wrapping? How come?

Who said it was bad compilation? Where did you read that? We are talking about the packaging. Did we really need this in a tin can after its been released at least 3 different times already? Thats what we are talking about here. An actuallyl good compilation is now reduced to a supermarket aisle joke.

bajo. the complication is good. However the tin makes the Elvis fans that buy this a laughing stock. It's a must item in all trailer camps.

I cannot resist this release any longer. It was never essential for me as it only duplicates stuff i have a zillion times but that ol' tin got me. You crafty so and so's BMG, you found my weak spot - i gotta have 10 of these beauties (not!!).

This is the #1 seller at trailor camps all over America. It's actually taken over Elvis statues, wallpaper & garbage cans.
