Had I been a part of that survey, Little Egypt would have been dropped, and replaced with 'Hurt' or a few others that come to mind.

I've been gone, but now I'm back temporarily. I had to respond to the posters who've got their shorts in a knot. This release will be a 2 cd set with 40 tracks. There's still about another month to vote for your favorite song. This is not the final Top Ten list. I expect there will be changes before all the votes are counted and the FINAL Top 40 trackl ist is finalized. Therefore, "Hurt" and others may indeed make the final cut. I remind everyone that this is an Aussie release and "Edge Of Reality" hit the Top 10 there. One big difference between this release and "I Am An Elvis Fan" is that this release allows you to vote on all the masters not just selected list of songs. It will be interesting to see what the final Top 40 track list turns out to be.

I love the fact that Edge of Reality is in the Top 10. I hope to see even more unusual songs on this compilation - it will be nice to see a different variety, and I hope it does very well in the charts.

Edge of Reality, I am proud to say, is one of my favorite Elvis songs. I wish the website let us vote for this song, for the CD, they are doing here in the United States. Little Egypt, I would pass on for the collection, however.

My suggestion to include Old Shep wasn't that ackward after all....

few years ago we had the dutch collection. Only the hits are included. BMG at that time was affraid that the general public won't buy it when it contains only less known songs. I think this will be the same. Where are the real good songs and fan favorites ?. But Little Egypt as a fan favorite i can understand ,it's a nice song.Nothing more. I hope they do it not like BMG Holland. But comes with the real choices of his fans.

A great cover, title and ideal, to be serious for a moment I really hope Reconsider Baby, Let It Be Me or Unchained Melody are on it instead of the same hits over and over again. Why couldn’t we have a similar 2 disc 40 tracks for other counties instead of the one disc I Am An Elvis Fan fiasco?
