Yes dismas, although in my first posting I did not specify, your comments were the reason I opted for the Australian track listing as opposed to the US version. At least the Australian version contains more hits from both sides of the Atlantic (plus Australian Hits of course) than the US version does. In fact, in my opinion why not go the whole gamut and include ALL the hits from around the world! If I remember well, back in the 60's "No More" was a No.1 hit in South Africa!! An E-4 perhaps?! And KeithJ, just a small correction. What "new songs"? We all have these songs a hundred times over don't we?. But if they remaster all the tracks using the latest (DSD?) technology I surely wouldn't mind owning the 15th copy of "The Girl Of My Best Friend"!

I'm with you EJF, it's the same old BMG (RCA), lets re-release the same records and just add a couple of new songs to try and tempt the fans into buying the album, the only way I will buy this CD is if it is released separately.

SuziB good(with apologies to chuck berry)! But I agree with EJF -- I'm not buying another "deluxe-priced" box-set just to have the third disc in my collection. The brevity of the American release also troubles me. Yes, I understand that they're all Billboard (read: USA) Top 20 hits; however, that wasn't the original concept precedent set with E-1. That disc collected American AND BRITISH #1's. So, the obvious question needs to be asked: Why isn't E-3 (which this is, whether they want to call it that, or not)also a blend of American & British hit singles that rose to the top 20 in their respective charts? Just asking.

Could be a nice gift to the kids for Xmas to get them started with their Elvis-collection. But to us hardcore fans it's just the Colonel painting birds yellow and then selling them as canaries -:)

Suspicion was a UK hit in 76 not 77. It was the same year 'Girl of My Best Friend' also made the UK Top 10. Suspicion was also on the Lp Elvis In Demand the same year.

"Suspicion" is dated 1977 because that is when it was a chart hit. Although it was released as a single in America in the sixties, it was not a regular release and was in RCA's Gold Standard series. In the UK, "Suspicion" was the single release prior to "Moody Blue" and did very well on the charts. This would also explain "It's Only Love" being dated 1980. This great track was denied a UK release in 1971, and was first released as a single here in 1980 to promote the "Elvis Aron Presley" box set. It became Elvis' highest posthumous UK single release up until "A Little Less Conversation".

Suspicion - 1977 ?

Tempting I know, but I will stand firm and will NOT buy the whole set and get Discs 1 and 2 for the upteenth time just to have Disc 3. If the powers-that-be should consider releasing the third disc by itself, and use the Australian track listing, together with DSD Mastering technology I would definitley add it to my collection. So take note BMG/Sony.
