Ok... getting in on this a little late. First, I Forgot to Remember to Forget? They should have remembered to forget... having this at the front of this CD just might turn off those younger listeners. Never really liked Feel So Bad, but no biggie. No real problem with the tracklisting overall. As for some that have been knocked... Kentucky Rain is an absolute must, Trilogy is essential Elvis, and Don't Cry Daddy & Always On My Mind (should have been the A Side) are awesome songs. My problem is what is not on here... If You Talk in Your Sleep is a killer song that appeals to a lot of younger music listeners. Also, Hurt is the essential final Elvis song and should be on here. Way too thin on the later 70's of course, for the last five years of Elvis' life we get two whole songs... don't get too generous! I'm telling you I am 28 and a lot of the Elvis music that my friends my age and younger like is the great 70's numbers: Steamroller (young people love this one) T-R-O-U-B-L-E, If You Talk in Your Sleep... these are the songs that get them not the 50s!

Elvizz what are you talking about? This very website and the fact that a new Elvis cd is coming out which is a follow up to a multi million sellar proves your comments wrong. These things have been said about Elvis from the beginning of his career. The plain simple fact is that Elvis' music will always be popular because it conveys basic human feeling regardless of fads and trends. You speak of the general public as some different species yet we are that same public and we are still listening to him.

It is difficult to imagine that tracks/songs of an artist who last recorded 27 years ago, would appeal to the present public. Even tracks recorded in 1980's and 1990's seem prety outdated in the present context of rap and techno music. Hence we will have pin our hopes on rubberneckin remix. It is the track which will appeal to the general public at large. But the issue is, would the public buy the album for a single remix. I just hope the new sound quality/remastering of other tracks would be as good as the tracks in Elvis No one album. I just hope BMG would continue remixing Elvis"s tracks so that the momentum would continue. Future remixes may or may not hit the No.1 spot. But what matters is Elvis would be popular among the present market with such releases.

I'm not disputing that this track list doesn't contain great songs but it really does show a lack of imagination from BMG. Too many songs have appeared on too many other compilations, there is no need to include songs like American Trilogy, Blue Suede Shoes, Always on my Mind, If I Can Dream yet again. It gives the public the same old impression that Elvis only recorded the same old songs etc. Classics and something a bit more different like You Don't Know Me, It Hurts Me, Something Blue etc would in my opinion be a better choice. That said, this is a subject where opinions will vary from one extreme to another. If it sells half of Elvis 30 One's then that will be a great performance.

That's a good idea moody blue, I like your thinking. Actually perhaps ElvisNews could start a new discussion thread along those lines? It's always fun to see what tracks emerge as favourites. Off the top of my head, I would go with (in no particular order): One sided love affair, Loving arms, Like a baby, You'll think of me, Follow that dream.
Oh there are so many more. I've always loved each of those though and they each create a different mood for the listener.

Pretty good tracklisting ! The only really weak track is 'Rock-A-Hula Baby'. This stalled at No.23 in the US.
In the UK they made the single a double A-side with "Can't Help Falling In Love", so when "Can't Help.." reached No.1, it was listed in the chart along with the inferior 'Rock-A-Hula Baby', which didn't merit the top spot at all !

just a thought on a follow up to second to none,tony p is spot on with slipping lesser known material for a wider audience.only one problem -everybody has different favorites.the album that got me hooked on the king was elvis in demand,that record was chosen by the fans ,and in my opinion every track is a classic.So the powers of BMG should do a poll,maybe on a elvis website for fans personal favorites and from that list,they should have a good idea of which are the stronger recordings.not for one minute am i saying use all the choices of the fans,but,if they only pick a few from the poll then the album should become a classic.In that conext i suggest every fan picks five tracks.i'll start the ball rolling with my choices;i just can't help believin,summer kisses,long lonely highway,dontcha think it's time and-this may surprise you-i'm counting on you.the good thing is-i could have chosen hundreds of more.

It's generally a great tracklist. The 'weakest link' in my opinion is I want you, I need you, I love you - but as someone said, we all have our personal preferences. Memories is a great song and more rare on CD than many of the choices. I would predict that having got many people who were previously non-fans on board with these two high profile compilations, the next big compilation - probably a similar time next year - will slip in some of the lesser known great performances. Isn't that how most of us properly discovered the versatility of Elvis? We heard the biggest hits and then delved deeper and found more unexpected gems!

I have to agree with Joliverma: When all is said and done, this is a fine collection of great Elvis songs and/or performances. And for all our collective personal faves that seem to be missing-in-action, as they say in baseball, there's always next year. One thing's for sure -- money talks louder than words. And if the new set comes even close to the numbers achieved by "30 #1 Hits," BMG is sure to keep this going far beyond "2nd to None." So, I plan to spend the next 12 months or so enjoying the heck out of the new masters/mixes on "2nd," even as I patiently await the debates that will surely accompany 2004's inevitible "Three to Get Ready."

I've already made my thoughts clear about the tracklisting (genrally very good) so I won't say anything more here. What I would like to know though is that several of these tracks are listed as having been No 1's. Why weren't they on the No 1's collection? Surely this means that the No 1's collection was not complete.
As for who will buy it - Colin B you are right. My 15yr old niece bought the No 1's collection on the back of hearing ALLC and loved it (along with many of her friends) - she's since cleared me out of my Elvis collection. Hopefully Rubberneckin' will prove to be a similar catalyst.

To Jim Semple - Who is this album for ? The people who bought 'Elvis - 30 # 1 Hits' ! All 9 million of them.
Colin B (profilecontact) wrote on Sep 9, 2003report abuse
To Moody Blue: Yeah ! And then again in DVD-A !!
Jim Semple (profilecontact) wrote on Sep 9, 2003report abuse
Who is this release designed for ?. I can only see hardcore Elvis fans (like all us lot who comment in Elvis News) buying it. ALLC and Rubberneckin are hugely popular with the younger generation because its cool, trendy music but I can't see many 12 - 16 years olds buying this release. Hopefully I'm wrong.

although most elvis fans have the majority of these tracks time and again,the selling point for me as with last years number one hits is the remastering which is superb.cannot wait to put 2nd to none in my cd sour point is will we have to buy the entire elvis cataloge again if they remaster all the old tracks? start saving

(It's almost the same opinion that I gave in the "probably" track list, but I want to make sure it could be read by some of you). "That's all right", "Memories" and "Always on my mind" The first and the last are absolute classics of the Presley songbook, and the second is one of his sweetest (an adult) songs. "Memories" is underrated, so listen it one more time and I'm sure you will agree with me. "I forgot to remember" is underrated too and here we have the answer (known already) why is chosen before "Mistery train": it was his first #1. Each fan has his own favourites, of course I do, but I think that BMG has done a very very good work with this selection. Anyway, all of us we'll buy the CD (hope with the Canadian and UK cover), so there's one thing we gotta do: enjoy it till our CD players break.
