Not even one gospel song? Don't forget the Grammys won by ELVIS were for his gospel songs. WE CAL ON HIM is my favourite.

the Dutch Collection has a nice combination between the big hits (for the "Elvis-is-ok-and- its-nice-to-have-a-cd-from-him-people") and lesser known songs. Although who can check if this is the real choise of the dutch fans; maybe there was a plan to have on forehand at least 15 or 20 big hits on it, to be sure that the Elvis-is-ok-and-...-fans will buy this album too? Anyway I will buy it, nice to have in the collection. Two minor things: Where are the songs from 1974-1977? Only My way (but they maybe take the Aloha-version) and How Great Thou Art (1974) That's all? Another minor thing for me is the sequence; it jumps from the 50's to the 70's back to the 50's and late 60's. The risk is, because of the difference in voice, musicstyle and recording technique, that it's not really a whole; so for me I would say, start with Thats allright and end with My way (if its the 1977 version otherwise How great thou Art (1974)) Oh yes and this: My favourite "I've lost you" didnt make it. GRrrr...
