These are obviously releases based on the 50 year copyright rule for Europe. Under this rule, after 50 years the recordings become public domain and lose their copyright ptotection. These releases are motivated by greed and making a fast buck. On the other hand, it shows that Elvis recordings are in high demand and are still very popular and marketable. More "editions" and re-releases are not necessarily all bad because Elvis gets more exposure. The records are all from the Sun sessions and the first two Elvis albums from 1956 with RCA singles from that year. I agree that the first Elvis LP on RCA did not reflect Elvis' best work and is highly overrated as an album. It reflects some of Elvis' worst recordings like "Tutti Frutti". You do, however, get the two sides of the first Elvis RCA single, "Heartbreak Hotel/I Was the One", one of Elvis' greatest releases ever. Also, you get "Don't Be Cruel", "Paralyzed", a solid track that usually gets neglected, and the Sun singles. It is not a bad release but it is overhyped and deceitful. Just say it is the best of Elvis' early work, his first releases, 1954-1956. I would call it: The Birth of Rock and Roll: Elvis' 40 Greatest Hits, 1954-1956. That would be a better title. The way the title now stands implies falsely that the album contains hits from Elvis' entire career. It is great that Elvis is huge in Spain though. This is a nice collector's item as a Spanish release.

Wouldn't it be better if ElvisNews just stops focussing on these "Greatest Hits" rereleases from unofficial sources and aim there sole attention to the more interesting releases? Let Amazon or some other E-shop worry about the promo of these import "Essentials".

Re-issue! Re-package! Re-package! Re-evaluate the songs. Double-pack with a photograph. Extra Track (and a tacky badge)

'40 greatest hits without copyright' is a better title..
