It's a beautiful-looking package, but also repetitive in covering familiar RCA 1956 territory. The new notes by Peter Guralnick are a nice touch. I can't vouch for the sound: I passed on it when I first saw it. Completists and '50s diehards will like this one. It's quite attractive and,for a change, is an Elvis repackaging that's dead-on in being a record you can be proud of seeing in the racks.
