Elvis '56 - greatest rock record ever.
Live At MSG - '70's band was HOT that night and the crowd was wild.
Elvis Country - FTD, especially disk 2.
He Touched Me - his best gospel stuff.
A Hundred Years From Now - Essential '70's stuff undubbed.
Such A Night - Essential '60's and his best voice ever.
Elvis At Sun - Groundbreaking, world changing music in it's best sound ever.
Memphis Sessions FTD - "In The Ghetto" undubbed may be the greatest recorded sound ever made in history.
Burbank '68 - Remember? This is "music that bleeds".
Tomorrow Is A Long Time - The beginnings of a comeback. Great stuff all compiled together on one disk.

so this isn't proper albums, right? this is any Elvis cd ever pressed? i'll get back atcha tomorrow.
do disc sets count as one cd, or the number of cd's contained in the set? i take it from the pic, it's 10 titles, not 10 discs.
