Hitstory released in The Netherlands!
The new cd-boxset Hitstory is released in the Netherlands today. I got this cd from my wife today. The artwork is really great, nice little poster included, with all the songs and chart positions on the back, very impressive to see 91 songs listed in the top 20. I'm listing to cd-3 right now (that's the disc called: the story continues), the sound is good so far, there is no information in this package if these recordings were remastered from the original master tapes, like the other 2 discs. But so far the sound can be compared to the previous releases: 30 #1 Hits and 2nd to none. I think this package is the best i've seen on a official Elvis release, only a shame that it took 3 releases to get it, cause the first 2 discs were re-released on the little boxset: Elvis forever. But on the other side, this release we have here in the Netherlands has 30 tracks, not the 19 tracks that the US fans are getting. But i have to be honest here, if it wasnt for my wife, i would never have bought it, cause due the simple fact that i allready have the first 2 discs 2 times now, and this is the 3rd added. I really hope that BMG/SONY will release the 3rd disc as a single disc in the near future.
