    If you were in charge of BMG and was allowed to release one Elvis CD

    If you were in charge of BMG and was allowed to release one Elvis CD, what would it be?

    I believe BMG is making the same mistake for decades (as RCA did decades before that): assuming that what was once picked as a single (and became a hit), should be now included on each and every compilation. When you look at the Elvisfans who became fans after his death, you see that not (for example) Blue Suede Shoes is their alltime hit, but (for example) Promised Land.

    It should be a one-disc release. What's your idea?

    oh geez! tough question Albert! I am a fan of his late 60's/early 70's hits.....although I do like his 50's stuff of course because that is what made him Elvis. I know what you mean about them putting same songs on every cd - I don't know what I'd do honestly. Interesting to see the answers - I'm sure Jak and Getlo have some great ideas and I'm anxiously awaiting their answers!

    I think "Wearin that Looked on Look" is a great overlooked Elvis song which had hit potential IMO It has a true raw feeling & power in it. Also in the same vein would be "Only the Strong Survie" Great great songs.

    Well, if I had a chance to do a cd of Elvis songs, it'd be a remix cd.

    That's what the kids want.

    At least my age group do.

    There are a lot of underrated songs I'd like to see on one CD:

    Woman Without Love
    Shake A Hand
    Only The Strong Survive
    Long Black Limousine
    Raised on Rock
    Wearin' That Loved On Look
    Hey Jude
    Clean Up Your Own Backyard
    Down In The Alley
    Bringin' It Back
    The Fair's Moving On
    I, John
    It's A Matter of Time
    I'll Be There
    Love Coming Down
    Please Don't Stop Loving Me
    Any Day Now
    Rags To Riches
    Never Ending
    This Is Our Dance
    What Now, What Next, Where To
    When I'm Over You
    When It Rains It Really Pours
    Wolf Call
    Your Love's Been A Long Time Comin'

    I'd need TWO CDs because there are a few more I can't think of.right now

    I can't get over what beautiful work you do Tom. Really love the all but the one that really catches my eye the most is on the second batch the cover of Elvis That's The Way It Is, Untouched Concerts wearing the Red Ladder suit is superb!!!

    I think we are over due for a true Blues CD. Let the fans vote to pick the songs. It should be promoted with the next big TV thing,,,,hopefully an anthlogy. Could be a pretty big hit. Bigger than "Elvis By the Presleys" at least.
