My stomach is hurting again
What an uninspiring list. This is nothing different from anything that they released the past decades. Still the same strategy and vision on how to run Elvis' catalogue. Where's the guts? And uhhh.... where's Ernst?
I would love to see someone trying to show the world Elvis was more than the "greatest-hits" artist that they are used to know. Pushing a compilation with lesser-known material with a good marketing campaign. Not trying to re-release the same hits, hoping for it to be bought by the same Elvisfans.
What's Elvis' biggest hits (sold in numbers)? The remix of A Little Less Conversation. Do we really have to have another outsider (like Junkie XL was) to pick a relative unknown hit and see the hit potential of it? The only reaction of BMG to this sudden, unexpected succes was to release another greatest hits album (#1's) and let this new hit boost that album. And the next step of BMG? Repeat the formula: let another DJ remix a song and put that one on another greatest hits album.
