I would have included all the songs that SHOULD have been on them (the singles at the time), removed "Hey Jude" from Elvis Now (what were they thinking, including this one?) and added several alternate takes on each title.
Kristian - These are really the coolest albums from the 1970ies! I totally agree! They also have the coolest cover pictures ...
I would add "Burning Love And Hits From His Movies" and "Separate Ways" to the list above. They'd really need an re-issue either ...

Actually they are amongst the weaker titles Elvis released during that decade, which is why many of the tracks from these albums were not included on the ‘70’s box, and the original titles were subsequently deleted from BMG’s mainstream catalogue.
It would also be totally pointless to re-issue “Burning Love and Hits From His Movies” or “Separate Ways”. The idea of the FTD re-issues is to make deleted masters available to the fans, and as the movie soundtracks are already being covered, it makes no sense to re-issue these titles (which were originally budget compilations) as well.

"Raised on Rock", "Good Times" and "Elvis Presley Boulevard"
would do me for the first three re-issues.
