Favorites (Pretty Much In Order):
Elvis Is Back
Elvis At Sun
Essential Elvis Vol 2 (Stereo 57)
Essential Elvis Vol 3 (Hits Like Never Before)
How Great Thou Art
His Hand In Mine
Blue Hawaii
Fun In Acapulco
C'mon Everybody
I Got Lucky
Elvis' Christmas Album (1970 Version)
Elvis Today
Moody Blue

Non-Favorites:
Frankie and Johnny (Neither the movie nor the album)
Double Trouble

Most of Elvis' other albums have 3-4 songs that I like. Tops in the "pick and choose" list would be "Elvis' Golden Records", "Something For Everybody", "Pot Luck", "For the Asking(The Lost Album)", just about all of the soundtracks, and most of the post-1969 studio albums.

Seriously! I like hearing the whole thing, all the highs and lows, boom! Level playing field.
But there are many, many Elvis discs I love listening to from start to finish.

Very many but the sound quality combined with great music, Elvis 75 Good Rockin' Tonight is my current favorite set.

Two of my favorite single cd collections that get played a lot even though they are before the 2007 remastering are Elvis 56 and Elvis R&B. They are great rockers.

"Elvis Is Back!". The re-release which included the 6 singles. Now that is about as perfect a set of album/single sessions you will ever get. Elvis never sang better in his life.

First one that comes to mind is Nashville Marathon.
Can't think of any that I hate. That's a pretty strong word when it comes to Elvis.

This Year's Model (1978) never gets old.

Goodbye Cruel World (1984) is a real stinker.

FROM ELVIS PRESLEY BOULEVARD

I've been buying FTD's lately. The two-disc "That's The Way It Is" is awesome--I'd never bought any of the previous editions, as I had the 70's box set. My other favorite soundtrack (at least today) is "Viva Las Vegas".

"Hate" is a strong word...probably disc four of the "Elvis Aron Presley" set--the 1975 live stuff. "If Every Day Was Like Christmas" is a CD I seldom spin, even during the holidays. I also have that "Rubberneckin'" remix CD gathering dust somewhere.

TTWII is a no-brainer. I just can't listen to one song alone, especially if I suddenly listen to "I Just Can't Help Believin'". Then I just play the rest of the album naturally.

I also enjoy G.I. Blues, Kissin' Cousins (yup), The Fool album (FTD with the singles and Aloha songs), Golden Records vol. 4, Elvis Is Back (FTD, which includes the singles), Pot Luck (same), Promised Land and the first 2 volumes of that old brazilian compilation series, "Good Rockin' Tonight". Weird selection, but I just love to listen to these from start to finish.
The Lost Album is also nice.

I'm not sure which ones I don't like to listen to in their entirety... I'm just kinda indifferent to the rest if I listen one, two, three songs or the entire material.

Making it a personal top 5, and sticking for this occasion to Memphis. (Did i already mention that i would love to see a well compiled and put together all Memphis box set as it seems he was to really connect to his music there?)
- Elvis at Sun
- The Memphis Sessions
- The JRS
- FEIM Legacy
- As recorded live at the Midsouth (both edits i can live with)

This is not personal best of top 5 list, but these are albums i really enjoy from beginning to end as was the intended point of the OP.

hate... a talking album only

selling out and embarrassing the greatest artist by a money grabber manager. no respect for that series at all.
