I love it all, but have a very soft spot in my heart for 1973-1977.

Yes, 1954 to 1977, but being a teenager in the 70's, I'm like Doc. I first became a fan at the tender age of 13 in 1975 when I saw TTWII on TV in May.

As for photos, I have thousands, mostly from the 70's 8)

I love all of his early work, 54 through 60, but always have a soft spot for 68 through 71 studio work.

Hey Paul -- you saw TTWII in June, 1975. I know, I watched half of it and then walked across the street to the see the real thing at the Hofheinz Pavilion in Houston on June 5. (Unless they showed it a month early in Canada -- but I don't think so.)

Such a night!

1954-60 and 1968-72 are my two favorite eras. They aren't perfect but there is litttle I really dislike

From 1961-67 and 1973-77 he cut some great stuff but you have to sift through some mediorce material. I do enjoy the 1963, 1964, 1966, and 1967 non soundtrack sessions a lot. I also like most of the sessions from 1973-76. I think in both era's it was his main activities driving it down. In other words in the sixties it was the movies, in the mid seventies it was the live shows. Of course there were good movies and live shows during these "off" era's but again you have to sift through it.

I enjoy it all. Except the awful remixes (Viva Elvis especially). Shame on you Sirius Elvis Radio, shame on you.

You are forgetting The Final Curtain! I've been waiting since Oct 3 1977 for the definitive home-release of that baby!

'60-'63. I like 'em all, of course, and I go through phases (although I've never had a '63-'65 phase!) I've always loved "I Met Her Today" from the time I bought my "Elvis For Everyone" cassette in 1983!

Oh, and don't forget "classic Elvis," AKA the 1977 CBS-TV Special.

As with everyone else, I love it all; however I have a strong connection with the 74-77 era which was when I became a fan.

I became a fan in 1976, but essentially was coming to Elvis via rockabilly. As a 12 year old I used to hang out at the Palings in Parramatta where they had imported quite a lot of the Charly Sun releases. I remember getting the Sun Sessions there, a few Charly 10 inch releases, Carl Perkins Dance Album, a Johnny Burnette Japanese set and Shakin' Stevens doing Somebody Touched Me. It took me weeks to save for each new one and I'd go in and check that no one had bought them. The guys eventually saw what I was doing and put them all away behind the counter for me, telling me: "No ones going to buy them, so relax." They had no idea who in the shop had ordered all this stuff. At that time in Sydney's Western Suburbs it was all hard pub rock, like Cold Chisel.

So Elvis 1954-58 is my preferred. BUt I do love 1969 too. Elvis should have gone down the Deep Soul/Country Soul route more. He was master of that type of singing

I can honestly write that I like it all.

Obviously I recognise that some periods are "better" than others but I'm quite happy seguing from "Mystery Train" into "Sand Castles".

I tend to go through periods when I want to investgate certain eras or projects, looking for overlooked gems or just celebrating some of the best popular music ever made.
