I'd sell The Complete Masters before I'd sell Boy From Tupelo!

It is a beautiful set! I treasure mine very much (not only because it's a treasure to Elvis' fans but also because it was an important gift from a great friend).

I can see how the lack of index, etc may be an issue for scholars but it's one of the best Elvis' items I ever saw and it's clear that it was made with love. A true example for how retail material should be (and I do think that it should be available for all to read, as it's an important project).

Wow. I actually bought a second copy when it first came out. Still have it unopened and in the shipping box.

It is a wonderful set. Along with The Complete Masters they are truly the finest Elvis releases of all time and I feel very privileged to own both.

To mark the 60th anniversary of "Thats All Right" I have started reading the whole book all over again and am really enjoying it. There's just some wonderful photographs and anecdotes in the book that literally put a smile to my face.

Thank you Ernst and co. We forget how lucky us fans are sometimes!

It's a beautiful set. It had been a while since I listened to the cd's but on last weeked I listened to the 1st cd again and remembered what an absolutely fantastic work they did on the remastering. On most tracks the sound is superb. Well done FTD-team.
