Oh yes! I totally forgot about that one. I used to have it too. A very good compilation indeed.

The first compilation i ever had was Burning Love. I loved it at the time. But the one i really loved was this one:

I have this comp. I found it shortly after he died. But my fave comp is "Worldwide Gold Award Hits, Vol 1."

Not a compilation fan at all. Probably because I find it uncomfortable listening when tracks cover different eras and the voice and instrumentation is so vastly different in style from track to track.

But I always liked this one:

This CD was my first introduction to Elvis. I really like the flow of the songs and I love the orchestrated version of always on my mind.
