I believe a lot of Elvis' original albums were out in CD form in the late 80s and early 90's and then the key titles were put out again a few years ago with bonus tracks. Apparently, they didn't sell. My guess is that if they had sold well, they would still be available.
Comparing Miles Davis' and Elvis' respective catalogues is like comparing apples to oranges. When Miles Davis recorded, he ran a series of sessions with the knowledge that the material was going into the next album. I think the exceptions would have been the Quiet Nights album and the song Nothing Like You from Sorcerer. The rest of his albums all contained music recorded specifically for the albums that came out respective to the sessions. Elvis recorded songs and they were released piecemeal on albums scattered throughout his career so it is not as important for his albums to be kept together with the possible exceptions that I noted earlier. These albums are more important to the hardcore fans who already have them. Someone else pointed out that you cannot get an understanding of Elvis' career without knowing these albums. This is true but it is the perspective of a more intense fan, not a casual consumer. I like the song Buddy Hollly by Weezer so I bought the disc, but I don't necessarily want a deeper understanding of their career.

No I don't have another brother named "Darrell" and "Darryl." Nor do I have a brother "Larry." If I had a nickel for every time I've been asked that, I'd probably be a millionaire by now. BTW, I loved "Newhart."
BTW, is it really possible to break into someone's iTunes account? I never really thought about it before. Not that I would want to or anything.
As for Doc. Carpenter, your comments on him David were accurate. He thinks your comments were "out of the blue." It's quite obvious that Doc is oblivious to the fact that he is ignorant and arrogant all rolled into one avatar.

My posts are more like a punch square between the eyes. Don't you know that such a punch can be lethal. Or don't you know any better and instead keep dragging your carcass up off the mat.
Unfortunately Johnny has no shortage of lap dogs on this MB, all to keen to massage his ego.
