Hitstory

The King's chart-toppers were collected on the outstanding 30 #1 Hits in 2002, followed the next year by the dodgier 2nd to None, which showcased lesser chart entries. Now comes this box set, which includes both those CDs plus a third featuring 19 hits the first two missed.

The effect is an Elvis best-of that tells the same story three times, less effectively with each go-round. New fans should stick with the stand-alone 30 #1 Hits—or, if you simply must have a three-disc set, 1999's far superior Artist of the Century.
