Music Review: Elvis The Platinum Collection: Elvis Presley

This is a collection of 75 songs.  If this is just his platinum songs, it makes you wonder how large is Presley's repertoire.  There are many fantastic songs included.  There are three discs, 25 songs each. The first disk is devoted to classics: "Can't Help Falling in Love", "It's Now or Never", "Are You Lonesome Tonight?", "Jailhouse Rock", "Love Me Tender," "All Shook Up" and "Hound Dog" among others.  I was amazed at how many Presley songs have a Latin feel.
The next disk has mostly movie songs.  The last disk gets into his Hawaiian period.  It includes songs like "Blue Hawaii" and "Midnight Swim".  This has plenty to like.  Sheri and I listened in the car.  Sheri wanted to dance, rare for her.  However putting one of these on at home will be a great way to dance.
