Synopsis

Amazon.com
It's 24 tracks, and it's on one of those terrific-sounding gold discs, get it? Actually, the tracks--spanning 1956 through 1969--are pretty obvious, albeit random. Completists and major fans will simply want the various box sets. And when you consider that most of these hits sounded awesome blaring from a transistor radio ... well, if you really need to go gold, you might consider Elvis Is Back, his most fully realized (and stereo) album, instead. Besides, when it comes to Elvis, 24 tracks just ain't enough. --Bill Holdship

STUNNING SONICS !
02/21/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"An excellent comp. whose main selling point is the stunning remastering job by engineer Steve Hoffman.The improvement in the sonics is so great(minimal tape hiss,natural stereo soundstage)that all I can say is "Why couldn't BMG get their stuff to sound like this" ?"
Great remastered sound and fabulous song selection.

"Bill Holdship misses the point - most Elvis CDs sound like crap and DCC took great pains to remaster these tracks from the ORIGINAL MASTERS. Great songs, great sound. Come to think of it, skip the CD (which sounds really good) and pick up the thick vinyl version (which sounds great)."
Five stars for elivis 24 karat hits

"Steve Hoffman does it again. You can experience Elvis and the Jordanaires as the studio engineers heard them. The orginal releases come nowhere near the remastering job done by DCC. This CD is worth the price alone to hear track 18 Good Luck charm and the background vocals by the Jordinaires. There was only 1 Elvis and you can really experience how good he really was with this CD. Elvis come into your listening room to perform his 24 greatest hits for you. A bargan at the price."
