Time-Life's mail & net order series 'The Elvis Presley Collection - The Rocker'. Typically for this series, these 2 CDs are in rough chronological order, but run concurrently instead of consecutively, so that the second one starts over back in the mid-1950s. This collection takes the listener quickly from the inspired rockabilly of tracks like 'Mystery Train' through the movie material like 'Kissin' Cousins' to concert recordings like 'See See Rider.' Each volume of The Elvis Presley Collection is baited with a previously unreleased track. In this case, it's a rehearsal version of 'Burning Love.'

Good old fashioned rockabilly and rock n' roll by the king!!

"This cd is what Elvis Presley was all about, not that garbage that he did after he got out of the army. Well, I take that back; it wasn't all garbage, but it wasn't the real thing. It was the diluted Elvis Presley. This is the REAL Elvis Presley, whaling it out at Sun Studios. The highlight of this cd, in my opinion, is "Money Honey", but they're all really good. Buy it!!!!!!!!!!"
My favorite Elvis Presley CD.

""Rocker" is my favorite Elvis Presley CD. This disc really does stand up to its title. I'm not really a huge fan of Presley's work, but I am somewhat more than just a casual fan. Although I do like a lot of his ballads, I have always been a bigger fan of his uptempo stuff. This CD is very short, but don't let that deter you from buying it. The disc is well worth the price, and what it lacks in quantity, it more than makes up for in quality. All of the songs here are from the 1950s, so they are from before Elvis's music started to go downhill. The way I see it, this is a good samplng of some of the best music that he ever recorded."
