    ELVIS PRESLEY-"WALK A MILE IN MY SHOES" PROVIDES A REASONABLE PERSPECTIVE INTO SOME OF THE BEST RECORDINGS OVER THE LAST SEVEN YEARS OF THIS EXTRAORDINARY ARTIST'S CAREER. THIS BOXED SET WAS THE THIRD IN A SERIES OF A CONCEPT TO OFFER AN "ESSENTIAL" GLIMPSE INTO EACH DECADE OF ELVIS' CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE MUSIC WORLD AND TO HIS WORLDWIDE ADMIRERS. THIS CONCEPT CAPTURED HIS EARLY AND RAW ROCKABILLY BEGINNINGS AT "SUN STUDIOS" IN 1953 #WHERE HE IS HEARD HAVING ACTUALLY STARTED WITH A RARE ARCHIVAL FIND OF AN AMATUERLY RECORDED SONG FOR HIS BELOVED MOMMA "GLADYS"#, THRU HIS FIRST TASTE OF FAME AND FORTUNE, ALONG WITH A LIGHT SMATTERING OF TELEVISION APPEARANCES #SUCH AS THE "ED SULLIVAN SHOW" SHOT FROM-THE-WAIST-UP CONTROVERSY AND OTHER TV SHOWS THAT INTRODUCED AN UNPOLISHED ELVIS TO A SOMEWHAT WORLDWIDE AUDIENCE, SAMPLES OF INITIAL MOVIE SOUNDTRACKS, AND UP UNTIL HIS DRAFT INTO THE U.S. ARMY, WHEN HIS CAREER'S STATUS AND LIFE'S EVENTS WOULD DRAMATICALLY CHANGE. THE SECOND ROUND OF THIS SERIES EXPLORES A CHANGED AND MORE POLISHED ELVIS PRESLEY UPON HIS RETURN FROM THE ARMY AND WELCOME BACK ON THE "FRANK SINATRA SHOW", VERY SUCCESSFUL RE-INTRODUCTION BY WAY OF MORE HIT RECORDINGS, HALTING LIVE PERFORMANCES FOR NEARLY A DECADE A MOVIE CONTRACTS, AND CONTAINS LITTLE OF MOVIE SOUNDTRACKS BUT MOST OF HIS HIT RECORDINGS FROM 1960 THRU 1969, AND HIS WIDELY ACCLAIMED 1968 "COMEBACK" TV SPECIAL, UP UNTIL HIS IMMENSELY SUCCESSFUL RETURN TO LIVE PERFORMANCES. WHILE EACH OF THE BOXED COLLECTION'S CONTENTS ARE OF ALMOST HALF A DOZEN CD'S WITH APPROXIMATELY THIRTY TRACKS, WHAT ALL SHARE IN COMMON IS THAT THEIR PRIMARY FOCUS IS ON THE POPULAR AND HIT SONGS OF THAT SPECIFIC TIME-FRAME. ALSO, EACH IN THE SERIES INCLUDES NICELY DETAILED BOOKLETS WITH PHOTOS TO PROVIDE A GOOD PERSPECTIVE OF EACH PHASE OF HIS CAREER, AND A COLLECTIBLE COLLAGE OF ALBUM COVERS RELEVANT TO THE RESPECTIVE DECADES, OFFERED ON A POSTAGE-STAMP STYLED FORMAT. EACH DISC FEATURES PHOTO ART OF ELVIS. FURTHER, THERE IS ALSO AN INTERESTING BIT OF RARE AND/OR ALTERNATE TRACK RECORDING MATERIAL INCLUDED. AS FOR THIS PART OF THE "ESSENTIAL" SERIES, TITLED "WALK A MILE IN MY SHOES", THE TITLE IS DERIVED FROM AN OLD SAYING, AND REFERS SYMBOLICALLY TO PEOPLE NOT JUDGING ONE ANOTHER BUT INSTEAD TO BE COMPASSIONATE AND TRY TO EMPATHIZE. THE PHRASE ITSELF HAD BEEN ONE WHICH ELVIS LIKED AND WOULD USE FREQUENTLY WHEN AMONG HIS CLOSEST "FRIENDS". "WALK A MILE IN MY SHOES" IS THE TITLE OF A SONG THAT ELVIS HAD CHOSEN TO PERFORM AND RECORD SOLELY ON STAGE, AND A FEBRUARY 1970 LIVE RECORDED VERSION IS FEATURED ON DISC #5, AND THIS SAME DISC IS COMPRISED NEARLY ENTIRELY OF RECORDINGS OF ELVIS IN CONCERT, ALONG WITH A FEW REHEARSALS. THE TRACK JUST PRIOR TO THIS SONG IS AN EXERPT OF ELVIS ON STAGE LATER THAT SAME YEAR RECITING SOME OF THE WORDS OF A POEM ENTITLED "MEN WITH BROKEN HEARTS", ORIGINALLY A VERSE FROM ONE OF THE LESSER KNOWN SONGS WRITTEN BY COUNTRY MUSIC LEGEND "HANK WILLIAMS". ORIGINALLY, PRICING ON EACH BOXED SET HAD BEEN SET AT BETWEEN $70 AND $100. THIS SELECTION OF SONG RECORDINGS FROM THE LAST SEVEN YEARS OF THE LIFE AND CAREER OF A UNIQUELY GIFTED ARTIST, MOSTLY PROVING THE FACT THAT ELVIS HAD BEEN CHANGING BOTH PHYSICALLY AND VOCALLY; THOUGH HIS VOCAL ABILITIES HAD BEEN IMPROVING IN MANY RESPECTS. HIS MUSICAL TALENTS AND PASSIONATE EFFORTS TO GIVE AND TO PLEASE BEYOND HIS OR ANYONE'S HUMAN CAPACITY ARE EVIDENT IN EACH AND EVERY SONG HE HAD PERFORMED, BOTH IN CONCERT AND IN STUDIO. I DO, INDEED, HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS AND ALL PARTS OF THE "ESSENTIAL" SERIES. CERTAINLY, ANYONE INTERESTED IN THE HISTORY OF MUSIC AND/OR IN ELVIS PRESLEY SHOULD WANT TO OWN AT LEAST ONE OF THESE THREE BOXED SETS, AND TO HEAR AND REVIEW ALL. UNDOUBTEDLY, THE ELVIS 1950'S, 60'S, & 70'S "ESSENTIAL" SERIES IS AN ABSOLUTE MUST HAVE FOR A REAL ELVIS FAN. ELVIS ARON PRESLEY.....MAY HIS MEMORY FOREVER SHINE BRIGHTLY!!!

    Elvis Presley seemed to be discounted by too many people after his 50's and 60's work, but I believe some of his most genius and mature work is in the 70's. This box set is absolutely worth getting!
