Elvis Presley 24 Karat Hits, on Hybrid Stereo SACD!

Mastered from the original analog tapes By George Marino at Sterling Sound

An audiophile dream set; the best that Elvis has ever sounded!

Includes every one of the King's all-time greatest singles

Elvis Is Back! also available on SACD and as a 180-gram 45 RPM three LP Set from Analogue Productions

"... other compilations have filled the shelves but this is the essence. Yes, there are omissions, but who'd miss the dire 'A Little Less Conversation?' That aside — no two fans would pick the same 24 tracks — this exists for a different reason: the sound quality lets you know how much RCA valued Elvis. Produced by geniuses, remastered to perfection, this is as good as you will ever hear Elvis in the digital domain." Sound Quality: 90% — Ken Kessler, Hi-Fi News, June 2013

It's no understatement to call Evis Presley the chief catalyst of the rock 'n' roll era. Presley earned his nickname "The King" by releasing dozens of course-altering singles over the course of his influential career; during the 1950s Presley's records spent a collective 53 weeks in the No. 1 chart position. Almost everything you could want from Elvis is in one towering collection — 24 Karat Hits, now a brilliant-sounding Hybrid Stereo SACD from Analogue Productions!

Elvis' 24 greatest recordings here are painstakingly compiled and remastered from the original 1, 2 and 3-track master tapes lovingly stored in the vaults of RCA-Victor. All the hits are here from 1956's "Heartbreak Hotel" to 1969's "Suspicious Minds." This Fort Knox of music is mandatory for every music lover, let alone Presley diehards and record collectors. A long-out-of-print audiophile favorite — known for its first-rate sound quality — it gets the royal treatment here in stunning SACD quality.

Until now, Elvis fans have satiated their desires with the prized DCC double LP edition (reaching prices upwards of $350 on eBay) as well as the DCC gold disc (a rare find fetching $150 and more). Now no longer do you have to pay a premium to enjoy the magic of Presley's voice, rhythms and foundation-paving melodies. Mastered by George Marino, the King's best work has never sounded so intimate, detailed, present and alive. Images are true and tones are balanced on every cut.

Contained in this album are some of the best rock 'n' roll cuts recorded in the last 50 years. Had Elvis Presley done nothing else but record "That's Alright, Mama," his place in pop music history would be secure. Presley fused rhythm and blues with country and legitimized beat music for white audiences. On 24 Karat Hits, every memorable facet of Presley's multiple personas is represented:The hip-shaking rebel ("Jailhouse Rock"), sensitive balladeer ("Can't Help Falling in Love"), beckoning romantic ("Are You Lonesome Tonight"), teen idol ("(Let Me Be) Your Teddy Bear"), socially conscious soul man ("In the Ghetto"), and passionate loverman ("Suspicious Minds"). The two dozen songs on this golden compilation read like a history of pop music and play like it is unfolding before our very eyes. There's no substitution for the experience this set provides.

Do not miss the chance to own part of American history in unsurpassed fidelity that brings the cream of Elvis' music into your room, in stunning clarity.

This release is a gem. Buy two copies: One to treat your ears, the sealed copy to treasure as an investment. Solid audiophile gold - indeed!

Twenty-four Elvis songs, the most popular, have been recorded in the most beautiful way possible. The vestiges of time drop away as Elvis stands right before his audience and sings with all of the richness that we almost heard in bygone days.


Astounding!

I have never heard Elvis sound better. I have had this (SACD) on repeat for literally the last 7 days and am continuously amazed at the natural talent he had, the great sound of this disc. Also points out how over-produced some of his latter recordings were. One of the best ever.


Disappointing...

I was very happy to recieve this SACD and eagerly lined it up side-by-side with the old DCC to see how it compared. Unfortunately, very few tracks on this SACD top the DCC. There are dropouts, pops and clicks all over the place that have not appeared on any past releases. "Heartbreak Hotel" and "Don't Be Cruel" sound downright poor...like an old copy tape was used...the DCC is FAR better on those tracks! What happened? Did they lose the masters? I give this release two stars simply because of the half dozen or so songs that are true upgrades. The rest of it is pretty much useless, even in hi-res.


dynamite!

Its been a very long wait for some elvis on sacd! This disc is frankly spectacular and sounds better than any previous digital release for sure. It was a real joy to listen to such a beautiful clear sound. Tracks such as "love me" sounded like elvis was in the room. All the tracks revealed so many little details i have never heard before. For me "in the ghetto" was a revelation as i have always thought it sounded a bit muddy, not so here as it sounded more alive than i would have thought possible. Fingers crossed for many more elvis releases this good!
