iTunes Editors’ Notes

Elvis Presley recorded enough "essential" music in his lifetime to fill countless volumes. But a casual fan looking for a generous but not overwhelming set of highlights would do very well with this career summary. It includes the first record Presley made with Sun Records ("That's All Right") and two other highlights before moving on to the RCA hits from the '50s ("Heartbreak Hotel," "Hound Dog," "Love Me Tender") and eventually to the ensuing decades, where the hits kept coming and his technique and style never abandoned him. Everyone knows of his tragic death, yet it's more important to realize just how unfailingly great he was until the end. "In the Ghetto," "Suspicious Minds," "Kentucky Rain," "Burning Love," and "Always on My Mind" are the works of a creative icon who ran circles around his competition just by letting loose at the microphone. There are reasons he was known as the King of Rock 'n' Roll, and here are 40 of them.

But no one could argue with the fact that he was the musician most responsible for popularizing rock & roll on an international level. Viewed in cold sales figures, his impact was phenomenal. Dozens upon dozens of international smashes from the mid-'50s to the mid-'70s,...
