|This deluxe three disc package combines two landmark collections of Elvis' indispensable smash hits with a brand new compilation of more essential Top 20 singles. This trilogy comes in a magnificent and elegant hard-bound package with iconic Elvis imagery and a collectable poster.
Disc One contains the multi-platinum Elvis 30 #1 Hits which introduced his greatest hits to a new generation while reminding many who were there for it all how special his music really is. The fastest selling album of his career, Elvis 30 #1 Hits went straight to #1 on the charts of 26 countries. The superbly re-mastered tracks impressed critics and excited fans, giving Elvis’ music a 21st century clarity.
Disc Two contains Elvis 2nd To None, a platinum-plus sequel, which provided the perfect companion. It delves deeper into the King’s hit-making legacy, offering among its 30 tracks more #1 singles, career milestones and fan favorites.
Disc Three contains The Story Continues which completes this trilogy and showcasing nineteen Top 20 singles hits from the Billboard Top 100 – another essential part of Elvis’ remarkable Hitstory.

Notes & Personnel Info
|Personnel: Elvis Presley.|
|Presenting both ELVIS: 30 #1 HITS and 2ND TO NONE, 2005's HITSTORY also features a previously unreleased third disc, entitled THE STORY CONTINUES. The CD, which bucks the trend of adding an updated remix track, includes 19 of the King's lesser hits from the late 1950s to the mid '70s, focusing mostly on early- to-mid-'60s singles. Many of these songs are oft-overlooked gems recorded as Elvis's film career was kicking into high gear, and reinforces the notion that third-tier Elvis tunes are still better than a lot of performers' finest work.|
|Highlights of THE STORY CONTINUES include the pleading "I Beg of You" ('58), as well as "Flaming Star" ('61) and "Follow That Dream" ('62), both full of the upbeat swagger that made Presley both dangerous and accessible. There's a charming live take on James Taylor's "Steamroller Blues" ('73) and, on the country-funk burner "If You Talk in Your Sleep" ('74), it's clear that with what little creative fuel Presley still had in the tank at the end, when given the right song to sing, he was like no other. Although casual listeners may be content with just owning 30 #1 HITS and 2ND TO NONE, serious fans of the King will not want to pass up the essential collection of odds and sods on HITSTORY.|
