What is the one must have Elvis CD boxset?

The only Elvis box set worth owning is the "Two And 1/2 Years" set from Rykodisc.

Oh, wait... wrong Elvis...

If he's a big Elvis fan and wants the studio stuff, rather than getting the 30 disc set, I'd get these:

The King of Rock 'N' Roll: The Complete 50s Masters


From Nashville To Memphis: The Essential 60's Masters I


Walk a Mile in My Shoes: The Essential 70's Masters

Also, the 5 discs sets are still available in Columbia House with the original longboxes (instead of the smaller box sets with little books). I just ordered 2 of them and got 10 double sets free (Sale is Buy 1 Get 3 Free, but with box sets they give you a few more free) I got everything today in great shape. This might be the way to go if you're friend is a member!


Order 1:
Elvis Presley ~ Amazing Grace: His Greatest Sacred Songs 138735 Free
The Eagles ~ The Very Best Of 835298 Free
The Eagles ~ The Very Best Of 835298 Free
Johnny Cash ~ The Essential Johnny Cash 347666 Free
Neil Sedaka ~ Sings the Hits 337238 Free
Elvis Presley ~ From Nashville To...60's Masters I [Box] 138677 $39.99

Subtotal $39.99

Order 2:
The Eagles ~ The Very Best Of 835298 Free
The Eagles ~ The Very Best Of 835298 Free
Jim Reeves ~ Anthology 827865 Free
Elvis Presley ~ The King Of Rock: The Complete 50's Masters [Box] 138685 $39.99

$128.78 for 2 5 disc sets and 10 double sets isn't bad.
