75. If you're talking about 'One," or whatever it's called
(the one that compiled most of his #1 hits), that's a pretty decent overview of the best-sellers. Some of his best stuff, though, in my opinion, is on more obscure releases, and you might like some of his material from the late '60s that's on compilations like "Tomorrow Is A Long Time" and the Memphis sessions of 1969 that have been released in several forms. Elvis' catalog has been repackaged and recompiled so many times that you can have your pick...
