One disc better endowed and not to be confused with the box set confined to the top 20 hits, Good Rockin' Tonight is a four-disc chronological collection of Presley moments expected and surprising.

The Sun Sessions are well represented, as are Elvis the movie star, Elvis the gospel singer, Elvis the country crooner and Elvis the Vegas cabaret act. All can be both ridiculous and glorious. What do you mean January is no time to be buying box sets? Elvis would have been 75 on Friday. Think of it as a birthday present to the King.
