Rolling Stone - 8/21/97, p.1084 Stars (out of 5) - "...an amazing and revelatory journey encompassing explosive rock & roll, hard-edged country, slow-boiling R&B, sentimental pop, soul-baring spirituals, a haunting stab at folk...and a single tenderhearted Christmas entry..."
Entertainment Weekly - 7/18/97, pp.81-82"...PLATINUM is full of blues shouts, gospel meditations, rockabilly shuffles--all of which fry with a kind of fatback jubilation that Elvis never got to explore in his movie ditties..." - Rating: B
NME (Magazine) - 8/2/97, p.38"...His legend may be sullied and omnipresent, his music distorted and overly familiar and his life parodied and documented to a suffocating degree, but this compilation at least reminds you why he was the King and why his music meant so much..."

You probably think you've heard all there is to hear from The King, what with countless Elvis retrospectives, anthologies and reissues flooding the market. While PLATINUM is far from the first Elvis box, it's unique in that it's composed largely of previously unreleased material. Four discs cover every phase of Presley's career, from young Memphis hip-shaker to middle-aged Vegas hip-shaker, adding a fresh perspective to each period.
It's both an education and a kick to hear alternate versions of songs as ingrained in the public consciousness as "That's All Right," and others from Elvis' legendary Sun sessions. Obscure delights like 1969's "Power Of My Love" update one of rock & roll's most stellar legacies. Off-the-cuff recordings and live TV performances contribute further to this set, which proves that even the most zealous Elvis fan hasn't heard the whole story yet.
