Entertainment Reviews:

Q - 12/95, p.168
5 Stars - Indispensable - "...On nearly all of the material here, like all truly great singers, Presley sounded believable....This is sensational music..."
NME (Magazine) - 12/23-30/95, p.23
Ranked #10 on NME's 'Compilations Of The Year' list for 1995.
NME (Magazine) - 11/11/95, p.45
7 (out of 10) - "...Amidst the multi-media haze of kitsch iconography...the fact that during this period Elvis was a dedicated recording artist tends to be ignored....Given decent material, Elvis could still stoke the elemental furnaces with as much gusto as ever..."s

Popular myth portrays Elvis Presley's career in steady decline from his heady 1956 debut to his tragic demise in 1977. Most Elvis aficionados feel, however, that Presley reached his artistic nadir in the mid-'60s, when he was cranking out one "boy-meets-girl" movie after another. Hardcore fans, in fact, argue that the '60s were Presley's most artistically fulfilling era, that his voice matured into a profound, emotional baritone at the same time that his material turned from innocent love to the adult themes of loss and regret. WALK A MILE IN MY SHOES pleads their case, presenting the best of Presley's Seventies output in one five-CD box set.
The first two discs contain all of Presley's singles of the era; discs three and four present 26 of his best non-single album tracks. Disc five is devoted to live performance, fitting given that Presley performed over 1000 concerts between 1969 and his death. The set makes a convincing argument for the artistic vitality of Presley's later period, although it requires a high tolerance for dramatic ballads and lavish production. As an added bonus, Presley is supported throughout by one of history's great backing bands, featuring guitar great James Burton.
