  • Whatever one thinks of the title--Elvis Presley was indeed one of the artists who had an undeniable impact on the popular music of the 20th century--this 3-CD collection offers enough proof to support the claim. It's all here: his groundbreaking rockabilly sessions that influenced the Beatles, Creedence Clearwater Revival, and hundreds of others; all the hits from the '50s ("Jailhouse Rock," where the swagger and insolence in Elvis' voice still packs a wallop), to those from the '60s ("Stuck on You") and the '70s (a burning version of Chuck Berry's "Promised Land").
  • Pop ballads, blues, country, soul/R&B, rockers--virtually every song here is a gem. "I'll Hold You in My Heart," Bob Dylan's "Tomorrow Is a Long Time," and the wailing Holiday-blues "Santa Claus Is Back in Town" feature Elvis bearing his heart and soul, singing magnificently with barely restrained passion, in a style descended from the finest blues and R&B singers. This package also features well-written, detailed liner notes, along with quotes from fellow icons that serve as testimonials to Elvis' impact (the quoted include Richard Nixon, James Brown, John Lennon and Janis Joplin). If you must own only one Elvis Presley album, ARTIST OF THE CENTURY is the one.

Professional Reviews
Q (12/99, p.166) - 5 stars out of 5 - "...this is true greatness in the Churchillian sense: swaggering, daring, proud yet humble, beaten but never truly down, magnificent when victorious and always unforgettable."
