  • The posthumous scouring of the vaults since Elvis Presley's death has produced results varying from the sublime to the execrable. This four-disc boxed set is one of the former. Containing outtakes from every stage of Presley's career both studio-recorded and live, TODAY, TOMORROW & FOREVER is an indispensable background document to the story of a seminal 20th century figure. It's fascinating to hear him in the '50s singing the kind of schlocky ballads he was soon to be instrumental in demolishing and that he would turn to again in the Las Vegas-oriented '70s. There's studio chat (notably between Elvis and Jerry Lee Lewis), jamming, and lots of false starts, all of which serve to put a human face on this rock & roll legend.
  • A beautiful version of "Love Letters" ushers in a stirring "If the Lord Wasn't Walking By My Side." It's arguably '60s tunes like these that form the most interesting segment of this compilation; the sound is better, and Elvis's performances are obviously more confident. What seldom varies here is the singer's commitment to his music, made all the more poignant when one considers his ultimate descent into self-parody at the end of his career.
