... for not blogging by telling you that you can buy this slice of heaven-- Elvis Presley, Walk a Mile in My Shoes: The Essential 70s Masters -- for $16.99 (sixteen dollars ninety nine cents AUD) from iTunes. Five discs. 120 (one hundred and twenty) songs.
For whatever reason they have it all bundled as one album. Ta, Steve. Seen it in the hard copy shops for $90 and its USD71 on Amazon. Of course you don't get the Dave Marsh liner notes and whatnot but, c'mon, seventeen bucks!! The music is sublime.
The package concentrates on a core of 120 songs--the A- and B-sides of every single Presley recorded in the '70s, 46 other studio tracks (including 13 previously unreleased performances), and 27 live tracks (including another 13 unreleased tracks)--that feature a still-magnificent singer collaborating with one of the funkiest bands of its time.
The Flop Eared Mule verdict: fracking grouse to the power of infinity.
