Highlights include "Sweet Home Chicago," "Come On In My Kitchen," "Love In Vain," "I Believe I'll Dust My Broom," and Johnson's biggest hit "Terraplane Blues," a popular song on jukeboxes throughout the South.

    Elvis Presley

    The No. 1 Hits

      Elvis Presley was rock & roll's first real star and one of the most important cultural forces in history - a hip-shaking symbol of liberation for the staid America of the 1950s. Included on this set are Elvis' greatest hits from the period 1955-62, among them all his King singles that reached number one on the U.S. pop charts between 1956 and 1962. Among other smash hits, this release includes both sides of the single "Hound Dog"/"Don't Be Cruel", "I Want You", " I Need You, I Love You", "Heartbreak Hotel", "All Shook Up", "Don't", "Are You Lonesome Tonight?", "It's Now or Never", and "Surrender". Without a doubt, these are the songs upon which the Elvis Presley legend was built.

      Billie Holiday

      The Hits

        No one has ever sung or will ever sing like the late Billie Holiday (1925 - 1959). Although her vocal range was more limited than Sarah Vaughan or Ella Fitzgerald, Billie made her interpretations so expressive that even the tritest lyrics sounded almost profound.

        This limited gatefold issue consists of her 14 greatest hits, among them her two studio versions of the poignant protest song "Strange Fruit", her unforgettable reading of "All of Me" with Lester Young on tenor saxophone, and her best recordings of her own compositions "Fine and Mellow", "God Bless The Child", "Lady Sings the Blues"(music by Herbie Nichols), and "Don't Explain.

        Ella Fitzgerald

        The Hits

          One of the few great ladies of jazz song, Ella Fitzgerald (1917-1996) infected each tune with her unique sense of swing. The songs selected here were carefully chosen from among her best works, including compositions by such names as Cole Porter, Richard Rodgers & Lorenz Hart, and Duke Ellington. Many of these tunes were taken from the celebrated song books that gained her enormous prestige. These are all studio recordings with the sole exception of her celebrated reading of Kurt Weill's "Mack the Knife" which was an absolute hit on her "Ella in Berlin" LP. Produced by Norman Granz, the sessions included the orchestras of Frank DeVol, Billy May, Marty Paich, Buddy Bregman, plus a host of star names including Louis Armstrong, Ben Webster, Stuff Smith, Barney Kessel, Oscar Peterson, Herb Ellis, Ray Brown, Louie Bellson, and Jim Hall, to name just a few.
