Although this release is true to the 29 minutes of music tracks from the original album, at first glance you may also conclude that as the one disappointment with this CD (and most of the rest of the Japanese mini-LP Elvis releases in this series). There are no bonus tracks. Although included on the US versions of Elvis Presley released since 1999, The following bonus tracks are NOT ON THIS CD:
1. Heartbreak Hotel
2. I Was the One
3. Lawdy, Miss Clawdy
4. Shake, Rattle And Roll
5. My Baby Left Me
6. I Want You, I Need You, I Love You
Nevertheless, do not despair especially if you are a manic collector because all the non-included, bonus cuts are found on other CDs from this Paper Sleeve Collection series (For LP Fans Only, Elvis’ Golden Records).
Further, although all the songs Elvis Presley does contain are also available on lots of other discs, if you must have the record that started the revolution, this is it.
