The Other Sides: Worldwide Gold Award Hits, Vol. 2

by: Elvis Presley

The Other Sides: Worldwide Gold Award Hits, Vol. 2 started life at the outset of the '70s as a four-LP set, and the companion to Vol. 1, the latter containing the single A-sides while this was devoted primarily to the B-sides (some of which charted in their own right). At the time, both boxes -- and they were, indeed, classically styled box sets -- were revelations of different sorts. The first set, of course, delineated the hits from the first 14 years of his career, while this volume filled out the account of Presley's range as a singer, and the richness that his voice brought to rock & roll, even in the years when he moved toward a more pop-oriented sound. Though there are big hits like "(Marie's the Name) His Latest Flame," "Love Me," "One Night," and "Mean Woman Blues," much of the set is devoted to lesser-known songs like "Wild in the Country" and "My Baby Left Me." ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine & Bruce Eder
