After looking at some of the other reviews I have to wonder if they even bothered to read the booklet that comes with this set. The first page contains an entire paragraph on the evolution of this compilation, how it became to be labelled "Volume 2" and the addition/deletion process related to the selections.
The remainder of the 5-page booklet (counting the inside cover) contains photographs showing the receipt and sorting of Elvis' discarded clothing, portions of which accompanied each issue of the original vinyl four-record set in 1971, and a complete listing of Elvis' Recording Industry Association of America certified multi-platinum, platinum, and gold award records. Two full pages also show the evolution of the original box cover for the vinyl set and a reproduction of the hand-written page showing a list of the additions and deletions.
Historical references aside, the music contained herein offer up many of the flipsides of his hit singles, most of which charted on their own. In fact, from 1956 to the release of (You're The) Devil in Disguise in 1963, both sides of his single releases always made the pop charts, a record unmatched in the history of music (not even The Beatles could match that). The B-side to that 1963 single which ended the string of two-sided hits was Please Don't Drag That String Around (track 12 on Disc 2).
In selecting One Night, His Latest Flame, and Ask me for "the other sides" collection, I am assuming that each started out as the intended B-side.

Brought me back 40 years to a more innocent time July 25 1998
By Kandee1052@aol.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
These are the songs on the "flip" sides of our 45's and on the extended play 45's with four songs on them...an economical way for teeners to attain an extensive record library of our favorite singers in my day! Though Elvis'voice expanded and became more versatile with training and age, there is something so remarkable and innocent about his voice in the beginning.....no fancy mixers or backgrounds...just simple old Negro jazz and country songs. I loved his voice then and I love it now. I never thought I'd ever hear these songs again except in my head! My personal favorite? .."Rip It Up"..I still sing it every Saturday night! Travel back in time to our innocence with this recording.

Love Him Or Hate Him, His Success Was Undeniable Aug. 27 2007

In selecting One Night, His Latest Flame, and Ask me for "the other sides" collection, I am assuming that each started out as the intended B-side. If that is the case, it's interesting to note that each scored higher than the original A-sides: One Night reached # 4 in late 1958 while the reverse, I Got Stung, made it to # 8; His Latest Flame - also shown as [Marie's The Name] His Latest Flame - topped out at # 4 in September 1961 while the flip, Little Sister, settled for a # 5; and Ask Me peaked at # 12 in late 1964 while Ain't That Loving You Baby (actually recorded in 1958) reached # 16.

A set worth having in your collection.
Try Volume 1 May 10 2003
By Shawn Viland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
In his review of this collection Stephen Verhaeren noted the absence of such hits as Heartbreak Hotel, Hound Dog, Don't Be Cruel, and Jailhouse Rock. Perhaps he failed to notice the "Vol. 2" in the title, since all of those hits reside of Vol. 1.
30 years ago I had the Worldwide GHold Award Hits collections on vinyl and it was one huge stack of records. It was the state of the art anthology of its day. Now in this age of CD box sets we take such collections for granted and expect more and more. But in 1971 there was nothing like this. In fact, it remained the de facto "one-stop" collection of Elvis hits until it went out of print a few years ago. Certainly, one CD, like the "30 #1's" collection can do Elvis' great career justice.

Im a huge Elvis fan and always wanted this since I was little. I finally got it and it was incredible! The bonus letters and stuff was also a plus. This is definitely a must have.
LP masters Dec 24 2012
By R. Kinkade - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The original LP used 45 mono masters. I do not mind the stereo masters being used, but on selections such as "Doncha Think It's Time" (45 and LP version is a different master using different spliced takes) "Lover Doll" (45 EP master did not have the Jordanaires) "Dixieland Rock" (45 EP master had the first beats of the intro missing) and You'll Think of Me" (the backing vocals were mixed differently on the single master) the 45 single version should have been used.
