The Best Box Sets of 2022

Rolling Stone listed the "Best Box-sets of 2022", Elvis Presley's 'On Tour' set was listed at #7. The magazine commented: "This year's best crop of archival sets ranged from deep dives into classic albums by David Bowie, Guns N’ Roses, and the Beatles, a box that enhances the legacy of New York punk’s greatest pop band, and several sterling sets by heroes of live Rock and Roll". 

An on the Elvis set they noted "So much love has been showered upon Elvis Presley’s 1973 'Aloha From Hawaii' special that it’s easy to overlook what led up to the historic concert. The Elvis on Tour six-CD box set zeroes in on Presley’s 1972 U.S. run, assembling four full concerts from the tour. While much of the setlist leans on Presley’s usual Seventies suspects ('See See Rider', ' 'You Gave Me a Mountain', Tony Joe White’s 'Polk Salad Annie'), it’s fun to hear Elvis change his inflection here and there, probably to keep himself from getting bored. 

It’s the two discs of rehearsals, though, that pack the most surprises: Presley teasing his musicians in 'Can’t Help Falling In Love', vamping through Marty Robbin’s 'El Paso',” and delivering spine-tingling renditions of the gospel songs he so adored."
