AllMusic Review by

The distinguishing characteristic of the 2009 triple-disc box set Memories is that each one of its three discs spotlights a different decade in Elvis’ career. This scheme results in a nice cross section of singles from “That’s All Right” to “Moody Blue,” but this isn’t strictly reliant on hits; if anything, LP cuts and live tracks have equal weight, so this winds up as a mixed bag showcasing Elvis in a number of settings, usually ones that are satisfying even if they’re not necessarily representative. There are better Elvis comps out there, but this does offer lots of good music and a good overview of every style he sang.
