Limited double vinyl LP pressing. ELV1S: 30 #1 Hits is a 2002 greatest hits collection of songs by rock 'n' roll icon Elvis Presley that reached #1 on the Australian, United Kingdom and United States albums charts. The album is the first Elvis Presley album to feature the remix of "A Little Less Conversation" by Junkie XL that was released earlier in the year and reached #1 in the UK and Australia. This style of compilation, dovetailing #1 hits from the two largest record markets in the world, was inspired by the Beatles' 1, which had become a worldwide hit in 2000. Conversely, the latter album had been somewhat inspired by Presley's The Number Ones Hits, released thirteen years earlier, in 1987. The Number One Hits was, in fact, the first compilation of number one hits by any single artist or band released on LP or CD in any country in the world. When released, ELV1S: 30 #1 Hits was an instant success, going straight to the top of the albums charts in several countries and shipping mass quantities around the world. By 2003 the album had received certifications in more than 15 regions and had sold millions of copies worldwide. A companion album, 2nd to None, was released the next year.

Commemorating the 25th anniversary of Elvis Presley's death, 30 #1 HITS presents a career-spanning serving of the King's chart-toppers.
Dating back to "Heartbreak Hotel" (which was inspired by a suicide note printed in the Miami Herald), most of these cuts have become indelibly etched into the fabric of pop culture and each has a unique story behind it. "Love Me Tender" has its origins in the Civil War ballad "Aura Lee," "It's Now Or Never" found Elvis Americanizing the Neapolitan ballad "O Sole Mio," and "Wooden Heart" likewise was converted from a German children's song.

This Memphis native's choice of artists to cover was equally intriguing and includes Hollywood legend Al Jolson ("Are You Lonesome Tonight?"), New Orleans soul shouter Smiley Lewis ("One Night"), blues great Big Mama Thornton ("Hound Dog"), and country titan Hank Snow ("[Now And Then There's] A Fool Such As I"). Further testimony of Presley's long-lasting appeal is the inclusion of the JXL Radio Edit Remix of "A Little Less Conversation," a UK #1 that not only enabled Elvis to have more chart-toppers than The Beatles, but also became a hit in a number of other countries including the United States.
