After his mother bought him a guitar at the age of 12, Elvis Presley knew he wanted to be an entertainer.

Elvis began his singing career in Memphis as "The Hillbilly Cat" and was picked up by RCA records in 1955. Little did anyone know that this newcomer would bring a new style of rock and roll and dance moves so sexy he would inspire a generation (and the much despised nickname "Elvis the pelvis").

Even after his death, Elvis continues to sell records and has sold over 1 billion albums worldwide to date. Trying to add to that total is the newly released Hitstory.

This three cd set includes all of Elvis's hits, such as "Hound Dog", "All Shook Up," "Jailhouse Rock," and "Viva Las Vegas," as well as his last chart topper, the Paul Oakenfold radio remix for "Rubberneckin."

And for the fan's who already have a complete collection of Elvis's songs, Hitstory includes the previously unreleased "I’m a Roustabout" and a special version of "Are You Lonesome Tonight?" from 1982.

Hitstory is an essential collection that chronicles one of music history's brightest stars.

From his sexy side burns to his slick back hair and the classic front curl, Elvis's hairstyles have stood the test of time and you can view them right here in our celebrity hairstyles gallery.
