Elvis Presley

Yes, issuing a collection of Elvis Presley's love songs at this time of year represents a bit of Valentine's Day venality, but so what? Even the bean counters must have swooned when they heard this 22-song album. The obligatory hits are here, including "Love Me Tender" and "Are You Lonesome Tonight." But other, less familiar tunes, such as "Anything That's Part of You" from 1961, with just a piano, bass, the King's extraordinary voice and the gentle Jordanaires in the background, help make the record an exceptional pleasure. V-Day shoppers be warned: Heart and Soul is not like a box of chocolates because you always know what you're going to get—delicious work from one of America's greatest singers. (RCA)
