Comment:

This 2-CD set uses royalty (in all its forms) as the springboard. Disc One uses songs in the royal theme; Disc Two uses artists in the royal theme. Both of these CDs cover a very wide range of musical styles, but I attempted to make the tracks flow from one to the next. I included a lot of fun cheesy pop- and Disc Two was almost required to open and close with the ultimate "royal" artist, The King - Elvis Presley. ALSO: I thought I was being so cute and clever with my title... and discovered that someone had already thought of the same thing before me. Sigh. At least I added a bit of a twist with both songs and artists that fit the theme.

Nice! You could probably do an all-reggae version of this; lots of Kings and Princes in reggae (King Tubby, Prince Jammy, Prince Far-I....)
