ELVIS PRESLEY | FROM ELVIS PRESLEY BOULEVARD MEMPHIS TENNESSEE (180 GRAM AUDIOPHILE TRANSLUCENT VINYL)
RELEASE DATE: NOVEMBER 4TH, 2016
Elvis Aaron Presley was
born during the Great Depression into a poor family in Mississippi. They moved
to Memphis during the early fties, and as a struggling young truck driver, he
cut some demos at Sun Studios as a gift for his beloved mother Gladys. These
initial songs, of which he had only paid a few dollars to record, would become
the catalyst that would kick-start the beginnings of a soon to be worldwide
superstar unlike the world has ever known.
The folks at RCA Victor
knew that this young fellow named Elvis was destined for superstardom. They
quickly bought out his contract and signed the legend to a long-term deal, and
his rst RCA single Heartbreak Hotel forever etched “The King Of Rock And Roll”
trademark to his name.
From the remainder of the
1950’s into the mid 60’s, Elvis Presley would release several dozen more hit
albums and smash singles, spend time in the Army, star in a plethora of top
charting lms, as well as sell out concert tours around the states and Canada
making him the most successful solo artist of all time.
As the turbulent sixties
roared on, styles of music would change and rock and roll was becoming more
infused with psychedelic and harder rock elements. Elvis wasn’t a follower by
any means, so he got back to his roots and began another chapter of his career
which many have called The Elvis “Comeback” era. First witnessed on his
impeccable Elvis television program on NBC-TV in 1968, a new and exciting rock
superstar was truly back to reclaim his crown.
Thanks to his chart
topping smash recording of In The Ghetto, this southern fried deep soul
sounding Elvis Presley was just what the fans were screaming for and soon
enough an entire album was built around this great new sound entitled From
Elvis In Memphis.
The 1969 album also was a
blockbuster as it topped upper rungs of the pop and country charts, making this
one of his biggest albums of his career as well as one of his most revered.
From Elvis In Memphis truly proved once again that his career was unlike any
other in music history.
Produced by Chips Moman,
the From Elvis In Memphis album takes off with the two soul stirring rockers
Wearin’ That Loved On Look and the Jerry Butler Philly groove of Only The
Strong Survive. More Elvis favorites follow with the country ballad Long Black
Limousine and the rockin’ interpretation of Hank Snow’s classic I’m Movin’ On.
The album also features a nice helping of solid interpretations of Elvis’ own
favorites like Burt Bacharach’s classic Any Day Now , the timeless Gentle On My
Mind by John Hartford, and of course the heartfelt Mac Davis composition In The
Ghetto. In total, the album showcases twelve important Elvis Presley recordings
which have truly gone onto become de nitive classics by any measure of popular
