Product Description

Amazon.ca

In January 1969, Elvis Presley was still mighty fired up from the success of his legendary NBC-TV "comeback" special, which had aired only a little over a month before. Eager to record some relevant music after a decade of, for the most part, horrible movie soundtracks, Presley entered Chip Loman's famous (122 chart hits in three years at the time) American Studio in Memphis to jam with the also famous house band. Several hit singles would come from these sessions, including "Suspicious Minds", "Don't Cry Daddy", "In the Ghetto", and "Kentucky Rain". From Elvis in Memphis is the first of two albums that came from the American recordings--and it's slightly better than Back in Memphis, including as it does "Long Black Limousine" (about a huge star returning to a small hometown in a hearse, and a song many Presley obituaries would late quote) and a cover of Chuck Willis's "Any Day Now" that actually tops the original. It's worth noting that all the tracks from the American Sessions are available on the box set From Nashville to Memphis: The Essential 60s Masters. --Bill Holdship

5 big gold stars!
from the first track to the last, totally magic.
such a great funky '70s sound, "wearing that loved on look", you can just see those chicks in their mini skirts & knee high boots in formation doing that '70s "shake your heard 'round" dance - far out!
my fave "king" album, ever.
partly as it includes my fave "king" song "any day now" totally beautiful, original issued on a double A vinyl single with "in the ghetto" also included herein, and also a great song, for totally different reasons, an early soundoff song to the state of the nation.
also "suspicious minds" one of his top hit singles, great harmonies.
my other two fave songs here have to be "i'll hold you in my heart" for it's fade-out/fade-(back)in theme... "the stars up in the sky........" & love the "ho ho ho, please wait for me" & "after loving you" as is such a great heartbreaker track, that's cos i'm no good, i'm no good to anyone........
"true love travels on a gravel road" is another lovely song, with a humble message.
"the power of my love" - break it, pound it, lick it, etc,
you'll be taken by the strange & mighty power.....
"kentucky rain" love the theme of trudging town to town, searching for love lost, i kinda know how that feels......!
overall, a brilliant album, an essential one from "the king".

First of all, let me say a big Thank You to the previous reviewers. It was YOUR reviews that overwhemingly swayed me to purchase this fine album. As the title of my post states, if Elvis ever had a masterpiece, this album is it. AWESOME. I got this album just last week, and already I am in love with it. This is quintessential late 60's Elvis. For those of you who think Elvis Presley was just 'Heartbreak Hotel' and 'Hound Dog', you have NO IDEA what you're missing. I think this was the album that showed Elvis's music was changing with the times. This album shows his maturity. From the opening of Wearin' That Loved On Look and Only The Strong Survive, the listener is hooked. Then the awesome bluesy feel of I'll Hold You in My Heart makes you feel you're in an underground, smokey blues club, with the man himself leading the festivities. There is NOT ONE bad song on this fine album. Any Day Now is MAGNIFICENT. This has quickly become one of my favorite songs (not just Elvis songs) of all time. The original album closes with In The Ghetto, my favorite Elvis Presley song of all time. It's also probably Elvis's darkest and most socially conscious song. A GREAT ending to the original record.
The Bonus Tracks are, you guessed it, outstanding. The hits Suspicious Minds and Kentucky Rain are songs I don't think I'll EVER get tired of hearing. Don't Cry Daddy is absolutely superb. And Mama Liked the Roses is a very mellow and fitting end to the album.
Besides Elvis's outstanding vocal delivery, his band, (like all of his musicians during late 60's and 70's era), is HOT! For people who think Elvis lost something after his Army years, THIS is the album that redeemed him. By the way, did I mention that I'm only 24 years old? That just goes to show the awesome power of Elvis and his music....

5.0 out of 5 stars Elvis' finest album Nov. 16 2001
Format:Audio CD
Elvis was 34 years old when he recorded this brilliant collection of pop, country, blues and soul music. It's an eclectic mix, and probably not to all tastes, but one thing is abundantly clear - Elvis was at his peak when he set foot in the American studios in Memphis that winter of 1969.
Vocally, this is a very different Elvis from even two years earlier, when he was still producing the sweet almost-crooning sound associated with soundtracks such as Blue Hawaii. Here his voice is stronger and darker, and the raucous opening track (Wearin' that loved on look) shows he is not afraid to sacrifice beauty of sound for a more dramatic effect. That's not to say this album doesn't contain some mellow singing as well - In the Ghetto is proof of that.
But what makes this album great is the sheer individuality displayed in every track as Elvis gives each song his trademark commitment and energy. Stand-outs for me include Only the Strong Survive, in which Elvis transforms an otherwise standard song into a very personal statement; a definitive Gentle on My Mind; After Loving You (with its brilliant vocal gyrations); Any Day Now; and the haunting and moving True Love Travels On A Gravel Road.
The bonus tracks include two songs that should have been on the original album - Suspicious Minds and Kentucky Rain. It's great to have them reunited with their companion pieces from the same recording sessions.
Just one tiny criticism - why has BMG included a photo of the Hollywood Elvis on its cover? It's precisely THAT Elvis that this album seeks to escape from! Perhaps they were being ironic?
The liner notes are excellent, and complement a masterful artistic statement from pop's greatest icon.

5.0 out of 5 stars The greatest album ever Nov. 15 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This isn't just the greatest Elvis album ever, but the best album period. Elvis' voice is fantastic, and his interpretation of the songs is outstanding.
There is no other singer in the history of popular music that could pull off an album like this. Elvis covers pop, soul, blues, rock, country, gospel....If this record was done now, by a contemporary artist, it would be considered revolutionary.
Buy this album and you won't be disappointed. It shows that Elvis was as important in the late 60's as he was in the 50's (And he continued to be in the 70's, or have we forgotten the Aloha from Hawaii special, something that had never been tried before).
From Elvis in Memphis shows the greatest entertainer in history reinventing himself, and contains Elvis' most mature music he had done to that point.
TCB Baby !!
