4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By DJ McGovern on 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.

Forget the Elvis sightings, the gaudy impersonators, the peanut butter and banana tales... this 2-CD set is the essence of what Elvis Presley's legacy was all about. This collection of songs speaks out to ALL music fans as it contains an ecclectic sampling of various genre (soul, blues, country, gospel, rock, pop and everything inbetween). Presley delivers each song as if it was his final plea to showcase his mastery as an artist. And showcase it he does - From the yearning and haunting vocals of Long Black Limousine and In The Ghetto to the "in your face" attitude of the blues and rock inspired Stranger In My Own Hometown and Power of My Love. From the country rocker I've Movin' On, to the power ballad of Without Love to the contemporary pop feel of Any Day Now. One song is better than the next. Everytime you listen you will find a new personal favourite. There are many hidden gems here - not to mention classics like Kentucky Rain, Don't Cry Daddy and the superbly crafted Suspicious Minds which became Elvis 18th number one hit! Ladies and gentlemen this is the "real" Elvis. And just in case you're one who hasn't quite understood what all the "fuss" is about when it comes to Elvis Presley, this set will definitely put your doubts to rest. I guess one doesn't get inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Gospel Hall of Fame on looks alone! It must be why he's called the KING!

It's been said many times: "There's Elvis...and there's everyone else."

When Elvis entered American Studios in January of 1969 he was still hot off the success of his NBC Comeback Special. If the "'68 Comeback" restored the sheen to a musical legacy jeopardized by a decade of recording largely fifth-rate movie soundtracks, then the album he was to create at American was to redefine him as a performer and cement his legend to near-mythic proportions. Simply put, FROM ELVIS IN MEMPHIS rates as the single greatest artistic rebirth in the history of popular music; it is a masterpiece!

As a young Elvis so astutely commented when he walked into Sam Phillips' Sun Studios for the very first time, "I sing all kinds," and no album offers greater validation of this claim than FROM ELVIS IN MEMPHIS. Clearly inspired, Elvis digs deep and delivers crunching, blues-infused rock 'n' roll ("Power of My Love," "After Loving You"), passionate, gospel-tinged soul ("Wearin' That Loved On Look"), and smart and classy pop ("Gentle on My Mind" and his exquisite cover of Burt Bacharach's "Any Day Now"). He also follows up the '68 Special's powerful "If I Can Dream" with another "message" song, "In the Ghetto," -- an instant classic.

Not forgetting his country roots, Elvis turns in a sensational performance -- and a rare harmony vocal! -- on the graceful, lilting ballad, "True Love Travels on a Gravel Road," and emotes plaintively on "It Keeps Right On A-Hurtin'," a traditional country and western weepie.

Still, it's the magnificent "Long Black Limousine" and its seamless and effortless blending of country, rock, gospel and blues, that takes top honours; this is Elvis at his most soulful and dynamic -- it's why "there's Elvis and then there's everyone else."

Elvis had a few more triumphs to come as he entered the 1970's, but never again would he record an album of such remarkable depth and purpose; FROM ELVIS IN MEMPHIS is Elvis' best.

Format: Audio CD
I can only reiterate what every other reviewer has said when declaring this the best album Elvis ever did. Parker is reputed to have had less to do with what tunes were recorded and it IS very easy to hear that Elvis loves every song he's singing instead of singing per the usual TP formula. This despite the fact that Elvis had a cold while he was recording this album. I usually favor more of the early Elvis but I'm currently just playing this one over and over again. No Elvis fan should be without this CD.
