Despite the disappointing results when Elvis recorded at the Stax Studios in July, 1973 (which were released as the mediocre Raised on Rock album), the King returned to Stax in December of that same year. The results were a lot better this time. Elvis and his band were really inspired, recording enough songs for two albums (the second album was released under the title Promised Land). Eight of the songs from these sessions ended up on the Good Times album, augmented by the two best songs from the July sessions, "I've Got a Thing About You Baby" and "Take Good Care of Her". These great songs were released as a single, which for some reason barely cracked the Top 40. Most of the other songs on the album, which are mostly ballads, are very good. "Lovin' Arms" and "Good Time Charlie's Got the Blues" are excellent country songs. "I Got a Feelin' in My Body" and "If That Isn't Love" are terrific gospel songs. But probably the most popular song on the album is Elvis' cover version of actor Richard Harris' song "My Boy". This is one of those divorce songs that Elvis was fond of recording at the time, due to what was happening in his personal life, and he really puts his heart into it. This song was so well received that it later was released as a single by popular demand, and reached #20 on the charts. This is a very good album, which I like a lot.
