Elvis Aaron Presley was born during the great depression into a poor family in
Mississippi. They moved to Memphis during the early fifties, 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 first 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 films, 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 of with
the two coul 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 on to become
definitive classics by any measure of popular music.
