From Elvis in Memphis: Legacy Edition Celebrates 40th Anniversary of American Studios Sessions

Jun 30, 2009

Elvis In Memphis: Legacy Edition includes 36 Tracks Across 2 CDs, With 10 Original Mono Single Masters

Elvis Presley’s Memphis sessions proved that sometimes you can go home again. It was January 1969, and Elvis had not recorded in his hometown since leaving Sun Records for RCA in 1955. But the renewed focus and ambition sparked by his wildly successful TV comeback special the previous month propelled him back into a Memphis studio, where in just two weeks of sessions he made some of the most memorable and artistically satisfying music of his career.
This burst of inspired creativity resulted in the critically acclaimed album From Elvis In Memphis and its companion Back In Memphis. “Suspicious Minds,” “In The Ghetto,” “Don’t Cry Daddy” and “Kentucky Rain” were among the unforgettable hits that resulted. This 40th anniversary Legacy Edition contains every track from the sessions recorded at American Studios in Memphis in January and February of 1969.
