This review pertains to the Friday Music vinyl edition. The brilliant American Sound sessions resulted in two albums - From Elvis in Memphis and Elvis Back in Memphis and several hit singles - Suspicious Minds, In the Ghetto, Don't Cty Daddy and Kentucky Rain. In the Ghetto ws the only single included in an album - From Elvis in Memphis. I have From Elvis in Memphis many times over, including an audiophile vinyl release from the 1980s. I discovered Friday Music earlier this year; their gatefold cover 180g vinyl releases are great. From Elvis in Memphis (1969) marks Elvis' second comeback just as Elvis is Back (1960) marked his first post-army comeback.

After a slew of corny movies and a slide into artistic irrelevance, Elvis swung back hard and strong in 1968 with what is now know as "The 68 Comeback Special," an NBC TV program in which the King of Rock'n'Roll reclaimed his Crown from the British boys who had ruled the charts and airwaves in his abscence. From there, Elvis returned to Memphis and took up residence with some serious Soul session men who weren't buying what Elvis had been selling and would've rather been recording with Neil Diamond or Dusty Springfield. For the first time in a long time Elvis was challenged in the studio, and the results are nothing short of amazing. FYI, the album cover pictured here is for "Elvis Country," which is another animal entirely. The cover to the album I'm talking about here has Elvis in front of a black and red background and is a shot directly from the NBC Special.
