Biography

Elvis Aaron Presley is one of the biggest-selling artists of all-time, but mere numbers cannot begin to explain the colossal cultural impact he had in the mid-20th Century. He was a central figure in the transformation of the grey, conservative 50s into the technicolor 60s through the liberalizing effect of rock and pop music. Frank Sinatra had proved extremely popular in the 40s with young ... Read more in Amazon's Elvis Presley Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Promised Land 9 Aug 2013
By Amazon Customer TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent 3 disc box set of Elvis' 1973 visits to Stax recording studio. The music ranges from R&B, Country to more Pop orientated tracks. There are some mighty fine tender ballads - that are heart-breaking to say the very least. Elvis is in fine form, buoyed by the success of the tv show `Elvis: Aloha from Hawaii via satellite' watched by 1.5 Billion earlier on in the year.

Cd 1. (59.23mins). There are 17 outtakes in all, a mix of groovy R&B tracks, Country to beautiful ballads mixed in with a bit of studio banter. The quality is so high (and these are outtakes) but he set the bar extremely high didn't he. There are so many highlights but standouts for me - `Promised Land' (Take 4), `For ol' time sake' (take 4) and `It's midnight' (Take 7). 9/10.

Cd 2. (61.48mins). Consists of 10 outtakes that again breathe something different into each one of these tracks. `Take good care of her' is outstanding as is the unfinished rehearsal of `It's diff'rent now' - there are so many beautiful lyrics in this song which he pours his heart out on (nice to hear a different version than on the 70's Masters Box Set). There are also 10 master tracks from the first session recorded in July, many of which are sublime - especially `Sweet Angeline'. 10/10

Cd 3. (53.17mins). 18 master tracks from the December session, including `My boy', `Loving arms', `Good time Charlie...' and `You asked me to'. All fantastic tracks. 10/10.

The package also comes with a really nice 44 page colour booklet that has some great photo's in it. Overall the sound quality is great. A couple of niggles, the size of the set is an odd 8x8 inches but its beautifully done with a die cut front cover. The discs are a little difficult to get out of there slip pockets but this is a minor niggle of a great package. Really glad I brought the 3 disc version and not the single disc as the outtakes are worth the extra money. Highly recommended. 10/10.

5.0 out of 5 stars A necessary album 26 Oct 2013
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
For many years in Memphis (And I know the city well) the fact that Elvis had two recording sessions at Stax was only known to his many fans. There was a Stax exhibition just off Beale a while ago & I noticed there was no mention of Elvis being there. I mentioned this politely to the man in charge & I could tell he did not believe me.. "Stax was for Black artists & Elvis recorded at Sun" etc. I ventured that American Sound also had Elvis recording there, but he did not know that either! Incidentally, Stax is now realising the pulling power of Elvis to get visitors into their new building, although there is still precious little recognition of Elvis being there. (Actually in a way they are right, because the building Elvis recorded in, the old cinema, was pulled down a least a decade ago & the new building has no connection with Elvis) As Elvis fan I would definitely pass on this tour if you don't want to be frustrated. But this album is very good. The 2nd sessions there produced some amazingly good tracks, not one bad song, with Promised Land being a standout. Buy the album, but if you ever get to Memphis avoid the tour!

5.0 out of 5 stars Red Hot Elvis wax!! 9 Aug 2013
Format:Vinyl
Take a trip to the PROMISED LAND - Elvis At Stax 2-LP is a fantastic melting pot of swaggering R&B and some of the greatest ballads ever recorded - all in fabulous sound - I'm playing it on a REGA RP6 and the sound is smooth and warm sounding; a prime Elvis vinyl audiophile release! There's nothing better for a discerning vinyl fan than dropping the needle on a red-hot wax release - this FANTASTIC Elvis vinyl is no exception - the sound is - simply SENSATIONAL!! It's an excellent Elvis@Stax overview: a sweet black candy heavyweight vinyl 180gram with vintage orange RCA labels (with cool RCA/Legacy mini logos ).
Sadly there's no gatefold sleeve or booklet, but with music this good, does it matter? Standouts: The infectious R&B grooves of, "Find Out What's Happening" --" Raised On Rock's" pumping bass and lyrical story -- a pool of tender, sweet, heartfelt ballads - add some gospel and funky horns -- and a Chuck Berry cover that melts speaker grills. Rock, soul, pop, country & R&B - it's all here on Elvis' 1973 STAX recordings extravaganza!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A good record of 1973 28 Aug 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Elvis was still at the top of his game in 1973 and this is a great CD set to show off his range. It's a shame that by the end of that year he would then be plagued with illness on and off for the next four years but still be able to give so much musically to the world

5.0 out of 5 stars Hail the King ! 10 Aug 2013
By wardy
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is fantastic and worth every penny. On the outakes Elvis sounds like he is having a ball and the band excel at funking up his sound. I had no idea how productive the Stax sessions were, and I can't recommend these recordings highly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime Elvis at Stax recordings 19 Aug 2013
By OMG! It's got a plug! TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a superb collection of music that Elvis recorded during two sessions at Stax Studios in July and December 1973. It's a delicious melting pot of soulful country, R'n'B, ballads and pop. Elvis is (unsurprisingly) in fine voice and he highlights that nobody before or since sings a ballad quite like him. He's backed by some of the best musicians in the business and during the outtakes you get a sense of just how much fun Elvis had recording these tracks. The sound quality is crystal clear and it's just an out and out joy to listen to.

***If you buy the single CD edition of this album DIRECT from Amazon, in addition to the CD you get all the 55 tracks that comprise the Deluxe Edition immediately auto-ripped to your Amazon Cloud Player that you can then listen to or download at no extra cost!***
