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

"Raised On Rock" must surely be Elvis' most underrated 70's album along with 1976's "From Elvis Presley Boulevard, Memphis, Tennesee".

Nevertheless, as with every Elvis album there are some hidden gems that make the grade and qualify the album as an overall enjoyable listen. The title track is fascinating to hear because of it's semi-autobiographical tones and lyrics. I've always had a soft-spot for "Find Out What's Happening", "Just a Little Bit", "For Ol' Times Sake", the beautiful "Sweet Angeline" and the Leiber and Stoller rocker "Three Corn Patches".

I would much rather experience the mature Elvis sound of his later concert years than experience the cotton-candy embarrassment of some of his movie soundtracks from a decade earlier.

This is quite a tricky 1973 album, and possibly not the best introduction to Elvis Presley.

For someone who is arguably the founder of modern day rock with his blending of rhythm and blues with country and gospel to bring out rockabilly leading to rock and roll, singing the title track Raised On Rock is a little surprising. Though he performs the song brilliantly, just look at the lyrics:

I remember as a child I used to hear
Music that they played Lord with a feel'
Some call it folk, some call it soul
People let me tell you it was rock and roll

Then he also sings:

Listening to the music that my idols made
I knew every single record the DJ's played
A honky tonk a Hound Dog, a Johnny B. Goode
Chain Gang, Love Is Strange, Knock On Wood

I was raised on Rock, etc....

Elvis was not raised on rock. Instead, he grew up listening to the blues, country, and gospel music, which he later blended and used to launch his style of Rock'n'Roll.

With a front cover showing a flashy Elvis in action on stage, the remainder of the album is a mixed bag of styles and moods but perhaps not as memorable as his other '70s albums. There's even a forgetful rock'n'roll track called 'Three Corn Patches' that Elvis should have left for some other unfortunate singer to record.

Here's a list of the album songs and my personal opinion of each track:

1. Raised On Rock - Superb performance by Elvis and his driving band
2. Are You Sincere - Attempts to re-capture the success of his 1960 hit Are You Lonesome Tonight. Nice enough but didn't have the same impact
3. Find Out What's Happening - Funky Rock'n'Roll. Love it
4. I Miss You - Great love song

The story of Elvis's last recording years, in my opinion have often been unfairly slated. In fact he cut many great tracks in the years from 73-76 but the Raised On Rock album has long been derided. It probably did not help that the lead single and title track was a bit of a mis-fire (reaching the lower edges of the chart)and was similar in vein to Charlie Rich's Rollin With The Flow (a much better song) recorded a few years later. Also that it came as a low paced affair after the success of the Aloha special But the album contains a real interesting mix of country, soul-funk and pop that few others were recording at the time apart from maybe Jerry Lee Lewis. Jerry Lee actually did a good version of Just a Little Bit which Presley covered here. Find Out Whats Happenin is on the money soul with shouted girl singer chorus and For Ol Time Sake is pure class with a great laid back late night feel to it. I Miss You or Sweet Angeline should have been the singles or a double A side and would probably have fared better with both getting a committed performance. Girl Of Mine though should have been re-recorded but its a mediocre song at best. Are You Sincere is another pleasing ballad with only some slightly off key backing vocals at the very end. Three Corn Patches is not everyones cup of tea but I like it and again the girl group backing help drive along a nice bit of 70's rock n roll. Its a "good" rather than great album which might have been better received had they combined the best tracks with some of the later tracks recorded at Stax in December of the same year but as always RCA's relentless release schedule won over.Read more ›

Elvis was not in good shape when he recorded this album in 1973. He was tired, addicted to prescription drugs, and became disinterested with life altogether. This album was antipated as Elvis' final glorious moment in Memphis, but most of the music here reveals a different story. Only one recording was actually completed in Memphis ("Girl of Mine") while the others remained unfinished. The two best tracks on this CD are the ones recorded in Palm Springs, California ("Are You Sincere" and "I Miss You"). But like with many of Elvis' least successful or remembered albums, there's usually one exceptional song that sadly remains ignored, and "I Miss You" is one example. It is handled beautifully by Elvis, and sounds like he actually cared when he sang it (which was considered rare for him during this period). I recommend this album mainly for serious Elvis fans (like myself, as I bought the CD when I was in Scotland a few months ago). But most of the material is mediocre, sad to say, including the lame title track.
