This review is from: Promised Land (Audio CD)
When Elvis first entered the Stax studios in Memphis, mid-1973; the session was doomed and proved very unsucessfull with all but two songs being any good (If You Don't Come Back & I Got a Thing About You Baby).
Forward a few months, and the King returns to Stax and delivers some of the performances of his life.
The Stax sessions strongly rate along side the Memphis 69 and Nashville 71 sessions as Elvis best work of the late 60s and 70s.
Tracks like Promised Land and If You Talk In Your Sleep are breathtakingly good. The entire CD is outstanding, especially for those who enjoy country tinged music, although there is rock, soul and funk here also; this cd will not fail to please.
