This review is from: Raised On Rock (Audio CD)
"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.
