MRS will release a 2CD/100page book compilation titled 'Memphis Recording Service: The Complete Works 1953 - 1955' on November 25. The 100-page book chronicles Elvis' short recording career there, from its humble beginnings (his personal acetate recordings from July 1953 and January 1954) through to the final Sun sessions in 1955. The full and comprehensive text is complemented by rare photographs and unseen pieces of documentation. The 2CD's contain the complete archival studio recordings from 1953-1955: Elvis' personal acetates, the Sun masters, along with rare session outtakes. The tracks have been painstakingly remastered and restored. There are many highlights on this new release. All of the newly remastered tracks now sound much clearer and crisper. Indeed, all previous erroneous mastering faults and miscalculations have been rectified on this release, making it the best collection thus far.

Elvis Country : Elvis Presley's Concept Album

The I'm 10,000 Years Old : Elvis Country' album 'tells us as much about the man who created it as anything he ever did'. In January 1971, RCA records slipped its latest Elvis Presley LP on the market, not two months after the previous one. That record, 'I'm 10,000 Years Old: Elvis Country', the singer's 30th of original material (excluding live collections, compilations and greatest hits sets), wasn't just another Elvis LP. It was an honest to gosh concept LP. The songs were not only linked stylistically and thematically, but all the performances were linked by splices of a song interspersed between each number. Even the cover wasn't the usual head shot of a smiling Elvis, concert pose, or movie still. In their place was a sepia toned photo of a very familiar looking young boy, Elvis Presley aged two.

'Elvis Gold Records Vol. 4' FTD 2 CD Classic Album to be released October

Follow That Dream (FTD) will release 'Elvis Gold Records Vol. 4' as a Special Edition 2 CD set in their Classic Album Series in October. It was 10 years after the release of Elvis' Golden Records in 1958, that RCA Victor released Elvis' Gold Records Volume 4. It contained seven 'B' sides and only five 'A' sides. Whether at the behest of Colonel Tom Parker, or RCA, the philosophy of not including tracks that already featured on existing albums weakened what could have been a more powerful and hit-laden compilation.

Jenny Maxwell and Elvis : The Seat Of The Trouble

Let's just say it wasn't Jenny Maxwell's day. It all started early, when scenes for 'Blue Hawaii', Hal Wallis production, called for Jenny to try to drown herself, be rescued by Elvis Presley, who then turns the tiny 19-year-old blonde over his knee and gives her a sound spanking. For the long shots and close-ups, Jenny dunked herself thoroughly three times, was hauled out and spanked by Elvis, a total of four times.

The Story Behind 'Heartbreak Hotel'

A suicide note was the unlikely inspiration behind the song that became Elvis Presley's first No. 1 hit and million-selling single. Steel guitarist and session musician Tommy Durden read a newspaper article about a man who had killed himself, leaving behind a piece of paper with the haunting words: 'I walk a lonely street'. Durden brought the article to his friend and cowriter Mae Boren Axton. A 41-year-old high school English teacher who moonlighted as a journalist and a songwriter, Axton had notched a few hits in the early '50s with artists such as Perry Como and Ernest Tubb. In late 1955, she took a part-time position as a public relations secretary for Elvis' manger, Colonel Tom Parker. As Axton and Durden discussed how they could turn the newspaper article into a song, Axton suggested that there be a 'Heartbreak Hotel' at the end of the lonely street. With that flash of inspiration, the pair was off and running. Painting a picture of a place where 'broken-hearted lovers cry away their gloom' and 'the desk clerk's dressed in black', they managed to convey in very few words a mood that was both romantically charged and funereal.

Review : 'Elvis : Way Down In The Jungle Room' Sony Legacy 2 CD

The cleverly titled 'Way Down in the Jungle Room' is another Elvis session anthology from RCA/Legacy that was conceived in the style of 2013's critically acclaimed 'Elvis at Stax'. It includes all the masters and many outtakes from the 'Jungle Room' sessions that took place from February 2-8 and October 29-30, 1976 at the 'den' of Graceland, Elvis' home in Memphis, TN. Back then, nobody could have guessed that these sessions would become a rather sad part of music history as Elvis Presley's last studio recordings. The songs that were recorded at those sessions ended up on the albums 'From Elvis Presley Boulevard, Memphis, Tennessee' (1976) and 'Moody Blue' (1977), which were both still released during Elvis' lifetime.

Review : 'The Sweet Inspirations' CD

On stage during the filming of 'Elvis: That's The Way it Is' Elvis joked and teased the 'Sweet Inspirations' that you would bring in the Supremes, with Mahalia Jackson singing lead. He did not have to go that far, he had an ideal group in front of him (as Elvis fans know), but the person to bring in, or rather bring back was the groups founder, Cissy Houston. Emily 'Cissy' Houston was the real killer feature of the group, certainly when listening to this CD, and she was backed by three very competent singers in Myrna Smith, Sylvia Shemwell and Estelle Brown who managed a great mix of a gospel sound and Atlantic soul music.

Ben Weisman : Why Elvis Recorded 57 Of My Songs

'I approached writing for Elvis differently than I did for any other artist. The songs had to have acombination of blues, country, rock and pop [what came to becalled 'rockabilly']. It was like walking in his musical shoes. With each new Elvis movie, more of my songs were being recorded. It became more and more exciting, for I was becoming the only songwriter to have so many songs recorded by him.

Elvis Presley and Roy Hamilton

You may never have heard a Roy Hamilton song - he is not played much on the radio anymore, and is prized mainly by rhythm-and-blues aficionados, especially in England - but you’ve heard the reach of his gospel-tinged voice. Hamilton was 'one of Elvis’s chief vocal inspirations', according to Elvis Presley’s biographer Peter Guralnick, who also noted that Elvis was 'one of Roy Hamilton’s most devoted admirers'. In 1969 Elvis and Roy met at the American Sound Studios in Memphis. Both were being produced by Chips Moman, Elvis at night and Roy during the day. Elvis was thrilled to discover that Roy (his boyhood idol) would be working at the same studio.

Review : Elvis Country FTD Special Edition 2 CD Set

How do you follow up an album like From Elvis In Memphis and the singles and follow up album that flowed from the 1969 recording sessions at Chip's Moman's Memphis American Sound Studio's? In February 1970 RCA recorded Elvis live in Las Vegas and released the classic live album, On Stage, but it was not until June of that year that Elvis re-entered a studio to cut an album proper. Elvis Country was the result, released in January 1971, it was Elvis' only real concept album and in my opinion does rate as Elvis best album. Elvis recorded country music throughout his career - from classics at Sun sessions in the Fifties to unrepentant schlock. 1971's Elvis Country isn't as famous as his 1969 landmark From Elvis In Memphis but it's one of his most consistent, thematically tight albums, showing off his voice in boundless, effortless form and taking on a set of songs he had a deep connection with.
