I'm Leavin'

March 08, 2016 | Music

For record store day 2016 (April 16) a new album will be released: I'm Leavin'. This compilation album brings together the very best recordings of Elvis Presley’s work in the Folk and Country genres from 1966-1973. The collection includes masters from Elvis’ sessions at RCA Victor’s Studio B in Nashville in May 1971, a period from which material penned by several folk writers surfaced spontaneously amid Presley’s gospel and holiday recordings. Ranging from Bob Dylan’s “Tomorrow Is A Long Time” in 1966 to then-contemporary pop-folk such as “Good Time Charlie’s Got The Blues” in 1973, this extraordinary anthology finds Elvis in an introspective mood, masterfully creating definitive versions of iconic compositions that resonated deeply and personally with him.

I like the cover. I love vinyl. But I have no need for the LP.

I will definitely be buying this one, I have read from a credible source that the sound has be reworked on these recordings and will sound awesome especially on Vinyl. Can't wait.
