From Elvis In Memphis Vinyl

August 30, 2019 | Music

The Music on Vinyl label will release a 50th Anniversary Edition of the classic 1969 "From Elvis in Memphis" album  on October 18, 2019. This re-issue comes on 180 gram audiophile vinyl.

'From Elvis In Memphis' is the tenth studio album by Elvis Presley, originally released in 1969. The recording of the album marked the definite return of Presley to non-soundtrack albums, after finishing his movie contract with Paramount pictures. Motivated by his early influences in Country, Rhythm & Blues and the latest music trend in Memphis being Gospel and Soul, Presley chose to record these songs at the Memphis-based American Sound Studio. 

His comeback was definitive when he scored a hit with the sublime 'In the Ghetto', which reached number three on the Billboard Hot 100. The album can be seen as one of his best recordings, with support of some fantastic musicians. It is ranked many times as one of the best white soul albums of all time. From Elvis In Memphis is a 50th anniversary edition.

Instead of the ftd box set with the american sound sessions they should have released a box set to celebrate this album with the sessions for the Back in Memphis Album. But, no. They passed the chance to bring Elvis in the focus of the music world. Just look what the Beatles have done with 3 ( til now, I am counting the soon realeased Abbey Road into ) of there albums at the 50th anniversary.

And that´s not all. Here in my country you can´t even find some original albums like Elvis is back or any other, no, all you can find are a lot of greatest hits albums. A few years ago they started a series, the Legacy Edition, but you can´t find them in shops here in Austria, Maybe one but that´s all. You can get the all the original albums from the Rolling Stones, the Beatles or even David Bowie, so why not more original albums in the stores from Elvis ??? Something I could and would not understand. Come on, sony !!!
