From Elvis In Memphis
The cover art is pretty poor on this one. It's the familiar front, while the inlay is printed in white on a background based on the NBC-special picture of the front cover. There are worse writers than Colin Escott, and especially about this period of Elvis' career it is always good reading. According to the text there are two pictures inside the American Sound studio... and indeed when you take a very close look you recognize it. As usual with the latest re-releases the CD itself is printed as an old fashioned Gold vinyl record. The back cover is almost sacrilege: a great picture of the 1969 press conference at the International in abominable quality. All songs from the 1969-sessions that were released on single are added to the original album. Of course we got the complete session on last year's "Suspicious Minds"-CD, so the sound quality of this release isn't a surprise.
