Elvis At Stax (Bonus Tracks, Box Set)
Released: Aug 2013
Because Elvis Presley's 1973 recordings at Stax were spread haphazardly across several poorly packaged albums and singles, the full scope of what the singer had achieved at the legendary Memphis studio wasn't appreciated at the time. But as the excellently programmed Elvis At Stax anthology proves, Presley was still very much in '68 Comeback mode. In the process of fusing everything from country and funk to rock and soul, he unleashes impassioned versions of "Promised Land," "I Got a Feelin' in My Body," "You Asked Me To" and the reflective "Good Time Charlie's Got the Blues."
