That's The Way It Is (Soundtrack, Box Set)
Released: Nov 1970
Label: RCA RECORDS LABEL
Elvis' first live album from Vegas, In Person at the International Hotel, was modeled after the '68 comeback special in both stage persona (greaser) and song selection (pure rock 'n' roll). That's the Way It Is, in contrast, documents the earliest manifestations of Presley's decline: peacock onesies, vocal decadence, show tunes, wisecracks, lush orchestration. But since the year is 1970, he's still full of vitality (and skinny). Both "Polk Salad Annie" and "I Got a Woman" are hard-swinging testaments to his ability to collapse country, rock, funk, gospel, soul and pop into one another.
