Elvis : From Nashville To Memphis - The Essential 60's Masters 5CD Set has been packaged in a DVD sized ecolbook, the width of a normal CD. Very nice book style presentation !!! The set starts promisingly with Presley's brilliant first post-Army recordings, originally released on the album Elvis is Back! and the set wraps up with the King's triumphant American Studio recordings, which include the hits In the Ghetto and Suspicious Minds. Even Presley's lean years yielded their share of great recordings, making From Nashville to Memphis an essential addition to any serious music fan's collection.
This set focuses on Elvis' secular sessions only. Existing and future sets will detail Elvis' other 60's activities: the religious recordings, the 1968 TV Special, the 1969 Las Vegas recordings and many other movie soundtracks.
This collection focuses on that part of his career which most clearly demonstrates what Elvis Presley the recording artist - free of the demands of movie scripts, concert and TV audiences and his own past - set out to do.
