About this item

Riding high on the success of 'Aloha From Hawaii', Elvis did something remarkable. He decided that his next recording project would be on his home turf - Memphis, TN. The most desirable studio in town was the red-hot STAX - the launching pad of such greats as Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, Sam & Dave and Isaac Hayes. Elvis assembled the very best musicians in town - members of Booker T. and The MGs, The Memphis Boys and his own TCB band to create the ultimate band and he searched for fresh new material that would reflect his new path. Such songs as “I Got A Feelin’ In My Body” and “Loving Arms” demonstrate an artist looking to broaden his palette and his reach.

The Stax material has never been positioned as a whole body of work - but is an amazing chapter of Elvis’ career. With the 'Elvis At Stax' release, all of this material is collected for the first time. Along with some of the funky outtakes, it creates a fresh new package that, while it doesn’t have the known hits, tells a great story.
