Recorded in 1970 and released in 1971, Elvis Country was the culmination of a remarkable career resurrection. Starting with his 1968 Comeback Special, Elvis went on to reel off the brilliant From Elvis in Memphis (and the second-helping, Back in Memphis), the smartly constructed Vegas show of On Stage, and the studio/live That's the Way It Is. He capped the run with this 1971 return to his roots, branding these country, gospel, blues, rockabilly and western swing covers with authority. Elvis showed his genius was rooted in his passion for music, which encompassed everything from the early rockabilly of Sanford Clark's "The Fool" (written, surprisingly, by Lee Hazlewood) to the then-contemporary hit "Snowbird," as well as classics from Ernest Tubb, Lester Flatt & Bill Monroe, Willie Nelson and Hank Cochran.

Recorded in RCA's famed Studio B with Presley regulars James Burton, Charlie McCoy and Chip Young; the newly assembled studio hands included several players from the Muscle Shoals powerhouse, and the sessions were produced by Felton Jarvis.

The people who have this "camp" image of Elvis Presley at the end of his life as an overweight, prescription drug-addicted parody of what he had once been would do well to remember that, at his best, there were only a handful of others that could even come close to matching him, and none that could surpass him--and that includes Michael Jackson, and Garth Brooks.

As of late, RCA has gone out of its way to shine the light on a most productive period of the King's life, that being the period between 1969 and 1972, when, emboldened by his 1968 NBC-TV special, he had regained his footing as perhaps the greatest singer in 20th century American popular music. Back in 2009, they had released FROM ELVIS IN MEMPHIS and BACK IN MEMPHIS together in a Legacy Edition that bought together everything the King did with Chips Moman in his hometown of Memphis in early 1969. In 2010, they came out with another Legacy Edition, one that combined the 1970 album ON STAGE with the first LP of the 2-LP 1969 FROM MEMPHIS TO VEGAS/FROM VEGAS TO MEMPHIS; both of those albums touched on Elvis' first two engagements in Las Vegas, in August 1969 and February 1970. And here, they have come up with another Legacy Edition. This time, it is combining two albums of Elvis' from 1971--ELVIS COUNTRY; and LOVE LETTERS FROM ELVIS.

Both albums came about from sessions that the King did with his usual backing band and producer Felton Jarvis in Nashville during the summer of 1970. As can be indicated by the title ELVIS COUNTRY, Elvis was venturing back to his more rustic country roots, much as FROM ELVIS IN MEMPHIS was a largely R&B/pop enterprise.

"Elvis Country" remains one of Presley's best and most enduring albums. It's certainly his finest studio LP of the 1970s. For perhaps the only time in his career, Elvis chose to make a concept album that reflected his eclectic taste in rock, blues, country and gospel. As a result, "Elvis Country" has a seamless quality that cannot be found on any other Presley album. Every track is a gem -- from the passionate "Tomorrow Never Comes" to the jam-session atmosphere of "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On" to the stirring poignancy of "Make the World Go Away." You can hear Elvis' mastery from beginning to end. In retrospect, "Elvis Country" is Presley's most rewarding studio album as well as a timeless personal statement.

I think most of the information regarding this truely magnificent album can be found in the previous well written reviews.
The Album is truely one of Elvis' greatest efforts and often neglected to be mentioned as one of his best work and maybe one of country music best albums ever......
What the previous reviewers fail to understand is this is a legacy re-issue - not a collection, and as such should be as close as possible in any aspect to the original album release in 1971 ( for better or for worse ).
So if you are looking for the complete versions without the connecting segments - buy the "Walk A mile In Shoes" box - All songs are there ( Not only 10 as mentioned ) , this box also packs together for the first time all of the 34 songs recorded on the Nashville legendary 04/70 sessions.
As A legacy re-issue RCA has done a great job - it's like buying the original album all over again with all the missing singles recorded with the album but not included eventually upon it's release ( Where Did They Go Lord should have been included )
