This new and greatly improved reissue of "Promised Land" shows that Elvis Presley was NOT a washed up has-been by the 70s. There are a lot of fine moments on this disk, which is composed of the entire 1975 LP of the same name as well as 8 out of the 10 tracks from the 1974 LP "Good Times". In fact, this particular release combines every master Elvis recorded in Stax Studios in December '73.
1-PROMISED LAND Elvis goes full steam on this Chuck Berry rocker. This particular mix is very groovy, with the echo effect and the backing vocals. For some reason, on the "Walk a Mile In My Shoes" 70s box, they used an alternate mix, without the echo and no backing vocals. Fine outtakes of this song are found on "Rhythm and Country" and "Platinum: A Life In Music"
2-THERE'S A HONKY TONK ANGEL This rather typical country song is elevated by Elvis' voice. Another example of the singer improving an otherwise ordinary tune.
3-HELP ME Elvis really identified with the words of this song, a pleasant easy-listening tune. It is rumored that Elvis was so into doing this one, he was literally down on his knees in the recording studio when recording this one.
4-MR. SONGMAN One of this CD's lesser moments, this is basically a throw-away number. It's not a BAD song, but very unmemorable.
5-LOVE SONG OF THE YEAR Another so-so country tune, again elevated by Elvis' pleasant voice.
6-IT'S MIDNIGHT An excellent ballad, Elvis lets his range get a good workout on this highlight.
7-YOUR LOVE'S BEEN A LONG TIME COMING Another fine song, again sung passionately by The King.
8-IF YOU TALK IN YOUR SLEEP One of the funkiest tracks Elvis recorded in the 70s, this features a nice horn arrangement.

This re-issue of PROMISED LAND with its bonus tracks represents the best studio album Elvis made in the last seven years of his life, that is, 1971-77. The emphasis is on slower country ballads, but as with any Elvis album there's a mix of styles, from the infectious rocker "Promised Land" to the exotic romance of "Spanish Eyes." Several are spiritually oriented: "Help Me," "I Got a Feelin' in My Body," and "If That Isn't Love." Though Elvis's health had declined some by 1973, there's little evidence of that here - his voice was still strong and he sang with much conviction. Still, on PROMISED LAND the material and Elvis himself seldom equal the benchmark he set in his great 1969 Memphis sessions - check the CDs From Elvis in Memphis: Legacy Edition or The Memphis 1969 Anthology: Suspicious Minds. But that was perhaps the peak of his career.

As with most of his '70s recordings, PROMISED LAND has a very "lush" background of instrumentals and vocals, but in my opinion this is seldom excessive ("My Boy" being an exception) and never is Elvis himself hard to hear. The stereo sound quality is very good, apart from an occasional background hiss.

PROMISED LAND is one of three albums that came from Elvis's 1973 "Stax Sessions" in Memphis. Actually, GOOD TIMES was the best album to come out of those sessions, but the CD of that album has only the original 10 songs on it, while tracks 11-18 on this re-issue of PROMISED LAND are the best songs from

This underrated album is the best Elvis album from the '70s. It shows a good range of styles as well as excellent singing throughout.

Promised Land- 10/10 An awesome performance of the Chuck Berry classic and the best Elvis rock song from the '70s.

There's A Honky Tonk Angel (Who Will Take Me Back In)- 8/10 A great song, but my problem with it is the lack of drums.

Help Me- 10/10 One of his best gospel performances. You can tell he is singing from his heart on this one.

Mr. Songman- 10/10 My favorite song on the album. The song is so sad, yet so powerful.

Love Song Of The Year- 10/10 And if there was, indeed, an award for love songs of the year, this song would have won in the year 1975. Another sad song, and my 2nd favorite on the album.

It's Midnight- 10/10 The B-side to the Promised Land single, and what many fans call one of the best Elvis songs.

Your Love's Been A Long Time Coming- 9/10 A very average country song which is above average only because of the performance.

If You Talk In Your Sleep- 10/10 One of the funkiest performances Elvis ever did. This song just screams out Motown.

Thinking About You- A great love song with a folk-rock feel and a beautiful melody.

You Asked Me Two- A Waylon classic given a wonderful performance by the King.

The reissue of this album features several bonus tracks, which I will not comment on, but my favorites include My Boy, Loving Arms, Talk About The Good Times, and Good Time Charlie's Got The Blues.

This is what Elvis chose to record, he didn't just slip into a Vegas act, but continued to make astounding music up until his death. Elvis Presley is not known by today's audience for anything outside of his hits, while most of his great songs are found on the albums. This album should be in any music lovers collection.
