5.0 out of 5 stars Blow your brains out! November 5, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This CD features songs from Elvis Presley's American Studios recording sessions in January and February of 1969. This was the first time that Elvis had recorded in Memphis since the Sun Records days, and these are arguably the best recordings he made since that time. These aren't all the recordings he made at the sessions, but most of the best tracks are here. The classic hits "In the Ghetto", "Suspicious Minds", "Don't Cry Daddy" and "Kentucky Rain". Other great songs like "Stranger in My Own Home Town", "Long Black Limousine" and "I'll Hold You in My Heart". Every cut here is a winner. I should mention that the version of "Suspicious Minds" included here has a different mix than the hit single version. The horns are missing, and it doesn't have the "fade out/fade back in" effects at the end of the song. Still, it's a great CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars The King is back August 31, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Throughout the 60's Elvis made films. Sometimes the soundtracks to these were OK, but only occasionally did they do justice to his musical talent.
This album from 1969 is Elvis back in supreme form (sadly perhaps to never match it again). From the opening track "Stranger in my own home town" you know he means business. This song could have been written for Elvis the lyrics are so relevent to the time. The vocals on this track are insistent and he refuses to stop singing regardless of what the band are playing. This is not the only remarkable track on the album. Add to this "Long Black Limousine", "I'll Hold You In My Heart" and "In The Ghetto" and this is reason enough to buy the album already.

Then of course there is "Suspicious Minds" another marvellous track, which brings me to another point about this album. It was recorded in Memphis with a great band of session players. If you can ignore Elvis's voice on this recording (difficult!)and listen to the musicians you'll hear what I mean. There isn't a wasted note on this. This album was recorded shortly after the 1968 comeback special so no doubt they wanted to try and capture some of the magic from that show.

This album isn't as important as the Sun Sessions, but I prefer it. Elvis's voice is better than it was in the mid 1950's, indeed I would suggest that this was as good as you'll ever hear Elvis, and that is a good enough reason to buy this recording.

We search all over Memphis and Graceland trying to find this in CD format. Had the cassette, but wanted a CD. No one carried. As soon as I got home, checked on Amazon and found it. Great collection of songs!

5.0 out of 5 stars Covering 'Elvis in Memphis! January 2, 2013
By David B
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Great Album selection! I had the album, 1969, year in review, which I sold' a few years ago at a garage sale, thinking to myself, hey, your 'record days are over!! HA!!!! I bought this , because It's a really good collection of 'late 60's songs of Elvis. Raw/Edgy! This Album for Elvis defined a decade. including the best of the Memphis years! A nice mid-point between Elvis' Jordanaire! and Moody-Blue! Years. I think this was Elvis at his best!
