Elvis Presley – From Elvis In Memphis


Elvis is in the building or is that onboard the ship. Released in 1969 on RCA records ‘From Elvis in Memphis’ is the 15th studio album by Elvis Presley. This history making release marked the return to non-soundtrack albums after the success of Presley’s 1968 christmas television special. Presley was convinced to leave the comfort of RCA studios and record this album at American Sound in Memphis. Employing the house band known as ‘the Memphis Boys’ it was hoped to capture a country soul sound.

The album peaked at number thirteen on the Billboard 200 and reached number one in the UK. The single ‘In The Ghetto’ reached number three on the Billboard Hot 100 and the album was certified gold by the RIAA in 1970.  Presented to you in all his quadraphonic eight-track glory….   here is the King . Enjoy    CB

    @Owen Smith: You are right. The quad mix is not the greatest. The second side seems to be stereo only. The first side, however, is decent enough – for me at least. The music is Elvis at his best.

    I’ve never been an Elvis fan and this does nothing to convince me. It’s just someone singing. Also the quad mix is very basic, things are hard panned into speakers with no real reason for them being there.

    This. Is. The. Shiznit. Fantastic work…honestly didn’t even know about this one before.

  4. Hi everyone,

    This is my first taste of the Captain’s outstanding work and I’m hooked. I’ve been dreaming of hearing this in Quad for a few years now and I’m listening to this with a huge smile on my face. Job well done Captain! This is my favourite Presley album followed by That’s The Way It Is which I hope we’ll be lucky to hear soon. 🙂

    Excellent result! I love it. The Captain is the man. More from the king is always appreciated.

  6. It’s a Hunk a Hunk of burning Quad. Nice job Captain.
