Recordings that Elvis Presley recorded in the famous Stax studio in Memphis for the first time are published together in a box set, marking 40 years since the songs are recorded. Luxurious triple CD box set contains three albums that were recorded in 1973 in the period between July and December and include rare photos and rejected clips that did not finish on the plates. Presley is in 1973 after a few bad movies returned back to music, concerts and recording.
In January he performed a concert “Aloha from Hawaii” which was broadcast by satellite, after he went to Memphis in order to concentrate on meeting the obligations under the contract of recording new albums. So in the summer of that year he recorded in the famous Stax Studios in Memphis, the home of Otis Redding, Isaac Hayes and Sam and Dave, the place where created “Memphis soul”. Box Set “Elvis at Stax: Deluxe Edition” includes the albums “Raised on Rock,” “I’ve Got a Thing About You Baby” and “For Ol ‘Time’s Sake”, which were recorded between 20 and 23 July, and while filming the song “Girl of Mine” Presley noted that he had stolen the microphone.
After that, Presley returned to the studio in December for another week filming during which, among others, recorded the song “I Got a Feeling in My Body”, which was originally written by Denis Linde. Bassist Norbert Putnam who has recorded with Presley recalled that Elvis then was overweight and less energetic than in previous recording studio in Nashville. This box set will appear on sale a few days before Elvis Week, when thousands of his fans will gather in Memphis to commemorate the day he died (August 16 in 1977).
