    "Memphis Sessions" includes 75-minutes of incredible music from Elvis’ historic 1969 recording sessions at American Sound Studio in Memphis. This was Elvis’ first non-movie studio recording session since his 10-year movie contract ended and his first session since his critically acclaimed 1968 television special. Under the direction of Chips Moman, Elvis recorded "Suspicious Minds," "In the Ghetto," "Kentucky Rain," "Don’t Cry Daddy" and more. You hear Elvis refining his delivery on these iconic songs and gain insight to how Elvis made music when in the recording studio.
