Extended Interview About Elvis at Stax Now Available for Basic and Plus Insiders

May 03, 2013

Basic and Plus Elvis Insiders can enjoy the extended interview with Stax Museum of American Soul Music's Tim Sampson. Tim recently stopped by Graceland to share the history of Stax and talked about Elvis' time recording in the legendary studio. In July and December of 1973, Elvis recorded three albums at Stax Records. The albums include "Raised On Rock," "Good Times" and "Promised Land," which produced four top 20 hits on the charts. Sampson shares stories about Elvis' time at Stax and how after decades of being abandoned, the city of Memphis united to honor the musical history and legendary Stax artists. On May 2, 2003, the Stax Museum of American Soul Music opened its doors at the original site of Stax Records, which had been a vacant, overgrown lot for more than a decade with a single State of Tennessee historic marker. Thursday, May 2, 2013, Stax celebrated their 10th anniversary with local and state officials declaring 2013 the "Year of Stax."
