"Elvis at Stax" Review Featured on Washington Post and Huffington Post

August 05, 2013


Elvis' legendary recordings during the months of July and December of 1973 make up a new compilation celebrating the 40th anniversary his days at Stax Records. With the highly-anticipated release, national publications are taking an in-depth look at the sound that came from the Stax sessions.

"Forty years after Presley’s Stax sessions, RCA Legacy is releasing the three-CD box set “Elvis at Stax: Deluxe Edition” on Tuesday. It’s the first time Presley’s songs recorded at Stax are together in the same release, which also includes outtakes and rare photos," writes the Associated Press.

Publications such as the WashingtonPost.com and HuffingtonPost.com featured a recent review by The Associated Press, describing the latest "Elvis at Stax" release as a reflection of "the true spontaneity and musicianship of Elvis’ sessions.” The article highlights the country, R&B and pop songs released in three separate albums - all originating from the same studio where Otis Redding, Isaac Hayes and many other musical greats recorded.

In conjunction with the much-anticipated August 6th release, RCA/Legacy Recordings is hosting a very special listening party at the Stax Museum of American Soul Music on Tuesday, August 11, at 4:00 p.m. During this exclusive Elvis Week event, fans will have an opportunity to stand in the very same spot where Elvis recorded the music they are hearing, in addition to witnessing stories and details behind the music and recording sessions from representatives of Sony and special guest Norbert Putnam.
