Elvis Presley – Honky Tonk At Stax

Elvis Presley, Honky Tonk At Stax, 1973 Elvis Presley – Honky Tonk At Stax (1973) – a very interesting bootleg, a collection of rehearsal recordings of Elvis with Stax, located in Memphis. Great sound, great country-soul record. Very bright and life-affirming.

Some of the songs are a little pop, but overall the sound is very even Centre way. I think this is largely the merit of the great guitarist James Burton (recall that to Elvis he played Ricky).

In 1975, Elvis released the album Promised Land, timed to coincide with his 40th anniversary, containing songs recorded at the Stax studios in December 1973 rd.

The title song “Promised Land” (hit 65th year by Chuck berry) was released as a single and reached the 14th line of the hit parade Billboard; 2nd side of the single “It’s Midnight” took 9th place in the top country charts. The album took the 1st place in Top Country LP Billboard. Outtake, and takes of songs from the album Promised Land, and is presented on butler Honky Tonk At Stax in 1973.

A bit about Records. It’s mainly the spirit. Stax – a tag that created well-known by designers such as for instance Rufus Thomas Mike Otis Redding Booker T and found. And also the and spirit superstar Hayes. Sibling and sibling Rick Stewart within the storage exposed in 1957 the Business and was initially named Satellite Documents. To 1959, labels were currently documenting some achievement. The Business relocated about the part of ELIZABETH into the areas of the aged theater. McLemore in Memphis. Quickly, the tag was renamed Stax, (SAINT from Stewart and AX from Axton) to prevent issues with additional Satellite Documents. Stax rapidly became recognized because of its trademark home audio.

There was of the Business a unique function additionally the Horns. Horns could be noticed on several tunes beginning with the 60s to the evening that was present, they used Neil and Elvis young, many more and Jack Alicia Tips.

The Stax’s initial audio was because of another reality. the audience ground was at a position, and also the Business was previously a theater, and uncommon acoustics created this form room, though workers Stax in the beginning, this did not actually understand.

Even though that excellent spirit audio was recorded by the Studio the company started initially to fall. Ultimately, the Business went broke, and its own building that was renowned was destroyed in 1989. Within the 2000s several fanatics introduced the development of Museum and Music School of National Soul and also the Stax tag was reopened.

Unfortunately of the 3 disc bootleg I managed to find only CD3 (the entire track list of the collection). But there is also a collection of Unedited Masters Stax 1973, which I also suggest you download and evaluate. Listen to the song My Boy, just be clear where you take the music and arrangements of pop producers.
