Elvis in Nashville

Postby Walk In My Shadow » 04 Nov 2020, 14:34

One of my hidden pleasures is middle period Elvis. Therefore I'm looking forward to November 20 when the four disc From Elvis in Nashville will be released. Those 1970 sessions were originally divided over three albums at the time, augmented with strings, choirs, etc.

The new release should have the original recordings without all the whistles and bells.

I like bells and whistles.

Actually, the thought of Elvis backed by people playing bells and whistles does make me smile. Especially if they're slide whistles.

Yep, Elvis wanted all the strings and choirs, etc. It was the way a lot of country music was recorded at the time. Don't know why people always want to mess with the original recordings.

You're right, Matt - though the counterpoint is that just because Elvis wanted them doesn't mean it won't be cool to hear what the songs sound like without them. (Especially the singers.)

Agreed, that Nashville Sound can fuck off. It ruined way more music than it helped.

Looking forward to this set. The sound quality should be amazing.

Because Elvis had terrible taste and isn’t to be trusted with these decisions.

Indeed. The basic band he used was just about the best musicians available. Just to hear Elvis and the band would be a real treat.

Possibly the PROG goons fave cowbell tracks (possibly)
