The new soundtrack album, cut at Radio Recorders in Hollywood just months before the regenerative Nashville sessions, was as notable for its upbeat attitude as for its songs. For the first time in a long time Elvis seemed actively engaged by the prospect of making music for a movie, and it translated into the playing of the usual complement of top Nashville and L.A. session men. A not-inconsiderable bonus was two tracks taken from the May Nashville sessions, with a third coming from a follow-up session in June. Each stood out in a different way: there was a raucous, down-and-dirty version of the Clovers’ “Down In The Alley”; the beautifully rendered Hawaiian classic, “I’ll Remember You”; and, in a show of genuine eclecticism that offered a hint of things to come, a tender interpretation of Bob Dylan’s “Tomorrow Is A Long Time,” which Elvis had picked up from an Odetta album. His new LP sold well over 300,000 copies, a significant improvement over the last two soundtracks.

Had Elvis Presley done nothing else but record “That’s Alright, Mama,” his place in pop music history would be secure. With his first regional hit, Presley fused rhythm and blues with country, put a handsome white face out front for audiences to see, and in so doing legitimized beat music for white audiences. It is no understatement to call Presley the chief catalyst of the rock-and-roll era. During the 1950s, Presley’s records spent a collective 53 weeks in the number one chart position. Only the Beatles can boast similar sales success.

Groundbreaking new Elvis album features 14 original performances of gospel songs with newly-recorded instrumentation and backing vocals featuring legendary Presley alumnae including Darlene Love, Cissy Houston, The Imperials and The Stamps. “Since I was two years old”, Elvis Presley once said, “all I knew was gospel music. It became such a part of my life, it was as natural as dancing. A way to escape my problems, and my way of release.” It was gospel music that most ferociously stoked his musical passions, even as his unique synthesis of country, popular and rhythm and blues styles made him an idol to millions around the world.

Recorded: July 21–24, 1973, Stax Studios, Memphis; September 22–23, 1973, Elvis Presley’s Residence, Palm Springs, California

Raised on Rock / For Ol’ Times Sake is a studio album by American singer and musician Elvis Presley released in 1973. Along with the album Elvis, it was released after the massive success of Aloha From Hawaii (although the entire Elvis album contained material recorded before the Aloha show). The album, which sold over one million copies worldwide, was recorded at Stax Studios in Memphis, Tennessee in July 1973 and at Presley’s home in Palm Springs, California in September 1973. Two songs from these sessions would be retained for release on the Good Times album the following spring. The initial vocal tracks were recorded in July 1973. “Raised on Rock” backed by “For Ol’ Times Sake” was the only single released from the album, reaching #41 on the Billboard chart and #42 on the Country chart in September 1973.
The album was one of the few that failed to chart in the United Kingdom, but the single “Raised on Rock / For Ol’ Times Sake” did enter the British charts. Some of the songs are well known covers like “Are You Sincere” which had been around for many years, but some new songs like the lead off single were written for Presley, or written by writers he had previously recorded, such as Mark James. The title single, “Raised on Rock,” has been noted by historians such as Roy Carr and Mick Farren in Elvis: The Illustrated Record as odd lyrically, as Presley sings in first person about being a child and discovering rock and roll through records such as “Johnny B. Goode” when Presley was a contemporary of the artists he cites.

On Stage is an Elvis Presley live album mostly recorded between February 17 and 19, 1970 at the International Hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada, and released on RCA Records LSP-4362. It was an immediate follow up to From Memphis to Vegas/From Vegas to Memphis, which also featured live recordings. Unlike the previous release, however, this album focused on songs that were not, at the time, associated with Elvis. This album was released in June 1970 and reached number 13 on both the Billboard 200 and country music charts. It was certified Gold on February 23, 1971, and Platinum on July 15, 1999, by the Recording Industry Association of America.
It features the worldwide number one single “The Wonder of You”, which topped both the United States Adult Contemporary tracks chart and the British music chart. Other selections include “See See Rider”, “Yesterday”, Tony Joe White’s “Polk Salad Annie”, Del Shannon’s “Runaway”, and a version of “Let It Be Me”. “See See Rider” would go on to become Elvis’ frequent introductory number at his concerts up to his last performance at the (now defunct) Market Square Arena in Indianapolis Indiana on June 26, 1977, while “Polk Salad Annie” also became a regular part of his repertoire. The album is notable for not showing Elvis’ name anywhere on the cover.
