RCA/Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, will release Elvis: Back In Nashville, the definitive presentation of Presley’s May-June 1971 Nashville studio sessions (his last in Nashville), on Friday, November 12.
Elvis: Back In Nashville will be available as a 4CD/digital collection featuring 82 pristine original recordings capturing Elvis and his musicians live-in-the-studio laying down central tracks and performances intended for later release. These revelatory sessions chronicle the last time Elvis would record in Nashville. Some of Elvis’ 1971 Nashville studio recordings appeared, with subsequent orchestral and vocal overdubs, on the seasonal collection Elvis Sings the Wonderful World of Christmas (1971), the Grammy-winning gospel album He Touched Me (1972), Elvis Now (1972) and 1973’s Elvis.
Like its predecessor, From Elvis In Nashville (released November 2020), Elvis: Back In Nashville is designed to showcase Elvis Presley and his core band as they sounded during the actual sessions without orchestral overdubs and vocal accompaniment. A key difference between Elvis’ 1970 and 1971 Nashville sessions is that many of the 1971 recordings included backing singers; therefore, Elvis: Back In Nashville offers a variety of song performances both with and without vocal augmentation.
Graceland will be offering their exclusive 2LP 12″ color vinyl collectors pressing of Elvis: Back In Nashville. A 2LP 12″ vinyl version of the album will also be available.
Elvis: Back In Nashville, and the Graceland 2LP 12″ vinyl edition are available for pre-order HERE.
