Elvis: Back In Nashville, the definitive presentation of Presley’s final Nashville studio sessions in 1971, is being released on Nov. 12 by RCA/Legacy Recordings to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the legendary Nashville sessions. “I’m Leavin’,” the first track from Elvis: Back In Nashville, is available now.
The four CD/digital collection features 82 pristine original recordings capturing Elvis and his musicians live in the studio laying down central tracks and performances intended for later release.
Disc One features 18 tracks and includes The Country/Folk Sides, The Piano Recordings, and The Pop Sides while Disc Two features 25 tracks divided between The Religious Sides and The Christmas Sides. Disc Three features 19 tracks and picks up on the country pop repertoire of Disc One, adding some rock ‘n’ roll with a variety of cuts including impromptu performances of “Johnny B. Goode” and “Lady Madonna,” an epic take on Bob Dylan’s “Don’t Think Twice, (It’s Alright)”, fresh interpretations of “Help Me Make It Through The Night,” “Early Morning Rain” and more. Finally, Disc Four features 20 tracks and includes The Religious Outtakes and The Christmas Outtakes.
