    Best new concept on the mainstream label since "Young Man With The Big Beat"!!!

    I've always believed that "A Boy From Tupelo" should have been released on the mainstream label, not in FTd, it was the perfect follow up to "Young Man...", and the Sun material always appeals to people outside the hardcore Elvis fans.

    Anyhow, this Stax box set, totally goes back on that path! Thumbs up Ernst!!!!

    I've already got most of these albums separately, don't know if I'll buy the set, I'd have to weigh that up on the release date.

    I also have the original vinyl albums, but there are quite a few outtakes I do not so I may buy it.

    Nice! I know there's loads of out-takes I don't have either, so I'm 50/50 at the moment. Come release date I may be singing another song, we'll see. Give your vinyl a spin.

    Still scratching my head as to why this 3-disc set is being released when there's much better material to pick form throughout his career.

    It's just a different way of repackaging Elvis' catalog without doing another gospel, love songs, greatest hits, Christmas etc. and to highlight Elvis' work from one of his lesser known sessions.

    I have been wanting Elvis' label to use more of his lesser known songs for compilations for a long time.

    This is no different than Sony, BMG or RCA compiling all of Elvis' 1969 American studio work on CD several years ago.

    I agree.
    Stax is a very historic hit making studio in Memphis-Elvis is from Memphis-and he recorded there.
    His Stax work is not as well known-and Stax does not feel the necessity to highlight his work in that studio (understandable since it was a soul studio with many top soul artists having recorded there)
    so highlighting the music from the Stax sessions makes sense- it was different from Elvis at the time and it was a move away from his "norm" that alone is significant.
    I liked the Stax music, liked the funkiness and slightly different approach-since its not the norm-perhaps some individuals who like a more soulful sound will pick it up.
    Its a period in Elvis musical career that is just not that well known.
    Work in Progress!

    ELVIS AT STAX: DELUXE EDITION CHRONICLES 40th ANNIVERSARY OF HISTORIC HOMETOWN STUDIO SESSIONS OF JULY AND DECEMBER 1973
    DELUXE 3-CD BOX SET MARKS FIRST GATHERING OF 28 MASTERS AND 27 OUTTAKES IN ONE COMPREHENSIVE PACKAGE

    Master recordings at Stax Studios in Memphis include 1973-1975 RCA single sides: Mark James’ “Raised On Rock,” Tony Joe White’s “I’ve Got A Thing About You Baby,” Chuck Berry’s “Promised Land,” Larry Gatlin’s “Help Me,” plus Dennis Linde's "I Got A Feelin' In My Body," Danny O’Keefe’s “Good Time Charlie’s Got The Blues,” Waylon Jennings’ “You Asked Me To,”and more
    Available everywhere through RCA/Legacy on August 6, 2013
    The last major studio sessions in the career of Elvis Presley have finally been gathered together for the first time in one comprehensive package as ELVIS AT STAX: DELUXE EDITION. The deluxe 3-CD box set, a 40th anniversary chronicle of a dozen nights that Presley spent at Stax Recording Studios in his hometown of Memphis in July and December 1973, will be available everywhere August 6, 2013 through RCA/Legacy, a division of SONY MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT. The box set arrives in stores ten days before the anniversary of Presley's death on August 16, 1977.

    Released simultaneously will be a single CD of highlights from the box set simply titled ELVIS AT STAX, and a 180-gram, double-vinyl LP.

    ELVIS AT STAX: DELUXE EDITION bristles with energy and dynamism. The proof is in the six consecutive singles that the Stax sessions produced, all of which skirted the Top 40 from 1973 to 1975. In effect, they rivaled some of the hottest streaks that Presley had charted a decade earlier. The Stax singles still resonate today:
    •“Raised On Rock” b/w “For Ol’ Time Sake” (Hot 100 #41, country #42);
    •“I’ve Got A Thing About You Baby” b/w “Take Good Care Of Her” (Hot 100 #39, country #4);
    •“Promised Land” b/w “It’s Midnight” (Hot 100 #14, country #9);
    •“If You Talk In Your Sleep” b/w “Help Me” (Hot 100 #17, country #6);
    •“My Boy” b/w “Thinking About You” (Hot 100 #20, country #14); and
    •“Mr. Songman” (B-side of “T-R-O-U-B-L-E,” Hot 100 #35, country #11).
    "I Got A Feelin' In My Body" (recorded at Stax, catalog RCA PB-11679), was reissued as a posthumous single by RCA Records in 1979.

    The historical significance of Presley’s work at Stax is appreciated by such music scholars as Peter Guralnick, the award-winning author of Last Train to Memphis: The Rise of Elvis Presley (1994) and Careless Love: The Unmaking of Elvis Presley (1999); and producer Ernst Mikael Jørgensen, respected director of RCA’s Presley catalog for over two decades, and author of the critical research guide, Elvis Presley: A Life In Music (St. Martin’s Press, 1998).

    Jørgensen has long been concerned with doing justice to the Stax sessions, which were never acknowledged by the artist's record label RCA as a unified whole. Instead, as with most of Presley's studio work in his second decade as a recording artist, the tracks were scattered onto LPs and intermingled with material recorded in Nashville and Hollywood. The bulk of the Stax cuts showed up on Raised On Rock/For Ol’ Times Sake (1973), Good Times (1974), and Promised Land (1975). For ELVIS AT STAX, many of the outtakes originated on the CD-era reissues of those three albums on Jørgensen’s and co-director Roger Semon's own label, Follow That Dream (FTD) Records. ELVIS AT STAX was produced by Jørgensen, Semon, and Rob Santos of Legacy A&R.

    Taking up the cause for ELVIS AT STAX is another scholar and aficionado of the artist, award-winning resident Memphis journalist Robert Gordon, who has written an in-depth, day-by-day (i.e. night-by-night) liner notes essay for the box set. Previously, Gordon and his wife Tara McAdams (author of The Elvis Handbook, 2004) co-wrote the liner notes essay for RCA/Legacy's From Elvis In Memphis: Legacy Edition (2009). In addition to major biographies of Muddy Waters and Jerry Lee Lewis, Gordon is the author of two important Elvis Presley studies, The King on the Road: Elvis Live on Tour 1954 to 1977 (St. Martin’s, 1996) and The Elvis Treasures (Random House, 2002). Gordon has also written two books on the Memphis music scene, the acclaimed It Came from Memphis (Faber & Faber, 1995, foreword penned by Peter Guralnick) and the upcoming Respect Yourself: Stax Records and the Soul Explosion (Bloomsbury USA, set for publication in November 2013).

    Etched in music history, 1973 was a crucial watershed year for Presley, in the wake of his return to extended concert touring in 1972, after 12 years away from the stage and 27 movies in Hollywood. His New York City concert debut was emblematic of an exciting new chapter in his career. It was chronicled last year on the RCA/Legacy deluxe 2-CD+DVD box set, Prince From Another Planet: Elvis As Recorded Live At Madison Square Garden / 40th Anniversary Edition, which captured an afternoon and an evening concert staged on June 10, 1972. His manager, Colonel Tom Parker, sought a world-class mega-event to underscore the touring, which led to the one-hour global satellite broadcast from the Honolulu International Center Arena on January 14, 1973, viewed by over one billion people around the world. That, too, was recently chronicled on the RCA/Legacy double-disc set issued this past March, Aloha From Hawaii: Legacy Edition.

    The highs of 1972-’73 led Presley and Colonel Parker to accept RCA’s $5.4 million offer for an outright transfer of Presley's complete back catalog. He wanted a new start, new control, and a new publishing company. But the RCA deal also called for his return to the studio and a promise for him to deliver 24 new masters, i.e. two new singles (four songs), a new pop LP (ten songs), and a new gospel LP (ten songs).

    Four years earlier, in 1969, Presley had made his Memphis recording return (after a 13-year absence) at Chips Moman’s American Studios. These triumphantly successful sessions had yielded a year-long string of ‘comeback’ hit singles: “In the Ghetto” (#3), “Suspicious Minds” (#1), “Don’t Cry Daddy” (#6), and “Kentucky Rain” (#16), the last such string of major consecutive hits in his life. But by 1973, American had closed up shop, and most of its musicians had relocated to Nashville. However, Stax Studios, the launching pad of such greats as Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, Sam & Dave, Booker T. and The MGs, and Isaac Hayes was still thriving at its original 926 E. McLemore Avenue space. In fact, Isaac Hayes relinquished his studio time to accommodate Presley. Ironically, less than two years later in 1975, the Stax offices would also be closed.

    Presley spent 12 days at Stax in 1973 (July 21-25 and December 10-16), and the rollercoaster ride of those sessions is meticulously detailed in Gordon’s liner notes. ELVIS AT STAX neatly compartmentalizes the results:
    •Disc 1: The R&B and Country Sessions – The Outtakes: 17 tracks
    •Disc 2: Part 1 – The Pop Sessions – The Outtakes: 10 tracks
    •Disc 2: Part 2 – The July 1973 Masters: four single sides and six album tracks, and
    •Disc 3: The December 1973 Masters: seven single sides and 11 album tracks.

    I also love to listen to vinyl disc.
    Especially those published during his lifetime Elvis. When his heart was still beating ..

    So its official? that's the definitive cover for this one?

    If that's so I love it! Bling Bling! Its about time the mainstream label came up with something radically away from the usual Elvis Presley product. Thumbs Up for that! Again, best thing they done since Youn Man With The Big Beat!

    It looks like a slipcase. Look at the shadows of the picture. It is the cover of the deluxe release.
