After a decade of putting Hollywood glitz above his Memphis roots, Elvis Presley staged a musical comeback on TV in 1968 and then returned home for two extraordinary albums: From Elvis in Memphis and Back in Memphis. The first was a classic, and the second wasn't so shabby. Legacy compiles all of his 1969 Memphis recordings here, including hits "In the Ghetto" and "Suspicious Minds" (his last Number One single before his 1977 death). What makes these sessions remarkable: the newfound maturity and soulfulness in Elvis' vocals, and producer Chips Moman's warm, distinctly Southern musical backing.
