FROM ELVIS IN NASHVILLE

August 7, 2020

In June 1970 Elvis Presley entered Nashville’s legendary RCA Studio B for a marathon five day recording session that would provide the backbone of three of his most successful studio albums of the decade.

On November 20th, these sessions will be collected in a 4CD set and digital collection, ‘From Elvis In Nashville’. Pre-order now.

FROM ELVIS IN NASHVILLE

Drawing on the original masters, the 4CD set presents studio tracks from the 1970 marathon sessions in pristine audio, newly mixed by acclaimed engineer Matt Ross-Spring (John Prine, Jason Isbell) without the added overdubs or orchestration appearing on earlier releases.

From Elvis In Nashville will be available in a 4CD boxed edition including two bonus discs of rare and/or unreleased outtakes from the 1970 sessions (also available digitally). A highlights package will be available in a 2LP 12″ vinyl pressing.
