Reissued by Friday Music in all its true stereophonic hi-fi glory, this is an audiophile dream release for Elvis fans everywhere.

In July 1973, Elvis returned to Memphis, this time to the source of Southern soul, Stax Studios. Apparently, the very idea of working with Elvis was intimidating and the Stax musicians couldn't overcome their awe, so Elvis had to leave the building. In his absence, the rhythm tracks were laid down. He then returned to add his vocals, a practice only used during the last few years of the soundtracks, when he was too bored to show up and work.

From all of this plus a December session at Stax with some Nashville cats, and a session at Elvis' Palm Springs home, RCA had 30 new Elvis songs, enough quality material for two strong albums of 12 tracks each. Instead, RCA chose to release the material as three albums of a mere 10 tracks each. Raised on Rock, Good Times, and Promised Land all have something to offer, but the impact of the stronger tunes is diluted.
