FROM ELVIS IN MEMPHIS takes your listeners inside these recording sessions, which many believe to be His finest recordings since leaving Sun Records. Over a two-week span in early 1969, producer Chips Moman and his “Memphis Boys” studio band backed Elvis on a mix of pop, country and R&B tunes unlike any other Elvis Presley recordings. These highly productive sessions produced the original FROM ELVIS IN MEMPHIS album, as well as the singles “Suspicious Minds,” “In the Ghetto” and “Kentucky Rain” – three of Elvis’ three most played songs on radio stations today. Interview subjects include producer Chips Moman and a few of the musicians from these recordings — Reggie Young, Bobby Wood, Bobby Emmons, Donna Jean Godchaux, and Gene Chrisman.
