Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 11/11/93, p.76
5 Stars - Classic - "...FROM NASHVILLE TO MEMPHIS reveals that reclaiming [his] roots meant Elvis' artistic resurrection....[it] belies any notion that only the '50s Elvis was vital....[Elvis] remains the finest singer rock & roll has ever produced..."
Melody Maker - 10/23/93, p.36
"...[FROM NASHVILLE TO MEMPHIS] is the sound of Presley calming down, recognizing his talents, acknowledging the craft of the song rather than merely the lascivious bluster..."
NME (Magazine) - 10/2/93, p.32
7 - Very Good - "...These are the most majestic performances of his career, songs that stretched all his resources, the consummate artist of his era re-identifying with the very land he once sprung from like a thunderbolt...."

Digitally Remastered by Dick Baxter (BMG Recording Studios, New York).
Unlike its predecessor THE COMPLETE 50'S MASTERS, the '60s box set FROM NASHVILLE TO MEMPHIS does not include all of Elvis Presley's recordings from a single decade. To whittle the set down to a manageable five discs, RCA reissued Presley's movie soundtracks and gospel recordings separately, focusing this set instead on Elvis' secular single and album releases. The set starts promisingly with Presley's brilliant first post-Army recordings, originally released on the album ELVIS IS BACK! The middle discs in the set, however, demonstrate that at some point in the early Sixties Elvis stopped receiving publishers' best material.
The singing is still great, but too many of the songs are as mediocre as Presley's soundtracks of the period. Fortunately, the story told by FROM NASHVILLE TO MEMPHIS has a happy ending, as the set wraps up with the King's triumphant American Studio recordings, which include the hits "In the Ghetto" and "Suspicious Minds." Even Presley's lean years yielded their share of great recordings, making FROM NASHVILLE TO MEMPHIS an essential addition to any serious music fan's collection.
