Elvis Is Back!/Something for Everybody [Legacy Edition]

In the mold of recent 2-CD Legacy Editions of the classic albums From Elvis In Memphis and On Stage, Elvis Is Back (Legacy Edition) is the definitive version of one of Elvis’s most essential albums, expanded to include another historically significant album from the time period and the hit singles associated with both albums.

Elvis Is Back is possibly the best album Elvis ever recorded. During his two years in the army, Elvis spent what spare time he had expanding his vocal range and improving his technique. Combined with a challenging and diverse repertoire, a new band of Nashville session aces, and improved three-track recording technology, it was an almost completely new Elvis who emerged in April of 1960.

Recorded over just two nights, the Elvis Is Back sessions produced not only the twelve album tracks but also six tracks for single release, including three #1 singles: all-time classics “It’s Now Or Never,” “Are You Lonesome Tonight?” and “Stuck On You.” While the follow-up album Something For Everybody has not historically received the same reverence, Elvis’s voice on that LP may have been even better than it was the year before -- possibly the best of his career.

These recordings burst with an impact that is immediate -- no surprise, considering the album was recorded in only one night. The bonus singles, which include the #1 hits “(Marie’s The Name) His Latest Flame” and “Good Luck Charm” as well as the classic “Little Sister,” were also cut in just two additional sessions.
