And he'd just come off of the NBC television special which, although a lot of work, had led him to the realization that he could be as exciting and vital a performer in as he'd been a dozen years before. And for what was practically the last time, the singer cut his manager, Tom Parker , out of the equation, turning himself over to producer Chips Moman. The result was one of the greatest white soul albums and one of the greatest soul albums ever cut, with brief but considerable forays into country, pop, and blues as well.
Presley sounds rejuvenated artistically throughout the dozen cuts off the original album, and he's supported by the best playing and backup singing of his entire recording history.
