New Graceland Blog: Elvis' American Sound

January 1969. Elvis was back in the spotlight following the smashing success of the ’68 Special, which aired in December. He was ready to record new music – something he normally did in Nashville or Hollywood. This time, however, Elvis decided to try a studio about 10 miles north of Graceland. It would be the first time he recorded in Memphis since his Sun Studio days.

Elvis' legendary recording sessions at American Sound Studio in Memphis took place 50 years ago, in January and February 1969. Read more about these sessions and see photos taken at the studio on the new Graceland Blog.
