The second part of Gurdip & Justin's overview of Elvis' 1973 recording sessions, as voted upon by the TCBCast Patreon community. This week's episode takes a look at the December 1973 recording sessions at Stax Studios in Memphis following Elvis' hospitalization in the fall of 1973, as well as touching on the subsequent album releases, Good Times and Promised Land, amid RCA's spat of Elvis releases throughout 1974-1975 which led to oversaturation in the market.
For Song of the Week, TCBCast patrons voted and chose "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" from 1972 for Gurdip to review, including the less well-known attempted duet versions, while Justin drops another dime in for "Mr. Songman," the country weeper Elvis recorded at the December Stax sessions.
This episode included over 6 minutes of additional bonus discussion of us discussing preparations prep for our tentative guest appearance on the Hall of Songs Podcast, where we'll attempt to make the case for Elvis to a non-fan.
