Comment:

These tunes transport Elvis out of his leather-clad, engine-revving teen idol years into the emotionally complex adulthood that triggered his second wave of stardom. As a nylon-string, flamenco-style guitar riffs over a downy-soft string arrangement, Elvis approaches "Memories" with the wistful intimacy of an old scrapbook page being turned. In "Loving You" he couples the after-hours, "set 'em up, Joe" balladry of Frank Sinatra with a doo-wop backing chorus while declaring his everlasting fidelity, even if he's "seen with someone new." (How's [i]that[/i] work?) And gospel flowed through Elvis' repertoire like the healing waters of the river Jordan; his stately version of "How Great Thou Art" drinks deeply from the '50s country/spiritual wellsprings of Tennessee Ernie Ford and Jim Reeves.
