On June 4, 1970, Elvis travelled to RCA's Nashville studio and recorded 34 songs in five days. The repertoire would be spread over four releases; "That's The Way lt In", "Elvis Now", "Love Letters From Elvis" & "Elvis Country". This was a great time for Elvis.

The live comeback in Las Vegas had been critically acclaimed and the success of the American Recording Studio sessions had put him firmly back on the charts. The now legendary recording of "Suspicious Minds" reached #1 on November 1, 1969, and two albums; "From Elvis In Memphis" and "From Memphis To Vegas" had charted at 13 and 12 respectively.

The songs recorded at the June session consisted mainly of country standards and ballads. lt didn't take long for someone to realise a country album would be a sensible proposition!

Preceded by the single "I Really Don't Want To Know"/"There Goes My Everything", the "Elvis Country" album was released in January 1971. Both were certifies gold and reached #21 and #12 on their respective charts. Vocally, Elvis was in superb form and great ballads like "Make The World Go Away" and "Funny How Time Slips Away" were complimented with the uptempo "Faded Love" and "I Washed My Hands In Muddy Water".

This became Elvis' first concept album as the song "I Was Born About Ten Thousand Years Ago" was segued between every track! lt was issued in it's entirety on "Elvis Now" in 1972. (from the release notes)
