Press announcement:
Elvis’ 1970 Country album was a great idea, but it’s a shame that with Elvis’ interest in contemporary folk music he didn’t release a “Folk” themed album. For the May 1971 session Elvis had even used folk group The Nashville Edition as backing singers and selected some interesting songs to record.

However, from a marketing perspective we can hardly see an LP called Elvis Folk appealing to his fans in 1971, and let’s face it Elvis wasn’t recording what the general public would consider Folk. Instead the sound was more of a spontaneous “unplugged acoustic” feel as opposed to the more recent big ballads or soulful stew of the Memphis sessions. But still… some call it folk.

Now for the very first time we finally have an Elvis ‘Folk’ album. Housed in a stunning 3-panel digipack, this is a top notch Elvis CD release.
