Brief History :

Elvis Country (I'm 10,000 Years Old) is the thirty-seventh studio album by Elvis Presley, released on RCA Records (LSP 4460 in January 1971). Recorded at RCA Studio B in Nashville, it reached #12 on the Billboard 200. It was certified Gold on 12/1/1977 by the RIAA. It peaked at #6 in the United Kingdom, selling over one million copies worldwide.

The lead single for the album, "I Really Don't Want to Know" b/w "There Goes My Everything" was released on December 8, 1970 and peaked at #21 on the Billboard Hot 100.

The bulk of the album came from five days of recording sessions in June 1970 which yielded 35 usable tracks. Presley performed every track "live", recording his vocal part in the same take as the band as was standard practice for him. Eight tracks from the session were released two months earlier in November 1970 on the That's the Way It Is album. During the sessions, Presley and producer Felton Jarvis realized they had several country songs in hand, and decided to record several more to create a full album of country material. Needing two more satisfactory tracks, Elvis returned to the same studio in September where he recorded "Snowbird" and a manic, one-take version of "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin On."

Along with his second LP, Elvis' Christmas Album, Elvis Is Back!, and From Elvis in Memphis, "Elvis Country" stands as one of Presley's cohesive musical works - the closest he came to concept albums, a mere handful from his large catalogue.

Nearly every style of country music is represented; bluegrass, honky tonk, Western swing, rockabilly, countrypolitan, and even the then-nascent "outlaw" movement. Snippets of the song "I Was Born About Ten Thousand Years Ago" act as a bridge between each track to enhance the sense of continuity.

After this album, Presley would return to his usual practice of recording a seemingly random batch of songs on each trip to the recording studio, letting his producer assemble them into albums.
