Brief History :
From Elvis Presley Boulevard, Memphis, Tennessee is an album by Elvis Presley, released in 1976 on RCA Records. It is often mistaken that this is a concert recording as the album states the songs were "recorded live". While this is true, the songs were recorded live in the recording studio at a studio set up in Presley's mansion, Graceland, not in front of an audience. Two songs recorded during the session would be released the following year on his final album, Moody Blue, Moody Blue and She Thinks I Still Care. From Elvis Presley Boulevard, Memphis, Tennessee was the King's fourth album to reach #1 on the Billboard country music album sales chart.
"Hurt" was a top 10 hit on both the country and adult contemporary charts, while "For the Heart" stalled at #45 on the country charts. The latter did make the pop top 30. (Both songs would again find success on the country charts in the '80s--"For the Heart" became the first single for the Judds in 1983, while Juice Newton took her version of "Hurt" to #1 in 1986.)
In the CD format, the tracks of From Elvis Presley Boulevard, Memphis, Tennessee were added to Moody Blue in 2000 to create an expanded 19-track CD of the latter title. It was certified Gold on 10/7/1977 by the RIAA.
