Elvis Aaron Presley was born during The Great Depression into a poor family in Mississippi. They moved to Memphis during the early fifties, and as a struggling young truck driver, he cut some demos at Sun Studios as a gift for his beloved mother Gladys. These initial songs, of which he had only paid a few dollars to record, would become the catalyst that would kick-start the beginnings of a soon to be worldwide superstar unlike the world has ever known.
The folks at RCA Victor knew that this young fellow named Elvis was destined for superstardom. They quickly bought out his contract and signed the legend to a long term deal, forever etching The King Of Rock And Roll trademark to his name.
In 1970 after a plethora of chart topping albums and a bevy of number one singles, Elvis Presley continued to build his marquee value even further while starring in a staggering amount of feature motion pictures. More incredible fame followed as the Thats The Way It Is movie starring Elvis Presley became another box office hit for the King. The 1970s epic documentary captured Elviss first concert tour in over a decade, as the brilliant soundtrack album recorded live in Las Vegas and in RCA Studios, Nashville, was also a blockbuster as it rose to the upper rungs of the album charts, making this his 40th hit album in a row! Both the Thats The Way It Is movie and soundtrack LP truly proved once again that his career was unlike any other in music history.
Filled with more winners than in a Las Vegas casino, Thats The Way It Is takes off with several smashes in a row, including the classic "I Just Cant Help Believin" which became a UK smash, plus the definitive hit single version of "You Dont Have to Say You Love Me" plus an LP live only version of the killer rocker "Patch It Up" featuring James Burtons trail blazing guitar work.
More soundtrack treasures follow with the beautiful ballads "Ive Lost You" and "Mary in the Morning". The album also features his stellar rendition of "Youve Lost That Lovin Feelin" featuring the vocals of The Sweet Inspirations as well as the superlative Simon & Garfunkel interpretation of "Bridge Over Troubled Water". In total, the album showcases 12 very important Elvis Presley recordings which have truly gone on to become international classics.
