Muze PNote ELVIS IS BACK is a reissue of the first full-length record that Elvis Presley recorded after returning from his famous two-year stint in the U.S. Army. The disc includes a handful of tracks not included on the original, all of which seem just as strong as those that made it onto the vinyl release.
Muze PNote The album marks something of a crossroads in The King's career. Whereas such tracks as "Stuck on You" and "Make Me Know It" are of a piece with the kind of pelvis-grinding, R&B-informed tracks that made Elvis a star in the mid-to-late '50s, a cut like "Fame and Fortune" sees the beginnings of a move more toward smoky-voiced balladeering. The song is noteworthy for its occasionally jarring swings of vocal pitch-a technique for which Elvis would later be caricaturized. ELVIS IS BACK also brought forth Elvis' indispensable interpretation of "Are You Lonesome Tonight," a track that makes it difficult for even Elvis' most ardent detractors to question the sincerity of his delivery.
