Elvis Presley releases From Elvis Presley Boulevard, Memphis, Tennessee
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 studios at a studio set up in Presley's mansion, Graceland, not in front of an audience. It was his fourth album to reach #1 on the Billboard country music album sales chart within the last four years.
"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.)
