Tonight on the Thursday Night Special, it’s a one-off radio special with Elvis Presley, live at Stax Studios.
In 1973, Elvis Presley had every right to be excited for the future. He had signed a new recording contract, formed his own publishing company and finally controlled his business. With a pile of new songs, Elvis decided to record at the legendary Stax Studios in Memphis–home to some of the brightest soul artists of the time. In this one-hour special, you’ll hear highlights from those sessions and talk with the people who were in the room.
