What if Elvis came home to record one more album? What would it look like? Recorded at historic Ardent Studios, in Memphis, with the vocals of Pete Storm…this is “Memphis Coming Back Home”
Mac Davis was there in Memphis, that January 1969 when Elvis picked three songs from a tape that had 19 of Mac’s songs on it. Elvis picked “In the Ghetto”, “Don’t Cry Daddy”, and “Poor Man’s Gold”. Chips Moman, Elvis’s producer, thought they might have had all the sides they needed then and that’s why “Poor Man’s Gold” wasn’t finished. As far as I can tell, “Poor Man’s Gold” is the only song, from those historic sessions, never released by Elvis. Not only never released, but seems to have been lost. No one seems to have known this. With more of a country feel, Mac released it himself on his “Stop and Smell the Roses” album Columbia 1974.
