October 08 - American Vinyl

Due for release from Sony Legacy on November 29, 2019 is the Black Friday Record Store Day release "American Sound Sessions 1969". This release is limited to 4000 copies worldwide. 

1969 was a pivotal year for Elvis Presley. Fresh from the success of the ’68 Comeback Special, a revitalized Elvis headed to American Sound Studios with producer Chips Moman and a crack group of local session musicians.
