Double vinyl LP pressing. By 1976, Elvis Presley's association with RCA Records had reached it's 20-year mark. While this tenure resulted in some of the most important records in rock and roll history, Presley - now 40 years old and having spent much of his time working in recording studios - was anxious for a change and eager for a less formal recording experience. Seeking alternatives to maintain Elvis' renewed showings on the country and adult contemporary charts, the decision was made to convert the "Jungle Room" a room in Elvis' Graceland estate, so named for it's exotic d├ęcor into an informal studio. With the help of RCA's mobile recording truck and longtime producer Felton Jarvis at the helm, Presley would sporadically record in the "Jungle Room" throughout 1976. Far from hastily realized material, Elvis would tackle a far-ranging mix of country and pop covers ("Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain," "I'll Never Fall in Love Again," "Danny Boy," "Solitaire") and late-period classics of the Elvis Presley catalog, such as "Moody Blue" and "Way Down."
