    Elvis' last studio recordings were made in the den of Graceland, with Presley performing his vocals karaoke-style over previously completed backing tracks. Ten of these tracks, recorded in February 1976, are collected on FROM ELVIS PRESLEY BOULEVARD, MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE. The tone of this album is set by the opening track, "Hurt," a top 10 country hit for the King. Like "Hurt," nearly all the songs on FROM ELVIS PRESLEY BOULEVARD are about loss, regret, sadness, and disappointment.
    It's easy to read between the lines and find an autobiographical context, to hear in these songs Elvis mourning for his mother, his separation from his wife and daughter, and his deteriorating health and physique. On songs like "Bitter They Are, Harder They Fall," Neil Sedaka's "Solitaire," and the classic tearjerker "Danny Boy," Presley digs down deep and comes up with an armload of emotion. His singing is surprisingly strong too, given that his talents were noticeably diminished by poor health and drug abuse during these years. Other tracks from the Graceland sessions appear on MOODY BLUE, Presley's final studio album.
