Today is Elvis’s last great achievement in the studio, in my opinion. The Jungle Room sessions have moments of brilliance, but you have to be a super fan to get into them. Today, on the other hand, is simply a great album. Not a great album for Elvis in 1975, but a great Elvis album, period. I rate three of the songs as brilliant: Fairytale, Green, Green Grass of Home, and Pieces of My Life. For the umpteenth time, we see Elvis finding a song you’d never expect him to sing, the Pointer Sisters’ Fairytale, and doing it justice. Even the “filler” tracks - Susan When She Tried, I Can Help, etc. - are very solid. I love the Stax sessions, but the Today album is even better.
