    I am sorry to hear this. I once knew someone with Eating disorders. Coming from a family ravaged by alcohol and/or drug addiction-I remember finding myself trying to “save” them. I avoided the addiction problems my family had because I spent most of my time in hospitals with Crohns from 13-22. I like to think my illness saved-and even sheltered me.
    Anyway, thanks for sharing. This entire thread (I arrived late and catching up one album and single at a time)is just full of goodness. The strong feelings for Elvis and one another is a picker upper. The all around lack of trolling and great music analysis is icing. Cheers.

    Listening to this one as I read this. I agree with you. This is a good one.

    That's my opinion, too. The box set looks very nice (with a ca 1970 Elvis for a set of 1973 sessions) and on first sight it screams for soul/ funk/ R&B/ sexy lyrics/ new, rough pumping musicians etc- but in the end to me it's just another MOR country/ ballads Elvis set with lots of depressing lyrics and much too slow typical mid 70s country songs à la Conway Twitty or Narvel Felts.
    People are interested in this because it says "STAX" and Elvis- but I bet in the end most listeners (who are not diehard Elvis fans) won't come back to this set very often.
