Interesting. So Elvis could have had this album, maybe? I like Elvis' recordings, but you can't help thinking that if he'd recorded them 2-3 years earlier, he would have made a better job of them and could have put together a meaningful R&B album.

Yes !

Elvis had some interesting material at those July, '73 sessions, but sleep-walks through the songs like recording them was a contractual obligation !

When he came back in the December, his performances were much better.

Pity he couldn't have re-recorded the earlier stuff !
