In the lead up to the Today sessions, Elvis won a Grammy® for ‘Best Inspirational Performance’ of 1975. The award was for an in-concert version of “How Great Thou Art,” and it couldn’t have come at a better time. The chance to take possession of the treasured trophy came when Elvis flew out to the coast in readiness to rehearse and record at RCA’s studio in Hollywood. Elvis’ last studio album, like his first, was made up of songs he chose and loved.
This 40th anniversary Legacy Edition contains the original album featuring the hit single “T-R-O-U-B-L-E” and 10 undubbed session mixes. Disc 2 features live performances given within weeks of the album’s release. Previously issued in 1980, this constructed show has
been remastered and reassembled from original source tapes to offer improved audio definition.
Like a true premier vintage, Today has matured with age and needs to be savored.
