"Looking Back" Elvis Presley at Stax Studios."Loving Arms"

 

Elvis - Loving Arms


"Looking Back" Elvis Presley at Stax Studios


"Loving Arms"


FROM TUPELO TO MEMPHIS


 
The second song recorded on December 13, 1973 at Stax Studios, would be the song "Loving Arms". A somewhat bittersweet theme, a ballad with a moderate rhythm in the style of Country, folk, but with an indisputable beauty in its melody.

 A simple song, written in the central register in which Elvis could show off his voice without complications and where he can pour out all his feelings.




 "Loving Arms" by Tom Jans
 Elvis recorded this song at Stax on December 13, 1973.

  It was first published on the album "Good Times". Later on "Walk A Mile In My Shoes", the 2000 reissue of "Promised Land", and on "The Country Side of Elvis". An alternate take came out on "Essential Elvis, vol. 5". An arrangement for the 1980 "Guitar Man" album, also on the FTD "Too Much Monkey Business" re-release, etc.

 It was published as a Single, on the B side in some edition with "My Boy". And as the second single from it, with "You Asked Me To" on the B side.




 In the United States, the single charted as a double A-side ("Lovin' Arms"/"You Asked Me To") on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart. reaching number 8.

 The song's author, Tom Jans, was a folk singer-songwriter and guitarist. His best known song was "Loving Arms" which was heavily covered by artists like Kris Kristofferson and Rita Coolidge, and later by artists like Dobie Gray, Elvis Presley, Dixie Chicks, Natalie Cole, Olivia Newton-John, Petula Clark, etc. .

 The musical accompaniment with more care and effort than in other recorded songs, but certainly with the voice of Elvis, not much more was needed. The Choir as always adorns his voice and supports this ballad that is a bit sad.





 But sung by Elvis with intense regret, at some point very passionate about the interpretation, since it is a song that makes him look back and want to redo what he did wrong.
 A score that in the voice of Elvis makes one think of the separation from him. Elvis sings it masterfully and the song is simple and pleasant.
 The incredibly descriptive lyrics recount a feeling of guilt, looking back and undoing steps, looking back yearning for freedom from their chains...

 Despite not having proved to be a loyal and understanding husband with his ex-wife, it was clear that Elvis was still anchored somewhere, in another time that he unfortunately had not known how to take advantage of.
