Elvis Presley: Walk a Mile in My Shoes: The Essential ‘70s Masters

Geoffrey Himes, Washington Post, The, 13 December 1995

ELVIS PRESLEY'S music in the 1970s is often dismissed as the bombastic, half-hearted hack work of an overweight, pill-addicted, badly dressed has-been. In the liner notes to the new five-CD, Walk a Mile in My Shoes: The Essential ‘70s Masters (RCA), Dave Marsh argues that Presley, in fact, created a more impressive body of work in the '70s than almost any other pop act. And the music on this massive anthology (the third five-CD Presley box set RCA has released) backs Marsh up.
