Like all Memphis music institutions started in the considerable wake of Sun Records and Elvis Presley, the specter of the Elvis hung over Stax: The first version of ‚ÄúGreen Onions‚ÄĚ was cut on a lathe at Sun Records the same day it was played on the radio and lit up request lines, becoming an unlikely hit. Elvis‚Äô childhood neighbor, Louis Paul, recorded for Stax‚Äôs Enterprise imprint. Elvis himself recorded at Stax Records in 1973, cutting a bevy of songs in the middle of the night‚ÄĒwhen Isaac Hayes often recorded; he was asked to reschedule‚ÄĒin what amounted to the final serious studio sessions of Presley‚Äôs career; the songs would form the bulk of his albums from 1973 through 1975. But there‚Äôs one artifact that chronicles the cultural exchange between Elvis and the legendary label at 926 E. McLemore more than any other, a cultural exchange that reimagines Elvis‚Äô blues-indebted rock songs as searing guitar blues of the highest order, the album that brings us here today: Albert King‚Äôs 'King, Does The King‚Äôs Things'.
