The Memphis Boys triumphantly declare hit-filled legacy during Elvis Week

From the site:

Wednesday evening was a long time coming for the Memphis Boys, the band solely responsible for resurrecting Elvis Presley's recording career in the summer of 1969 with incendiary jewels including "In the Ghetto," "Suspicious Minds," "Don't Cry Daddy," and "Kentucky Rain." Mere hours after basking in the limelight of a hometown ceremony bestowing historical marker status on the location where American Studios once stood, pianist Bobby Wood, organist Bobby Emmons, drummer Gene Chrisman, and guitarist Reggie Young headed over to Graceland for a hit-packed, once-in-a-lifetime performance as fiercely independent producer Chips Moman proudly encouraged his musical comrades on from the front row.
