This chapter describes Elvis’s sessions at American in 1969. The effects of the Elvis sessions affected the lives of all who were there for years to come and literally restored Elvis to his throne; by the end of the year he was on top of the charts once again. And just as the American group put Elvis back upon the map, so he put them on the map as well. Though the credits were not listed on the album, everybody in the industry knew who had made the recordings, and it increased demand for the musicians and Chips.
