Elvis treated audiences to a raucous rock set inspired by the recent sessions to his just-released studio album From Elvis In Memphis, backed by vocal groups The Imperials and The Sweet Inspirations as well as an early version of his famed TCB Band. Kalita are honoured to release for the first time Emerson's mythical unreleased boogie masterpiece 'If You Need Me, Call Me', accompanied by extensive interview-based liner notes and never-before-seen photos.
The musical product of the visionary couple Emerson and Leora Sandidge, 'If You Need Me, Call Me' is a personal collection of synthesizer and drum-machine-led boogie of the highest quality. Released on black vinyl, with printed inner sleeve detailing Emerson's life and musical career. The album contains songs performed during Clapton's world tour. Limited 3 x g 12" clear vinyl album for RSD Erykah Badu and James Poyser have teamed up to take the classic track down a totally new route, turning it into a soulful, raw performance with Miss Badus vocals shining through, bringing a brand new light to the song.
Produced and engineered by Squeeze aficionado Steve Mandel, the track features an incredible crewing of backing musicians, ranging from Thundercat to Derrick Hodge and Ali Jackson.
