Rebel Designs Presents – The Memphis Sessions, 1969

cover copy

This project started last October, with the idea to create an alternative cover for Elvis’ classic 1969 release “From Elvis In Memphis”. As is normally the case, with input and ideas from other fans the project soon grew, and before long there were multiple designs for both “From Elvis In Memphis” and its follow up album “Back In Memphis” in progress as the months passed.

I will be putting the individual covers up for download in the coming weeks, but firstly I wanted to present them in a portfolio, with a little background information on how the project evolved, and how this was influenced by the decisions RCA made with Elvis’ album releases back in the 1969 – 70 period.

Hope you enjoy the designs and the story behind them. David Parker / Rebel Designs.
