Toward the end of his life, Elvis Presley’s albums were a hit or miss affair, but his singles were usually first rate.
“Raised On Rock” was released September 22, 1973 and almost became a top 40 hit. It peaked at number 41 on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart.
It was a well produced and sung, rock/pop song that proved that even as his life was coming to a close, he could still sing when he was interested and the material was good.
“Raised On Rock” remains one of his better efforts of the 1970s.
