Walk a Mile in My Shoes: The Essential '70s Masters è un cofanetto antologico (box set) di Elvis Presley pubblicato nel 1995. Si focalizza sugli anni settanta, il terzo e ultimo decennio della carriera di Presley.

Inizialmente pubblicato sotto forma di cofanetto a forma di LP, include un set di cartoline ed un esaustivo booklet ad opera di Dave Marsh. Il box set venne certificato disco d'oro dalla Recording Industry Association of America il 15 luglio 1999.

Descrizione[modifica | modifica wikitesto]

I primi due dischi raggruppano tutti i lati A e B dei singoli pubblicati da Elvis negli Stati Uniti durante gli anni settanta, con le eccezioni di Kentucky Rain/My Little Friend, e della B-side Mama Liked the Roses, registrate negli anni sessanta; il singolo gospel He Touched Me b/w Bosom of Abraham, Only Believe e Help Me, già incluse in Amazing Grace: His Greatest Sacred Performances; e O Come All Ye Faithful, la B-side del singolo natalizio del 1971 Merry Christmas, Baby. Gli ultimi due singoli usciti postumi, My Way b/w America the Beautiful del novembre 1977, e Unchained Melody b/w Softly As I Leave You del febbraio 1978, sono anch'essi esclusi, sebbene Unchained Melody sia presente nel quinto disco del box, e versioni diverse di My Way e Softly As I Leave You siano presenti in altri dischi del set. Dei 23 singoli statunitensi inclusi, 19 entrarono nella top 40, dei quali The Wonder of You e Burning Love raggiunsero la top 10. Inoltre sono incluse anche quattro tracce pubblicate su 45 giri solo in Gran Bretagna: I Just Can't Help Believin' b/w How the Web Was Woven, Green Green Grass of Home, e Loving Arms, lato B inglese di My Boy.

I dischi 3 e 4 contengono tracce di studio provenienti da svariati album, con 10 inediti e varie versioni alternative di brani noti. Particolarmente rare e degne di nota le inclusioni della precedentemente inedita versione in studio della Lady Madonna dei Beatles, e l'accenno appena abbozzato del primo verso di I Shall Be Released di Bob Dylan, anch'esso inedito.

Il quinto disco mette insieme la scaletta di uno spettacolo tipico di Presley dell'epoca, traendo materiali da diversi show del periodo 1970-1972, con 21 canzoni per una durata complessiva di un'ora circa. Undici delle tracce dal vivo sono versioni inedite.
