The thirteenth song that Elvis recorded during those landmark - TopicsExpress


The thirteenth song that Elvis recorded during those landmark recording sessions at American Sound Studios in Memphis in 1969 and featuredin his final acting movie - Change of Habit. This rare live recording first appeared on the 1991 RCA/BMG box set Collectors Gold without the false start included here. In 2005 FTD released the entire 26 August 1969 Midnight Show, titled All Shook Up, from which this song was performed and put the song into its proper context and it is also the same show from which the famous laughing version of Are You Lonesome Tonight originates. 26 August 1969 was a strange night as far as the setlist was concerned as the two shows also produced the only live performances of Rubberneckin and Inherit The Wind especially since August 69 probably had the most rigid setlist that Elvis would employ with rarities at a premium. Considering this was Elvis first live performance in eight and a half years this was understandable with band and singers all new, a tight setlist keeps any problems with unfamiliarity at a minimum and creates a comfort zone. As Elvis confidence increased the rarities appeared, this track was performed a full four weeks into the engagement. The actual reason for performing this Memphis trio was actually for inclusion in what would become Elvis In Person a fact Elvis tells the audience before singing Inherit The Wind at the Dinner Show, odd therefore that all three were ommited from the album and were only officially released 24 years later! Listen out for Elvis singing a few lines of Loving You after the song has concluded. https://youtube/watch?v=cfN8QkJwjWY
