From Elvis in Memphis

I referred to this radio show in a previous post, but I did not know whether it was currently available online. After free registration on this site, you can listen to this one hour documentary about Elvis's experience recording at American. All five Memphis Boys participated and share their stories! Great stuff!

Mac Davis reminisces about the writing of In the Ghetto. Interesting to learn that the guitar lick Reggie plays in the intro (which he acknowledges was taken from Mac's demo) actually originated from country singer Freddy Weller!
