From Joe Esposito and Joe Russos book-Elvis-Straight Up-:lol:-

Speaking of "blue",it was during the session for "Hurt" that Elvis recorded a unique version of that song especially for his father.After completing the master take,he asked Felton and the band to run through the song one more time.When he reached the spoken part of his performance,Elvis twisted the lovelorn recitation into a shocking, X-rated verbal assault that would have made late 80's comedian Sam Kinnison blush!Once we all regained our composure,Elvis sent for his father,Vernon,and said,"Listen to this,Daddy.You'll love it".Felton ran the playback of "Hurt".The song's dramatic opening crescendo followed by Elvis' booming opening line blared through the speakers,filling the room with sound:"I'm...soooohuuuuurrt".Vernon listened intently to Elvis's impassioned,powerful vocal,nodding his approval.Moment's later came the spoken second verse:

"I'm hurt...
much more...god***it honey,
I told you so...shit!...
yes darling,i'm so hurt...c***sucker!
Because...I still love you so...motherf***er!"

Vernon turned red."Oh,lord have mercy,son...what am i gonna do with you? he said,burying his face in his hands.It truly was one of the funniest prank's I've ever seen Elvis pull off.By the way,don't count on hearing this version of "Hurt" anytime soon.I believe Felton saw to it that tape was destroyed.:lol::):king:(y):king:(y)

That X-rated version of "Hurt" has not been destroyed. I have heard it a few times. I'm pretty sure there must be a download possible somewhere.....

I have heard this before and being a woman don't care for the words but I find it funny that he was trying to get a rise out of his father - which he did.:D

Again though he left himself open for someone to pinch this tape and use it to discredit him in some way................:doh:

Felton did in fact see to it that the tape was destroyed. I believe his wife burned it for him.

The reason the recording lives on is that David Briggs had a tape recorder going during part of the Jungle Room sessions -- Elvis saw it and didn't seem to care -- and that is why the performances we have heard are of lower sound quality and in most cases, the tape speed has not been corrected (it's slow): they are made from his recording.

I don't think he recorded anything else that has not been released, like America The Beautiful or some of the tracks that he is rumored to have recorded. I have it on a tape somewhere. Well, if he did record anything like that it hasn't been released to my knowledge.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Review by Crister Berge

Released in 1999, CUT ME is a collection of 22 "X-rated" studio / live / rehearsal tracks that weren't suitable for official release, because of rude language. They even squeezed in a poem, 'Ode To A Robin,' which has a surprise ending, and the infamous "drug monologue" from closing night in Vegas, August 1974 (released in its entirety on Fort Baxter's DESERT STORM). Lots of "****************" in all its different inflections and "mother****************er" is Elvis' favourite choice word of poetic spice. The title is a paraphrase on the remark "There's blood running through my veins" that Elvis uttered in a 1962 interview. "After all, Elvis was only human." No shit?! Playing time is 74:29 and the packaging is appealing: it sports three great color pictures of Elvis with fans from 1968, '69 and ? But: The editing between the songs is horrendous, there's a spelling error in the track list and the liner notes MUST be written by someone whose second god****************ed language is English!

It starts out with a good example of Elvis' sense of humour. He says: "Did-did you hear the little poem that I wrote?" Elvis recites the words dead-serious, but the comical twist at the end breaks everybody up. It was taped by Elvis' girl friend Linda Thompson at her home. I laughed as Hell first time I heard it! 'Wings Of An Angel' is a rotten song, unknown to me, jaded by poor sound, and very short: just over a minute. The line "the balls of a big hairy coon" is the reason why BMG has not released it.

Since BMG has issued it, there are no swearwords in 'A Hundred Years From Now.' The profanity is to be found in Elvis' pre-song comment: "There goes my ****************ing career, right down the drain." First "mother****************er" of the CD is in the uncut master of 'Got My Mojo Working,' which runs for five minutes. From the same session, 'Muddy Water' is also five minutes, the dirty language here is just a mere "shit" at the end. All of the songs from 1970 are in excellent sound, by the way. 'Cindy, Cindy' features an extensive guitar solo by James Burton. Elvis shouts "Fade this mother****************er!" at the end.

The Memphis sessions are represented with the well-known alternate take of 'Only The Strong Survive' where Elvis is recitin' a letter: "Listen, you little cocksucker..." From a '74 rehearsal comes yet another "mother****************er" as 'Promised Land' gets some poetic justice: "...the mother****************er's on the line".

In 'Hurt,' Elvis incorporates words like "goddammit", "shit", "cocksucker" and "mother****************er" to the lyrics during the recitation. The funny thing is that it's a complete take and not bad at all, 'cept for the swearing, of course. Audio is terrible, and if you've read Arjan Deleen's excellent interview with Ernst Jorgensen, the reason for this is that it's a fifth generation reference copy. The original tape was allegedly destroyed by Felton Jarvis' wife, due to the vulgar (and tragic!) nature of the performance. And obviously, it is NOT "take 69"! Awful sound in 'Goin' Home.' Elvis struggles with the song and after another failed take, says "**************** the fever, man."

Four songs are taken from a 1970 rehearsal: 'Heart of Rome' gets the romantic treatment with lyric changes as "I'll take a piss in ev'ry fountain." Funny? You be the judge. 'Memories' is a classic. While chewing gum, Elvis pants, imitates a cow, a dog, a cat and even Burton's wah-wah guitar. Hilarious! BMG released the 5? minute long 'Stranger In My Own Home Town' on the box set WALK A MILE IN MY SHOES in a censored version. Very different from the studio recording from American Sound, it's transformed into a slow blues, in the tempo of 'Reconsider Baby' or 'Merry Christmas Baby.' And the poetry is at full bloom here: "I'm gonna start drivin' that mother****************in' truck again" - - - "all 'em cocksuckers stopped bein' friendly..." At the end he incorporates some of the members of the Memphis Mafia in an extra, spur-of-the-moment verse. And they tell me he didn't write songs!

From opening night in Las Vegas, Aug. 19, 1974, comes a wonderful reading of 'Good Time Charlie's Got The Blues,' where Elvis sings "Play around you'll lose your wife - I already done that... Play too long you'll lose your life - I almost did that."

Well, well, well. Hardly a must-have, this one.

America The Beautiful - or a portion of it at least - can be heard on The Jungle Room Sessions CD. Apparently, this is all that's left of the studio version as the original tapes were re-used.

Absolutely. I should have said in its entirety. Good call.

Man, that reminds me of the excitement of giving that CD its first listen and hearing that at the end of the CD...I guess almost ten years ago. The instrumental track of There's A Fire Down Below had ended and the counter for the playing time of the CD was still ticking. Having just weeks before then played another CD with a hidden track (believe it was Jimmy Buffett), it did occur to me that I was likely in for a similar treat with this Elvis CD. And after about 15 seconds of silence, sure enough there was the last 20 seconds of ATB. Not a lot, but a little bit of gold for the Elvis enthusiast. What was there certainly sounded great and left the listener pining to hear the complete performance.

I had no idea the track was going to be at the end.

As I played the CD for the first time, I dozed off on the couch and woke up at the end of Fire Down Below. As I lay there waking up, I thought I was hearing things when that bit of America came on. A nice surprise, and a pity the whole thing doesn't exist ... yet!
