So what did Elvis used to play on the jukebox for his own pleasure? Which artists/bands became a huge and constant influence on his singing and performance style? So what 45rpm's and L.P.'s are in that legendary record collection he kept in Graceland, same record collection he started as a teenager hanging around in record shops in 50's Memphis?

So most of the songs I'll post here, and I do invite you all to post, is the stuff we do know Elvis loved, artist he admired and tributed, songs that latter he recorded, most for his own pleasure, either in the studio, live, or as informal recordings at home.

I think Elvis will enjoy for sure this thread as a play list!


So I'll start with this '63 R&B piece, this is Percy Mayfield's "Stranger in My Own Home Town". Song Elvis must have get since day 1 he lisen to that record.

Elvis recorded this song, out of a jam at the American Sound Studios in February '69, and released (dubbed and edited) in the Elvis Back in Memphis L.P. November same year. A favourite of his, we got evidence of him jaming again on this number with the TCB Band while rehearsing for his August '70 concerts.

So how about this, Elvis must have been around 12 years old when Eddie Arnold recorded this song. Elvis remember it well at 34, as he started to play it at the piano out of nowhere. That jam became one of the highlights of his '69 Amercian Sessions.

On October 3, 1945, Presley at age ten sang "Old Shep" for his first public performance, a singing contest at the Mississippi-Alabama Fair and Dairy Show. Dressed as a cowboy, he stood on a chair to reach the microphone. He came in fifth place, winning $5 and a free ticket to the fair rides.

This is the song he choosed to cover back then as a kid.

He loved the song deep enough, as he did it on the piano and recorded it in '56

From wikipedia:

The Golden Gate Quartet (aka The Golden Gate Jubilee Quartet) is the most successful of all of the African-American gospel music groups who sang in the jubilee quartet style.[citation needed] Founded as the Golden Gate Jubilee Quartet in Norfolk, Virginia in 1934 by Robert Ford, A.C. Griffin, Willie Johnson, William Langford, Henry Owens and Orlandus Wilson. They began as a traditional jubilee quartet, combining the clever arrangements associated with barbershop quartets with rhythms borrowed from the blues and jazz like scat singing...

...During his stint in the US Army, in Germany, Elvis Presley, who was a huge admirer of their work since his early childhood, visited them backstage at "Le Lido", in Paris, and stayed to watch their entire show, staying also with them at the hotel "Prince de Galles".

Can't forget about Ray Charles.

One thing had to be noted about I Got A Woman, is the one song Elvis was doing on stage since the early day (sun era), all the way through his 50's tours, he recorded the thing for his 1st album, he did it in his post army concerts in memphis and hawaii '61, he rehearsed it for the '68 comeback special, and did it live again from '69 to '77. Can't thing of another song that he did more often and for a longer period of time. Guess he liked that one huh?

About What'd I Say, I think his '63 recordind is underrated, plus, his '69 live performance of it, is a killer.

Here's E doing the later version(a cool video medley with what sounds like the "Dixieland Rocks" version) of "I got a woman/Amen" that we talked about earlier. I love how he flowed effortlessly from IGAW to Amen at 2:10 and then back to IGAW. I included Larnell Harris' version first performed on Billy Grahams program in the late 70's. I included this version only because I could easily hear Elvis singing a version similar to this. I honestly believe that Elvis would have became a full time gospel singer in the 1980's had he lived.

Let me just throw in the original here, which is probably(not sure) where Elvis got his. This is from "Lilies of the Field" with Sidney Poitier(1963).This vocal performance was overdubbed and written by Jester Hairston. He is reknown for arranging traditional "negro spirituals".

Lowell Fulson's Reconsider Baby.

Elvis and Scotty Moore, they love the man so much that they actually went to see him live somewhere in '55 as they both where touring the same area. Much to their surprise, Mr. Fulson was not only aware of Elvis sun records, but spot him and Scotty in the audience and asked to join him for a jam on stage, and yes, it was Reconsider Baby the one song they jam with. Awesome isn't it?

Elvis recorded the son in '60 for the Elvis is Back album, and played it live a bunch of times, from the Hawaii '61 concert, to his vegas season in '69, to his Madison Square Garden gigs, and even as late as '77.

Okey, so here I am, catching up with this old thread about the stuff that Elvis must have loved. This time with a Jerry Lee number, both raised in the south, educated by Sam Philips, and just as The Beatles vs. The Stones in the 60's, back in the 50's they where taken rivals, although actually they where friends from each other. Yet as much as Elvis liked Jerry Lee, in 1970 he kind of needed to let us know who could rock harded from both.

Yes I believe this one comes from his Chips Moman produced American Sessions at the time he and Elvis meet while both recording there. Probably a nod after Elvis gave him the song Angelica, a song that Chips gave to Elvis as one of the potential big hit singles for him during that session, but Elvis gave it to Hamilton who was struggling gettin new hit material.

I'm sure Angelica would have been a bigger follow up hit than Don't Cry Daddy after the success of In The Ghetto and Suspicious Minds. But Elvis was surely a generous man with the ones he loved. I do also would have loved this one with Elvis!

In the end the song didn't went that well for Hamilton, as it could have been for Elvis, but a lot of people recorded it after him. It became Hamilton's swan song as he sadly died too soon in mid '69.

I'm not so sure it would have been a bigger follow up to DCD, I think Angelica sounds more like an album filler-but we all have our own likes and dislikes.
Mac Davis having penned DCD may have had something to do with it being chosen as a single since Elvis had very good results from the songs by Davis he had recorded.

I personaly like much more Don't Cry Daddy as a song, I think its superior. So you might as well be 100% right.

What I meant is that Chips was pushing the song to Elvis considering for a Single Release with strong hit potential, that being a Barry Mann song, who at the time was gettin more hits than Mac Davis. At the time Chips Moman and his sound at American studios had a strong reputation about knowing what could and what could not be a hit. Angelica had a stronger American Studios feel than the much country Don't Cry Daddy, so people might have been expecting more of that after Suspicious Minds. But who knows really...

Any how, Elvis had his own way to do things so, we don't really even know in which groove would Elvis have done it. Don't Cry Daddy and Kentucky Rain are among my favourite Elvis tunes, but some how didn't went as good on the charts as In The Ghetto and Suspicious Minds, guess at the time people was expecting more of the soulish Elvis sound, and less of the country flavor.

This rather what Elvis heard on the demo Chips gave him, not the Hamilton's version of it: http://youtu.be/paWqiGPsFYw

Just listening to the words of Angelica - that was just such an Elvis song. he loved this kind of ballad, I can hear his passion as he would have sung this song - much like in the way Roy Hamilton sings. It may not have been a hit for Elvis either, but it is one great love song.

Your welcome Hounddog, I know its not a surprise but I like Elvis' version of Its Over. Jimmy's seems to fast and not emotional connection, Elvis really tells the story.

Another guy Elvis surely took his hat off before him.

Somewhere Aug '69 or '70 can't remember, Elvis introduced James Burton as -on the guitar: Lightnin' Hopkins-.
