    Clean Up Your Own Back Yard

    How good is this song and video??

    I love the jerky movement of the camera.... Although I don't particularly like the film

    Thank you Matt. This song made the movie for me. It's in my top ten favorites. The movie wasn't the best for sure, but it wasn't the worse either. I loved watching him sing Swing Down Chariot even better though as I could picture the impact he would have had on people had he decided to be an evangelist.

    Yes, I love this scene, although this isn't one of my favorite movies, and yes, Camerone, Stranger in My Hometown (Memphis Sessions) is one of ABSOLUTE favorites!!!!!

    This is an absolute AWESOME song from the sessions at American Studios in 1969. The x-rated version isn't my favorite, but the undubbed version on The Memphis Sessions is the BEST!!!!!!!!

    If you felt that Elvis was at best when he recorded at American, then you must get this one and make it part of your daily routine. I just can't listen to it enough!!!
