    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.
    Work in Progress!

    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.


    Just pretend, I'm holding you, and whispering things soft and low.
    And think of me, how it's gonna be and just pretend I didn't go

    Hounddog, just click on the film looking icon (4th icon right of the link icon). Click on the icon and just copy and paste the youtube video link in the name box and hit ok. Just ask if you need more help.

    Thanks for the video links by the way.
    Love Elvis...The Greatest

    RIP Tommy

    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.
    Love Elvis...The Greatest
