    Stranger, for sure. The bluesy studio jam from 1970 is even more enjoyable, especially in its unedited form.
    ...you won't forget me when I go.

    Both are really great, but although "Power Of My Love" is sexy (thanks to the lady on the background), I prefer "Stranger In My Own Home Town". That song is simply fantastic.

    Both are gritty and tough and I love them both, but I have to go with the Power.

    I go for Stranger In My Own Home Town... though I like both songs.
    Let the stars fade and fall, and I won't care at all, as long as I have you.

    Neither one. But I'll choose Power Of My Love.

    Both are great records, there are good alternate takes of "Power of My Love", I like the one on "Platinium", but Ill go for "Stranger In My Own HOme Town", in fact one of my Elvis favourites.

    THe '70 Jam of Stranger In My Own HOme Town is fantastic, I love it, but I Only know the version on "Walk A mile On My SHoes the essential 70' masters box" Where did you get the unedited form of that jam? I only knew of the unedited version of the '69 Jam in Memphis.

    WOW!!! TOUGH CALL...

    While I LOVE both songs, I think I have to give the slight edge to STRANGER IN MY OWN HOMETOWN just because of the roughness of the performance, versus the "polished", if you will, performance of POWER OF MY LOVE. Both are great performances, but STRANGER just has a little more edge to it. (In my opinion, of course!)

    They're both great songs, but I would choose: Power of my love.



    Be safe and take care,
