I always thought it was the backing group: AAHH OOHHH AAAH OOOHH
If somebody actually knows what is shouted I'd love to hear!

And looped. The scream is done only once, but the loops makes it sound like she screamed twice.

I always thought that this orgasmic scream was utterly annoying.

Yes it is and utterly unnecessary. Its the worst part of that LP.

The scream is edit out (or not "punch in") on the FTD CD "Hot August Night." This is my "go to" source for "I Can't Stop Loving You."

Just Jarvis working his 'magic'. Constitionally unable to allow Elvis to stand on his own greatness. Simply a hack.

Put on the MSG version. No hack.

Psychological projection seems to be at play here.

Wow, I've just learned something new. I thought the screams were a result of Elvis doing something which triggered the response by an over-zealous fan. Elvis' versions of this Ray Charles classic are awesome.

It was the response of an overzealous fan. Just looped for greater effect. The showroom wasn't on tour. It needed livening up a little. But the effect obviously worked if you just learnt it now. I thought the same until some years ago. Not the first or last live album that is tampered with. Other acts even had their main parts re-done. Nothing "live" about that.

There's nothing wrong with throwing in an orgasm on a live Elvis LP.

Elvis would never have inspired so many analyses if he hadn't first inspired so many orgasms.

Thanks Juan. I'm not alarmed about the placement of it. I still enjoy hearing it and think it is a really neat moment. Understanding that Las Vegas is not in a large concert hall on the road, that moment connects me to the live concerts I was able to attend. The concerts I attended featured a lot of spontaneity by different audience members. So for me all of these years later, it just seemed like a natural response of an excited fan.

Even Ernst has made decisions that he feels make something more "listenable" -- and therefore, more enjoyable.

There's poetic license -- and then there's re-writing history. An ongoing tension...

I never minded the fact that it was obviously spliced in from elsewhere. But the fact that it is clearly the same audio snippet played twice seemed just flat out stupid to me. Still seems dumb all these years later.

Every time I hear that song I hear that scream and I wonder what's going on in that audience.Didn't know it was looped or from someplace else.
I just let that crazy scream pass and then it's clear sailing for a great Elvis concert.

It's actually played 3 times, listen again ...

Wait, it's stupid. Better pull out my "Hits from His Movies" album.

It continues after Elvis starts singing too.

I've never been able to make out what that person is screaming, it sounds like "oh boy boy boy boy" or something....

That's correct. IIRC, you hear it during the introductions on DAE's "Here I Go Again" (about 5 seconds in). It's from the August 22nd midnight show, per Keith Flynn's review of the tapes. (http://keithflynn.com/essential_lists/concerts-1969.html)
