I wonder if this one was inspired by Dusty Springfield's superb 1969 "Dusty In Memphis" album?

Very nice topic! Red was the better one of the group, at least he showed interest in music and had a go at writing some decent songs. I read, that when Red was out on the road with Elvis in the beginning, it was Scotty Moore who showed Red a few guitar chords when they were travelling in the backseat of a car or in hotel rooms etc...must've been great times! So Red progressed from there.

Good topic, Doc. Apart from a few "off topic" comments, which always happens. You kept it on track by telling them to stay "on topic" good on you.

Yes, Clark's sessions were 100% inspired by Springfield's work at American Sound.

It's a real shame Red did not consistently write for Elvis throughout the years, or that Elvis did not try to collaborate with his friend, it could have resulted in a really decent LP.

No reason to apologize at all. Your topic allows us all to engage anew regarding Red's work for Elvis.

Wow. Red composed 136 songs? Oh, Elvis, what you were doing back then??
