Hello Elvis friends,

I just listened again to the great Brightest Star CD 1&2 from
fort Baxter. What an awesome rehearsal, just Elvis & the rythym section.
I was sad to read in the book covering the movie, MGM missed
that date & filmed the rehearsal before & after. What a shame.

Elvis seemed to be much more himself without the cameras.
I guess we are all like that.

Thanks, Sean

The version of "memories" is downright hilarious...I love it.

"Johnny B. Goode" also rocks...different sound with JB on wa-wa pedal for some of it.

Just going by the different shirts he is wearing, they filmed a minimum of 5 different reheasals. Am I right or is there more?
