And, while I was in the neighborhood, I would have liked to visit Sam's house when they had birthday cake for Elvis on January 8th. I bet it was a heck of a party!


My fav reply so far, the Sun period is so tempting, also getting a seat in the corner for that MDQ session, just to see if Cash did sing anything that day ?

Monday, July 11, 1955: Sun Studio

I Forgot To Remember To Forget
Mystery Train
Trying To Get To You

Imagine hearing that joyful "whoop" at the end of Mystery Train in person!

I have to agree with elvis-fan. These are 3 of my favorite songs by Elvis.

To sit there and hear all the outtakes would be great.

Hopefully someday these session tapes will be released.

I'd like to sit on on the "Blue Hawaii" sessions. They produced some good music which I would have enjoyed watching and listening being made.

Just like Ken, I would be thrilled to be in any sessions, but if given a choice, I would like the Elvis Is Back Sessions and G.I. Blues because this was the first Elvis movie I had seen and it made me a fan.
