1970!
Those versions kicks ass!
I like the ones from 1972 aswell, after that there are some nice versions but none as good as those early ones.

The song was never better than it was in August, 1976.

By far, Elvis' finest live performances of "C.C. Rider" are the handful we have from February 1970 on multi-track, soundboard and audience recordings.

They are both good but I prefer the later versions that opened his show. To me, there is just something about how 2001 flows right into it.

Is it spelled "See See Rider" or C.C. Rider. When I looked on some cds it was both. I picked "See See Rider".

In 1970, RCA (or management) chose the public domain "See See Rider" (with an arrangement credit to Elvis) to avoid paying royalties to the estate of Chuck Willis. The correct title is "C.C. Rider."

LaVern Baker's 1962 version was also called "See See Rider":

By far, the best version is Feb, 1970 on the "On Stage" album. We get a great solo from James.

Ma Rainey recorded See See Rider Blues in 1925. Having said that, Leadbelly recorded CC Rider in 1935.
