I think it was planned after the first one.

Where is this "3 time" unplug during One Night? Do you have a tape we have not seen?


Tape? No. The 3 DVD set, yes.

But please note I was going by memory and I did write second or third time, so give me the benefit of the doubt. And also note, I was referring to the song, not a single performance.

Either way, I am still convinced it wasn’t by accident the second time. I went back to the “tapes” to review.

One night is performed 3 times during the sit-down shows and of those 3, 2 are actually stand up performances.

When Elvis accidently causes the cord to come out, he’s says, “somebody pulled the plug”.

So, at the next show during the same song, I think they tried to re-create the bit, more than likely for
possible editing purposes.

He once again brings up the fact there is “no strap”.
I think the lady fan to Elvis’ right pulled the plug out.
And he once again says, “somebody pulled the plug”.
And if you look at the expression on his face, he gives it away.

All too coincidental.

Go back and check it out.

IIRC that only happened once.


That settles it, I have tapes you don't have.

Cool how about you posting the video to show us where Elvis' guitar gets unplugged more than one time within all the "One Night" songs during the entire 1968 NBC video tapings, we would love to see it!



This is an odd response.

Do you have the 3 disc dvd set of the 68 special?

Please answer that before we continue.

Yes and nowhere can I find his guitar getting the plug pulled more than once during One Night, so what is your point?

No you just need to get your facts straight as usual, before questioning something that has nothing to do with the facts.
Instead of asking what I own, you should have put in your DVD's and learned something first.

you are totally missing my point and misunderstanding what I wrote.

Please, will somebody school this boy, I don't have the time?

And FYI there are various little bits and pieces and different angles that they didn't use
on the 3 disc set that I have on my 30+ year old video tapes.

Such as when Elvis took a puff from a cigar between takes 1011-1012.

This comes from my secret stash. Wanna see a still frame?

And again to Promiseland, I didn't bring this up elvisalisellers did so why not dispute with him/her?

I only brought up the notion that the second time was not accidental.

Here is that early quote from earlier in the thread.

drjohncarpenter wrote:
The final performance of "One Night" from the first small combo set on June 27, 1968, which runs just under three minutes, should be the one to use. It was the one chosen by director Steve Binder, it is on the original soundtrack LP, and the vocal is out of this world. It doesn't matter if Presley accidentally unplugs his guitar for a moment, this was a live gig, and it helps make the moment.

Judging by the few seconds we have of the improv version of "One Night" from the first stand-up show, it may well have trumpeted any of the 3-sit down performances.

It's that good!

It's great, but incomplete, and the backing arrangement does not allow it to match what Elvis did on his own two days earlier.

Re: One Night - '68 Comeback Special versions

Sun Jun 30, 2013 1:41 am

You tracklist is great, Doc, for a career overview, but I was thinking of several lesser known gems and surprising alternate versions.. on 1 cd-r.

Just watched the opening of these stand-up shows again. I forgot that "One Night" was there. Man, there were some technical problems, weren't there? I admire the fact that Elvis, as nervous as he was, stays on top of things and never looses his head nor his cool. The band is not together, "Heartbreak Hotel" is off to a rocky start, later he has to help his guitar be taken off the stage etc. He had to be singer, dancer, comedian and roadie all at once. lol !There's no comparison to how meticulous things nowadays are planned and handled for big artists. Nothing's left to chance today when so much is involved. But here, there's a lot of spontaneity. Elvis was taking risks here, even if he could do it over again. His reputation was on the line. As a performer he was obviously raised in the tradition of the REAL performers that had to be ready for everything, having to be able to improvise when several things go wrong! Takes a lot of guts and self-confidence to stand there, almost naked in front of a live audience for the first time in 7 years, and remain in command the entire show..

Re: One Night - '68 Comeback Special versions

Sun Jun 30, 2013 2:54 am

I still believe the 3rd version of "one night" in the sitdown shows was the best even with the plug pulled.

I am sure someone could carefully edit that part out and create the ultimate version.

Where did promiseland go?

Carefully going over his "tapes" with a fine tuned comb?

Here is something a bit rare from my secret stash of VHS tapes.
This freeze frame is not good quality, but from footage that they did not include on the 3 disc set.
Elvis smoking!!! Oh geeze they couldn't let that out. Might destroy the image.

I just watched it, and if it happened, it must have been awfully low-key! It's not something that jumps out at you after the first time. Did he perhaps reference it, without it actually happening? Odd, cause I watched the shows on the anniversary. They fed back some of the gags from the first show. But I'm not sure the plug actually came out again. I wasn't looking for it though, so I would like to see it, if indeed it did. There are multiple rips of the shows on YouTube.

rjm (Elvis smoked those little cheap cigars all the time. What is REALLY interesting happens on June 30, as they finish off the ROAD sequence. The dancers are on the road, on either side of the double yellow line. And Elvis has a brief conversation with the yellow-shirted dancer. He told Yellow Shirt that he got drunk the night before! "Scared me," Elvis says. "You won't drink again," says Yellow Shirt. "Naw. it scared me," says Mr. Clean. BUT, I think he was just bragging. It upset Steve in the booth, as he sent the female dancer the wrong way across the double yellow lines. And at that, the muscular dark-skinned dancer breaks up laughing: "don't anybody say 'got drunk!'" And laughter all around, as they pull themselves together, and finish it. It is NOT transcribed on the booklet. Turn up the sound!!! Heck, rip it to your collection for your friend! LOL!)

On the DVD set, the camera's clearly show the plug coming out of the guitar at BOTH shows, during 'one night'.

Promiseland can confirm this because he says he has the 3-disc set...... yeah and pigs can fly across the sky.
