That's your brain tease for today! Go back to your comic books now.
For someone who is an "expert," how can you promulgate that Elvis didn't know he was being recorded?
Er, uh, hate to break the news to ya Doc, but while Elvis didn't expect the "dirty version" to be released, he DID know he was being recorded. He was in a recording studio attempting to lay down a master take when he began talking dirty.
Need more proof that you are wrong? This dirty version of "Only the Strong Survive" has a take number. Therefore, the studio engineer would have slated the take number over the talkback mic in the control studio, which Elvis would have heard over his headphones. This was a take--and a take committed to tape. Elvis knew he was being recorded.
BTW, I'm not so sure the fellow who started the thread is "overtly bigoted," as you claim. Let's give him the benefit of the doubt.
I've seen lots of CDs on eBay which are imported from Japan, yet they are often abbreviated as "Jap" to minimize space occupied by eBay's character subject word title count. Maybe of the author of the thread was just abbreviating? Before you criticize and accuse, walk a mile in his shoes...
