I recently gave my worn copy of the 1971 Mac Davis album "I Believe In Music" a spin - included is his rendition of his own composition of "A Little Less Conversation" (co-written with Billy Strange). I think it's kinda cool, really funky stuff. Sorry for the sound quality, just like I said, the copy is worn.

Couldn't find it on youtube (Germany), so I couldn't post a link to it.

Thanks luckyjackson1 Nice to hear, particularly the verse Elvis completely cuts out.

Thanks, Lucky! Also, thanks for the digi-version, elvissessions.
I can see what he was going for with Aretha in mind, but people might have seen it as a bit too similar to her biggest stuff. With Elvis, it's incredibly aggressive, and astounding. It needed more production, though, which happened around 10 years ago. It HAD to hit, sometime!
This is fascinating, to see how he is writing through the "idea" of another singer, even if he didn't realize it would be Elvis.
rjm (Elvis changed "woman" to "girl" -- and it works! Adds to the aggressive sensuality.)

Thanks for the "clean" version, elvissessions.
No doubt I like Elvis' version better (all four of 'em) but somehow it's kinda cool, even though a little "stiff", maybe.

That's cool. I have it on an old Mac Davis album.
