SM (my favorite Elvis song and one of my favs of all time from any artist) reached #1 in November 1969. That was the same month that Brook Benton recorded another all-time fav of mine: "Rainy Night in Georgia." Brook Benton is not only one of my favorite singers of all time (I'm only 31 mind you) but he was one of Elvis' favs too. Elvis sang a one-liner from this song in the On Tour movie and allegedly was set to record this great tune, written by the same guy who wrote "Polk Salad Annie," in 1977. November 1969 was a great month!

He almost did ... he cut "It's A Matter Of Time" at RCA Hollywood in 1972.

It would have been part of a nice full album in 1972, if Elvis had continued as he did at RCA Hollywood in late March 1972. All the musicians recall how focused he was on his work. Even the production is nice -- no overblown backing vocals or inappropriate string overdubs, no over-singing by Elvis, everyone just delivers.
