So you're saying this topic needs to be a permanent sticky of some kind?

I don't want to sound narcistic, but I noticed that you hadn't included the thread I created for "Paralyzed". It's not that long, but drjohncarpenter's contributions to that topic (and especially on Otis Blackwell's contributions to Elvis' catalog) are too good to miss out on!

'All I could do was stand there...

It's an incredibly generous effort of you to compile a thread like this Mike! Enjoying a few of them now.

If any of you created more interesting topics about Elvis' songs, music, sessions or musicians that are worth remembering, please let me now. I can put them in the spotlight thread. Many topics should be remembered and easier to find imo.

Perhaps you could add the phrase, "Incredible new CD set due from MRS!!!" to the header. That's always worked in the past.
