And THIS.....

Well, new to me (different day) June 20th and from Steve Binder's "Elvis : 68 at 40 Retrospective" book published by JAT in 2008. I was looking at the studio, seeing if there was anyone to recognize, and, there was Elvis. Complete with his slip-on shoes, white trousers and wearing glasses. Cool....!

Now called EASTWEST Recording studios, it's quite a place these days complete with a luxury VIP room, they can even supply you with a massage and a facial.

Elvis used Studio One

It would have looked more like this though 44 years ago.
