Till I Waltz Again With You

Post by charroman »

By Teresa Brewer and written by Sid Prosen the song Till I Waltz Again With You would not seem to have cropped up again in the Elvis story beyond mention of him singing it at Humes High. I believe Elvis referred to it after he became famous but it seems it was not picked up by him again and I don't think I have seen reference to it in any of the live shows 54/55.
Its interesting that Teresa Brewer also had Pledging My Love out as a single in 1955

I used to have a version by UK rock n roll revivalist Shakin Stevens from around 1978 that was actually pretty good and the only version of it I had heard to that point. (Stevens did it like the fast rock n roll versions of Mona Lisa but with a horn section honking away in the background.)

Thanks Mike from Holland. I have not heard Shaky's version for years.

Teresa Brewer is an interesting figure - like Rosemary Clooney, her career can be viewed as being in two halves - and one that not only crops up very early in the Elvis story, but also at the very end. She had recorded For the Heart with Felton Jarvis at the helm in 1975 for an album, and Elvis's version is based on that. Brewer's has the lightness of touch that Elvis's sadly didn't have. She also released a version of Dark Moon in 1957, a song that Elvis recorded at home in the mid-1960s.

My mum had a Brewer best of LP when I was a kid, and I couldn't stand it, and not much has changed with regards to her 50s hits. Much to cute for my liking. Interestingly, though, after her career has a hitmaker. she re-emerged as a jazz singer, making fairly memorable albums with Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Earl Hines, Stephane Grapelli among others. The liner notes to those suggest that this was a sudden change in styles, but she'd actually recorded a jazz album as early as 1958, and an album of torch songs in 1959, before regularly recording standards through the 1960s on her albums.

Not sure if this has been posted before, but I thought it was a wonderful historical story:

(Thanks to Spa Guy for his narration and to Zach Peddie for his performance.) EP's own words are very interesting to hear.

And here is the original version of Peddie's performance:


I sure wish EP's version had been recorded for all of us to hear too. At the very least, it's nice to consider how things might have been. smt201

Think maybe the Shaky version was based on a Bill Reeder version which is very similar to Carl Manns Mona Lisa.

I recorded this song at Sun Studios with Matt Ross Spang for the Soundtrack of the Elvis based Indie movie " Nobody". I did alot of research to come as close as I could to what I thought Elvis would of done. It was a great experience.

That mp4 is from a YouTube "Spa Guy" video. That's not Elvis singing . . .

Some of the information is also incorrect. A full slate of research with a TON of new information is here:


Humes High Talent Show 1953 --> There Were Two?

You also hear a bit more of Elvis' memory on this seminal period, part of the 1972 chat at MGM for "Elvis On Tour."

I'd like to share what we recorded at Sun Studios in Memphis one night a few years back. As a singer/actor/songwriter, This has to be one of my favorite things that I have been a part of in my career out of the many things I have done. It was very well made Elvis based Indie short movie called "NOBODY" This was masterfully directed by my good friend, The brilliant Mr. Bill Bryan and on the lead role our buddy Drake Milligan.The session was engineered by the extremely talented and very nice guy Grammy award winning Mr. Matt Ross-Spang who mixes and masters alot of Elvis' projects for RCA and I supplied the lead Elvis vocals for this wonderful project. I hope you guys enjoy. Thank you.We all had a blast! (YOUTUBE LINK BELOW)

You were a fitting choice for the "Nobody" soundtrack, Tigerman32837. I was in Memphis for Elvis Week when "Nobody" screened at Graceland in 2014. What's the status of the short film these days? Is it available online?

Hey! Thanks alot! Much appreciated. Not sure what the status is nowadays. Best bet is to try to contact Director William Bryan I'd say.

Yeah, there used to be a website for “Nobody” and director William Bryan was active on Facebook. That’s no longer the case but maybe somebody will have success obtaining a status report on the film.
