I am going to jabber about the great movies Elvis made from time to time. My boy Vince will chime in as well on them as he feels the need. I have to start with one of my all time favorites and the movie that inspired this blogs name. CLAMBAKE! This movie is one of my favorites for some reason but I couldn't tell you why. The script is not that great. The music is not that much better either. You can tell by watching it Elvis had lost all interest in the crap he was being given. With all that I still love this movie. The big part is Elvis of course. I am a fan of most everything he did and enjoy it all. Shelly Fabares is one of my all time favorite leading lady's of Elvis films. This was like the second Elvis movie I ever owned. I have seen it probably over 500 times. I still laugh every time I see it. The song You Don't Know Me is pretty good. Hey, Hey, Hey and How Can You Lose What You Never Had all two of my favorite songs from this movie as well.
I have recently got the album AN AFTERNOON IN THE GARDEN. Elvis played Madison Square Garden in June of 1972. It was the first time Elvis had ever performed in concert in New York. June 9-11 Elvis would play four shows there. On Saturday Elvis was to preform two shows. RCA planned on recording them for an album to be released fallowing the stint in NY. RCA ended up taking the second show and adding three songs from the afternoon and releasing the album we know as ELVIS AS RECORDED AT MADISON SQUARE GARDEN. Almost a half a century later they finally released the material from the afternoon show in AN AFTERNOON IN THE GARDEN. This is one of the best live shows I have listened to in a long time. You can tell the energy was off the charts and Elvis gives a hell of a show. From start to finish this is gold. My favorites from this performance are You Don't Have To Say You Love Me,Reconsider Baby,For The Good Times, and I Can't Stop Loving You. Reconsider Baby being the real standout for me. I would suggest running out and getting this CD If you are an Elvis fan and don't have it in your collection yet. You will not be disappointed.
