At the last minute there was a soundtrack session set up for Elvis’ new film, Harum Scarum. Due to the hurried manner in which the session was scheduled, Elvis’ regular accompanists were not available ant their places were taken by Charlie McCoy on guitar, Henry Strzelecki on bass and Kenny Buttrey on drums. They were joined by Rufus Long and Ralph Strobel on flute and oboe in order to lend A middle Eastern touch to the soundtrack.
This was Elvis’ first visit to a recording studio in 8 months and his distraction and disaffection with the material was obvious. He broke off at 3.30 a.m. after only 4 hours in which he did 38 dreary takes of Shake That Tambourine.

At one point in the night, Mama Cass asked Elvis (in a rather derisive way) ‘Why do you do this? Why do you sing these same gospel songs over and over like this?’ Instead of being offended, Elvis asked her if she had ever tried it…ever tried singing a song with a gospel quartet backing her up. She laughed and said that she had not. He challenged her to try it just once. After some hesitation and cajoling, she finally decided she knew the words to Amazing Grace and would sing it. She did and The Imperials fell in and provided back up harmonies. They sang it all the way through and when she finished, she turned to Elvis and told him that having those voices surround hers as she sang was the most indescribable feeling she had ever experienced. She said ‘Now I get it. Now I understand why this means so much to you’.

King Creole Production: Elvis went to the birthday party for Jan Shepard, who played his sister in the movie. He showed up with a stuffed tiger on his shoulders that he had named Danny Boy, after the song he had often sung on the set. He also gave Shepard a movie camera, with which home movies of the party were shot.

This was the day Elvis was supposed to report to United Artists in Hollywood for the start of production on Clambake. The Colonel realized it would be almost impossible to get Elvis away from his new ranch, so he had arranged for the cast insurance exam to take place at 5.30 p.m. at RCA’s Studio B in Nashville, where soundtrack recording was now scheduled to take place. Elvis arrived in a rented Learjet and after discussing song selection for the film, recorded until 6.00 a.m. the next morning. It was obvious to all present that Elvis had little interest in the movie songs. Except for You Don’t Know Me, on which he expended 21 takes. However Elvis was still not satisfied with the result and would re-record the song later.
Still at American, recording went on, but this time only from 7.30 until 10.30 p.m. and only 1 song and 1 instrumental track were completed.

2017 Tupelo Elvis Festival: The 2017 Tupelo Elvis Festival theme has been released after the artwork was unveiled on Monday.
This year it will be held on June 1-4, 2017, to celebrate the life and music of Tupelo’s native son, Elvis Presley.
The artwork was created by Tupelo resident Sue Scruggs. The artist created a Hawaiian-themed image that includes a variety of bright and tropical blues, greens and pinks accompanied with a center-focus on the guitar. The vintage inspired image reflects Elvis’ movie years and the 90-minute special Elvis: Aloha From Hawaii via Satellite.
Scruggs, longtime Tupelo resident, trained in the impressionist style of art in Como, Italy. She has a degree in art from David Lipscomb College in Nashville, Tennessee. The Tupelo Elvis Festival is entering its nineteenth year. The festival has been named a Top 20 Event by the Southeast Tourism society

By now it was clear to everyone that the 4 men who jumped on stage the day before were nothing more than over stimulated fans, Elvis became convinced that they had been sent by Priscilla’s boyfriend, Mike Stone. Elvis raged to all the guys and made accusations that it was Stone who broke up his marriage and that he was now trying to take his daughter away from him as well. In his anger Elvis even thought of killing Stone, but when he finally calmed down several days later, the idea abandoned.

Four men jumped on stage toward the end of Elvis’ performance at the midnight show in Las Vegas. Several members of the entourage rushed to defend Elvis.
However it was Elvis himself who knocked one of the men back into the audience. When order was finally restored, Elvis told the audience: “I’m sorry, ladies and gentlemen. I’m sorry I didn’t break his goddamned neck is what I’m sorry about.”

Elvis Gets Ovation For One Punch

By The Associated Press
Syracuse Herald-Journal
February 22, 1973

Elvis Presley got a standing ovation during a show here – but it wasn’t for his singing. Presley was on stage at the Las Vegas Hilton when four men climbed out of the crowd of 1,750, interrupting his act. A hotel spokesman said Presley used a karate-like chop to knock one of the men from the stage. A band member tackled another and the remaining two left quickly. The crowd gave a big ovation. The men were booked for investigation of drunkness, but Clark County sheriff’s deputies said Presley did not press charges. No injuries were reported.

Elvis had returned to Colorado with the idea of buying a vacation home but returned to Memphis almost immediately after his Denver police friends attempted to talk to him about his increasingly erratic behavior.
Elvis performed at the Carolina Coliseum, Columbia, South Carolina.
