 Bluesman Arthur “Big Boy” Crudup died today after a massive heart attack.  Crudup had six chart hits in the ’40s and performed with the likes of Sonny Boy Williamson, Elmore James, and Lightnin’ Hopkins. He was so discontented and broke from his music-business experiences that he quit in the ’50s to farm sweet potatoes in Mississippi. He was sixty-eight. He wrote ‘That’s All Right (Mama)’ and ‘My Baby Left Me’ that Elvis recorded at SUN.
Barbra Streisand attended the midnight show and met backstage with Elvis afterward. She offered him the costarring role in her upcoming remake of “A Star Is Born”. It is unclear whether Col Parker quashed it, or Elvis did owing to the second billing or the character suicide –  the role went to Kris Kristofferson.

‘See See Rider’ and a short ‘I Got A Woman/Amen’ warms up the crowd. You can tell this is going to be a good show with Elvis joking to the audience, “You’re going nuts and you’re just cracked up out there. Is something showing that shouldn’t be? !”

Elvis introduces himself as, “Good evening ladies and gentlemen, I’m Ann-Margret” before an astoundingly funny conversation with a member of the audience including the comments:

Female fan, “Don’t keep me waiting I love you, I love you.”
Elvis, “Honey there’s 2 thousand people listening to you, you know that don’t you?”
F.F, “I don’t care”
Elvis, “Ok! I’ve got a fever blister you know, so if you catch it … Don’t say I didn’t warn you”
F.F, “You can have anything I’ve got, so I will take anything that you’ve got!”
Elvis sounding a little flustered, “Whooo! Can you kill those lights for a minute?”.

It is a classic Elvis concert moment.!
