Elvis in R.C.A studio in Nashville, shown with fans:
The result of this session was stunning, not only the intended song, but Big Boss Man as well. Unfortunately there was a big fight about the rights of publishing, the Col demanding, Elvis silent and so Reed, song writer and guitarist, stormed out. The session went on till 5.30 a.m. but the atmosphere was ruined.
Guitar Man would be Elvis’ last of eleven #1 Country hits, but did not crack the Billboard Top 40.
