Thanks, Robin. I don't so much ruffle 'em as pluck 'em. They know.rjm wrote:Because I know you like to ruffle feathers.

It's great to have you back! And I mean that.
OK. Back on topic. Here's how I see it:
1972 - Elvis reconfirms, in a matter of fact manner, that "Tiger Man" was the "second record" that he "ever recorded".
1970 - Elvis refers to "Tiger Man" as the second record he ever recorded, and gives a cryptic clue that "not too many people heard it.....". This is because one of the few people that had "heard it" shows up, hangs around for a while and sparks Elvis' memory.
1968 - More of a statement of intent. After years in the "wilderness", Elvis is telling us that, contrary to what we may have heard, he is the still the king of the jungle!
1953/4 - After recording "My Happiness" at Sun with Marion Keisker at the helm, and whilst waiting hopefully for Sam Phillips to contact him, Elvis made a second record, the second that he ever recorded, at another recording service. This is outside the box, but totally plausible. As Ernst Jorgensen noted, after Elvis recorded "My Happiness", "...weeks and months went by and he heard nothing.......he couldn't stand it anymore......."
Yeah? Why is that, exactly. Please elaborate.drjohncarpenter wrote:Yeah, too bad it doesn't work.mike edwards66 wrote:OK. Outside the box notion. When Elvis said "that was my second record, that I ever recorded" he was speaking literally.
