That is not true. When the second record comment returned, it was before the Mystery Train/Tiger Man medley, which only lends weight to the argument that Elvis was referring to Mystery Train and not Tiger Man from the outset, but had somehow got mixed up.Domino wrote: ↑Thu Apr 08, 2021 8:57 pmRight for a short time in 1969 his monologue bit included the 8mm film ,but then it was gone .Never returned.pmp wrote: ↑Thu Apr 08, 2021 4:45 pmAnd how many times did he tell the story about the underground 8mm film in 1969 shows. It surely couldn't be a joke if he mentioned that many times, right? So, do you believe that, too?
But the second record bit returned 2 years later and amazingly was the same record that was being called the second record.
This poor singer with the faulty memory was able to recall part of his monologue when all he had to do was remember the lyrics to his songs.Or maybe it wasn't recalling part of his monologue. Maybe he was recalling a memory .A memory that never changed from year to year.
Maybe all he did wrong was leave out the words "was going to be" .
Either way, as I repeat for the umpteenth time, nobody is arguing about the notion that it was tried out at Sun. It more than likely was. What they arguing with is the following from the opening post:
There is absolutely no evidence or proof or likelihood that Phillips pressed acetates and that it was pencilled in as the second record. Nothing.Somehow, though, Elvis, Scotty and Bill must have cut a version of "Tiger Man" as a possible follow-up to "That's All Right" (Sun 209), and then producer Sam Phillips pressed acetates for evaluation. Thus the origin of Elvis' "second record" that "not too many people heard" reference.
But hey, the Doc won't retract it because he likes the attention the thread receives every six months when he comes along to needlessly resurrect it.
