Polk Salad Annie - Last Time Spoken Intro Used?

Post by Mike C »

Cisco,

For the 1971 winter vegas season, I know that Elvis stopped using the spoken word intro for Polk Salad Annie (i.e., "Some y'all never been down south too much..."). However, I think he resurrected it later on that year, if I recall.

Do you know the last time he used the spoken intro for a live show?

Thanks,

We heard the spoken intro at Tuscaloosa on 11/14/71, but not at any of the other shows we attended.

IMO, when the speed of the song slowed back down later on the spoken intro should been reintroduced.
