LP # 1 has Side 1 backed with Side 4
LP # 2 has Side 2 backed with Side 3
I liked him as a person, admired him as
an entertainer. The warmth he generated
upon meeting him face to face twice in
my life was as fulfilling as watching my
two sons grow.
He knew who I was. He knew my sound
was compared to his, time and time
again. Yet, without animosity, he
welcomed me into his home and told me

His memory stored respectfully in my
If I had a wish, it would be to hear

Scotty Moore, D.J. Fontana,
and the Jordanaires
The singing and speaking voice on this recording is not that of Elvis Presley.
