This is a book that is long overdue.

some years back a Memphis radio station WRVR took my telephone call and a DJ broadcast my request live on air. The song requested was Leiber and Stoller's "Don't", by Elvis Presley.

It's a lovely ballad hardly ever heard on radio.

As a young child "Don't" was one of my very favorite ELVIS tunes. I always loved ELVIS' ballads best even from the beginning.

Thanksamillion Carole. What a great list of photos on that video. Elvis sounds fantastic on that recording.

It is ELVIS we should thank...what a blessing he was to our young ears...(and eyes)...and even now it is so easy and such a pleasure to look back...it seems like only yesterday to me.:)

Know that song well, remember it from my "childhood" and recently burned it onto a CD for my car. Yes, it all seems like yesterday....with DVD's and youtube it is almost like he is alive...then reality hits. We lost so much that day in August.
