KOSMOS's VINYL of the Week:
This week we are back at Sun Recording Studios, 706 Union Ave, Memphis on the 21st July 1955 for Elvis Presley's version of "Tryin' To Get To You" first released on the debut Elvis Presley LP on the 136h March 1956 on RCA...
"Although recorded at Sun, this cover of The Eagles' (a DC based R'n'B vocal group) 1954 b-side, was released after Elvis had moved to RCA. It must have been dear to him as he recorded it twice at Sun in 1955, this being the 2nd version. Then, many years later, on the 1968 TV Comeback Special, a black leather clad Elvis performed it in the round, wiping away any concern that The King had lost his mojo - it's worth checking out.
Some people get hit by lightning and a few actually become lightning, my life without Elvis Presley's influence is unimaginable." KV
