Today In History

October 21, 1956
Elvis was visited by Juan Juanico for a couple of days. Because of the many fans around the house they stayed inside for most of the time. However during the night Elvis and June did go out to see some newsreel footage at the local theater. Unfortunately fans saw the limousine and vandalized it.

Song Of The Day

"A huge disappointment to me. A medley of "When The Saints Go Marching In" and "Down By The Riverside" sounds like a great GREAT idea, especially to a New Orleans guy like myself, and having heard Elvis sing both on the Million Dollar Quartet recording only made it seem even a better possibility. But overall, the "Frankie and Johnny" recording of this is pretty dull, with almost no trace of any soul or gospel. When you hear the "Trouble With Girls" recording of "Swing Down Sweet Chariot", you can see that it was possible to do a great version of a gospel standard even in a bad Elvis movie. It really is a shame and a more obvious missed opportunity to have created the go-to version of a standard (Living in N.O. I hear both these tracks--not Elvis's version of course--pretty constantly.)"
