Today In History

May 25, 1966
Elvis left for Nashville at 1.00 a.m. on a rented Greyhound. At Studio B Elvis met his new producer, Felton Jarvis. According to Chet Atkins, Felton's temperament would suit Elvis better. Felton was already a big fan of Elvis.
This was the first time in more than 2 years that Elvis was in the studio to record something else than soundtracks.
He had to deliver 2 singles, a Christmas single and a gospel album. Elvis worked form 10.00 p.m. to 7.00 a.m. on this first night. He concentrated on the album How Great Thou Art, but recorded Tomorrow Is A Long Time from Bob Dylan as well.
