I Didn't Make It on Playing Guitar
Words & Music:
, first released on
This is such a fun jam recording and I've never skipped it. Elvis was truly enjoying this jam performance and it shows. Elvis certainly could have written proper lyrics to this tune, but that just wasn't meant to be.
What a great great Jam! What a spontaneous feeling! What a brutal rendition! What a power! So strong Elvis is in his guitar and vocal "inputs". I just love this! Here we can see the real Mr. Presley doing what he likes best, and not Elvis Presley doing what the others tell him to do! My King!
Elvis on acoustic guitar singing the title. It's got a drive. Elvis could've written proper lyrics to this one.
