All Shook Up

There are a lot of discussions / speculations on several messageboards and newsgroups as to why the song "All Shook Up" wasn't included on the July 1st, 2004 release "Polk Salad Annie". The webmaster from the FECC site asked Ernst Jorgensen why it wasn't included. His answer: "As for "All Shook Up" - very simple - It wasn't recorded, just like "I Got A Woman" wasn't recorded in it's entirity. Strange, but true!".

Hi ijustcanthelpbelieven, All shook up was recorded too in Houston Austrodome Concert, in 27th. february, 1970. The highlights includes blue suede shoes, walk a mile in my shoes/in the ghetto, suspicious minds, i cant stop loving you, release me, kentucky rain and others. A very good concert. I dont know about sound quality. I would like to know why it was not released until today, by FTD, of course. Some day FTD put it out... Who knows...?? It is a good option to do release.

According Joe Tunzi, Elvis Sessions II - Book, All Shook Up was not recorded, yeah it is a shame... but true and there is not miracle. But all shook up there is in a soundboard format. We know that the oppening night, 26 january 1970, was recorded and this show includes highlights like True Love Travel on a Gravel Road, the first live performance of Kentucky Rain, Polk Sallad Annie, Sweet Caroline and Dont Cry Daddy. Maybe some day FTD decided put it out.

What remains a mystery is why RCA assigned a master matrix number to "All Shook Up," with their notes indicating it was apparently recorded during the Feb. 16, 1970 D.S.

I really don´t believe it. They had the chance to record his concerts in that time from "All Shook Up" to "Can´t Help Falling In Love". What a shame... Anyway, the songs are great in this release, and sure: It will be in my Elvis´ Collection...

I did suspect this to be the reason. It's a shame that none of the shows recorded by RCA are complete, but at least we have the soundboard tapes that give us a fuller picture of the shows Elvis was performing on his second Vegas engagement.
