Justin, Bec and Olivia's discussion on Elvis's 1969 live album "In Person at the International" concludes this week as they dig into the back half of the album, where Elvis focused largely on more contemporary material.
While Bec has words about "Words," Justin brings to light a possible new insight/discovery about the single version of "Suspicious Minds," inspired by hearing the lengthy live version here.
Then, for Song of the Week, Olivia waves a flag for "School Days," the Chuck Berry classic that Elvis & the Joe Guercio Orchestra often featured during band introductions between 1975-1977. Bec confesses that Elvis's mournful 1966 ballad singing has got her feeling "Indescribably Blue." Lastly, inspired by the inclusion of "Unchained Melody" in the Baz Luhrmann trailer, Justin close out with Elvis's home recording of Roy Hamilton's version of "If I Loved You," originally from the Rodgers & Hammerstein musical "Carousel."
