Blues,  Oldies

One for the King

Well before I plop myself in front of the TV this weekend, tune in to AMC, and watch some quality Elvis movies (GI Blues, Paradise Hawaiian Style, Girls! Girls! Girls! to name a few), I have to pay my respects to the King on his 70th birthday. Here’s a great blues tune recorded in 1960 after his return from the Army. ‘Reconsider Baby’ was composed and performed originally by Lowell Fulson in 1954 (that’s the fella pictured below).

Happy Birthday Elvis.
