Your song

Supposedly Elvis recorded this song at RCA-Victor on June 6, 1970 but no proof has been found, except that 2 matrixnumbers i.e. ZPA4-1611 & ZPA4-1612 are a mystery as these are not documented in the series ZPA4-1593 up to and including ZPA4-1628 used for Elvis' sessions June 4 to 8, 1970.
On June 6, 1970 Tony Joe White recorded at the same studio as Elvis, except Elvis recorded at night and Tony Joe White during the day. Perhaps these 2 matrixnumbers were used for 2 of Tony Joe White's recordings?

There is no proof Elvis recorded this song.


This concludes the information about rumoured titles.
Some were just one-liners during a live-concert, others were complete songs but audience recorded, hence the sound quality is not suitable for an official release, although there is a good chance these songs will be released on the fan-label Follow That Dream a.k.a. FTD.
