Sunday Sessions – Elvis Presley and the Bee Gees

Nothing like a little Elvis Presley on a Sunday morning.  He can be energetic one minute and mellow the next, but his voice, even at its worst, is incredibly vibrant.  Another Saturday Night is a concert that took place on June 7, 1975 in Shreveport and it finds Elvis in a playful mood with a lot of stage banter going on among the many hits.  When he gets reflective on Why Me Lord and soulful on American Trilogy, you cannot help but be moved.  Long live the King.

In 1975, the Bee Gees would perform on the classic Soundstage series in Chicago.  They would power through much of their 60s output as well as some of the songs they would record in the 70s.  Jive Talkin’ would be the only ‘disco’ hit that would make the set, simply because it was the only one they had written up to this point as it was before the Stayin’ Alive album.  Great harmonies and great songs, not much more you could ask for.
