|Here's yet another video clip that was just begging to be giffed. It features Elvis in|
his final film 'Elvis On Tour'. And it's in this very clip that we see what must be the last
time on film that Elvis broke into a sweat and gave the fans their dollars worth.
The following year in 1973 was of course the last big gig, Aloha Hawaii via Satellite
which was beamed live around the world. After that began the great physical
decline and Elvis died at the age of 42 in August 1977, 40 years ago this month.
Polk Salad Annie is the song being performed here. A tune composed and originally
sung by Tony Joe White. And it's clear to see that Elvis is enjoying himself as the
song reaches a big climax. And the bass solo by Jerry Scheff isn't bad either.
