Let Us Now Praise James Burton Pt. 2

Well, the Boogie Woogie Flu was launched a year ago today. After a year in Fluville, I find it fitting to once again listen to Elvis, being that it is his birthday today as well, and while he never made it to seventy-three, I really never planned for this blog to make it to one - but responsibility calls so we'll pay tribute to the King, and listen to James Burton and the TCB band backing up the big E.


"See See Rider" mp3
"Suspicious Minds" mp3
"In The Ghetto" mp3
by Elvis Presley

"Promised Land"
"You Asked Me To" mp3
"Polk Salad Annie" mp3

"Poke A Little Sock Salad" mp3

(this mp3 has a few flaws, but the performance transcends its imperfections)

Happy Birthday Elvis.

To be continued...

Cheers Ted, I'm so glad you waste your talent doing this. I would never have found your photography unless you had lured me (via Wreckless Eric in a weird way) through this blog.
And indeed, let us now give thanks for Burton.

thanks everyone for the well wishes.
anthony, i'm assuming the "weird way"
you refer to is via amy.

Talk about treasure ... are you even alive? I can only imagine what you've done and where you're headed. Rub a little of that tinkle tinkle treasure on the rest of us.

melissa, i'm intrigued by your comment. you seem to speak in some kind of coded language. last time i checked i had a pulse. i'm not sure where i'm headed or what type of tinkle tinkle refer to, but i'll be happy to pass it along when i get there.
