return of the king

Funny thing, I wasn't a fan of elvis until the mid-eighties. I had heard Elvis' music and seen all of his movies through out my childhood. I just didn't think much of him. I guess I just couldn't get past the teens swooning, and the formulaic movies, and those crazy costumes through out the seventies.

One night I was working at Eckerd drugs and MTV was playing Elvis' 68 Comeback Special. My mouth dropped. I had never seen the special - never heard of it's existence. It was the first time I had ever seen and heard Elvis like this. I became a late fan of his. Before the Comeback Special, Elvis Presley was just a strange character - but that night I saw his energy and talent shine. This is Elvis at his best.
