Elvis - february 1


Elvis performed in "The High School", Randolph, Mississippi.


After a few hours sleep, Elvis rides to Trenton, New Jersey for a radio interview with WAAT DJ Don Latkin.


There was a recording session from 10.00 a.m. to 7.00 p.m. However,
Elvis was very disappointed that Sholes hadn't been able to contact Leiber and Stoller.
The whole session was a disaster. The A-side of his next single Wear My Ring Around Your Neck was cut, but not like Elvis wanted it to be and the 48 takes of Doncha' Think It's Time were not much better either. Steve Sholes was very disappointed that he had not been able to store up any kind of backlog for the 2 years that Elvis would be away.


Elvis took Joe Esposito and Anita Wood to Tupelo to show them his hometown.
In the field behind his birthplace they found that the sign declaring it to be the future site of the Elvis Presley Youth Center had fallen down and no work had been done toward construction of either the building or the swimming pool for which Elvis donated $14,000 from his 1957 Tupelo performance.


Priscilla gave birth to a baby girl ( Lisa Marie ) at Baptist Hospital in Memphis at 5.01 p.m. while Elvis and other members of the entourage wait in a doctor's lounge specially set aside for their use.
Elvis was so nervous before leaving the house that his grandmother reminded him that it was Priscilla, not he, who was having the baby. A special detail of Memphis police, paid for by Elvis, would stand by at the hospital over the next 4 days.


The whole group was in Aspen and celebrated Lisa Marie's first birthday
