Shows and Performances

Unplugged Show

"One Night With You" was the name of the "UNPLUGGED sit down" show, June 27 1968, 18:00 hrs, in Burbank, California. After 7 years of filming and a total of 33 motion pictures, Elvis, in his black leather outfit, returned to the stage. Visibly nervous, he performed for an audience of 180 of his personal friends. On that Thursday evening at 18:00 hrs, the taping for the NBC - TV Special 1968 began.

This night was preceded by 2 months of rehearsals with 5 musicians, among them Scotty Moore and D.J. Fontana (both of them were in the "Sun Records Studio" in Memphis, TN with Elvis back in July 1954 to help him record his first single, "That's All Right Mama"). The songs Elvis presented were a mixture of Hill- and Rockabilly, Rhythm and Blues, Rock 'n' Roll, Country, and, surprisingly, one Christmas Song.

Elvis, using a Gibson J200 Acoustic guitar during the NBC Special, opened the show with "That's All Right Mama". Among others, songs included "Heartbreak Hotel", "Love Me", "Baby What You Want Me To Do", "Blue Suede Shoes", "Are You Lonesome Tonight", "One Night", and "Tiger Man". The final song of the show was Mac Davies' "Memories" during which Elvis, accompanied by partial playback, reminisced about his life.
