SOUNDTRACK RECORDING SESSION (Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer) "Treat Me Nice"

Radio Recorders, Studio 1, 7000 Santa Monica Boulevard, Hollywood, California. (10:00 am - 12:00 noon)

Producer: Jeff Alexander.

Engineer: Thorne Nogar.

Recording Assistant: Jim Malloy.

Musicians: Guitar & Vocals: Elvis Presley - Electric Guitar: Scotty Moore - Bass: Bill Black - Drums: D.J. Fontana - Piano: Dudley Brooks.

Backup Vocals: The Jordanaires: 1st Tenor: Gordon Stoker  - 2nd Tenor: Neal Matthews - Baritone: Hoyt Hawkins - Bass: Hugh Jarrett.

 

Soundtrack recording was booked at Radio Recorders for the whole day, but Elvis walked out shortly before lunch when the executive-in-charge (Jeff Alexander) tried to cut off a gospel jam with the Jordanaires. Jamming was the normal way Elvis and the band relaxed before work. The executive on the other hand had a bureaucratic clock-watching way of doing things. Elvis also believed that good music was created with a feeling and he would do anything to get that feel.

Songs recorded:

The Colonel wrote and told Elvis that he had been "Bombarded, befuddled, befogged, bewildered and snowed under" with requests from RCA for Presley to appear on their NBC spectacular. He further wrote: "They have told me everything under the sun how good this would be for you, for exposure (and have) come up with pretty good offers several times, but I turned them all down with respect to our motion picture for reasons I know are best for us. I told them that our next TV show for any sponsor we would do would be $50,000, as I want to do one or two TV shows this year, and with a set up we would blast the whole country with... They say we will never get it from no one. Well, maybe we won't (but) at least you will not be overexposed like some of the top stars that are now working for nothing as they are worn out on TV. He is writing so that Elvis will "know what is going on. Please indicate by marking Yess (sic) if you think you should work cheaper, or nuts if you think I should keep snowing for the $50,000. I will guide myself either way you want to go. "Yes", if you want to cut the price, "nuts" if we battle to go on getting top money".

I do what I want, I can't change and I won't change. Colonel Parker is like a daddy when I'm away from my own folks. On the other hand, the Colonel doesn't meddle in my affairs... and never butts into my recording sessions".

Thanks a million. My best to all.

Sincerely,

Elvis Presley".
