1969

1969 was a great year for Elvis. He recorded some great material in the first two months of the year in Memphis. These sessions, run by Chips Moman were responsible for ensuring that the promise that began with the TV Special was not lost. Better albums and singles were appearing in the charts more frequently. Later in the year he finally re-engaged with the public by returning to live performing. Throughout the month of August, completing two shows a night to sell out crowds. One of the songs he sang live was "Suspicious Minds" which became his first number one record since 1962. He reached his usual quota of releasing three movies and committed himself to more live performing over the next few years.

 

This was also the year that Charles Manson came to the public's attention after the Tate/LaBianca murders in Hollywood.
