Audio Mixer: Dennis Ferrante. Liner Note Author: Colin Escott. Recording information: 06/27/1968.

During the most captivating segment of Elvis Presley's phenomenal 1968 television comeback special, Presley reunited with original band members Scotty Moore and D.J. Fontana. (Bass player Bill Black died in the mid-1960s.) To film that segment, Presley and the group performed two sets before a small, but rapt studio audience. A generous selection of performances from those concerts became available on video in 1985 under the title "Elvis: One Night With You," but RCA waited until 1998 to release TIGER MAN, a single CD of the performances. Surely, most rock and blues music aficionados who have ever seen "One Night With You" will not need much convincing to buy TIGER MAN. These performances quite simply capture Presley at his best, singing with a joy and fire absent from much of his 1960s output. At the same time, Presley is clearly giving it his all, as if trying to undo in one brief set all the damage that years of safe, mediocre movies did to his image. An unusual and stunning aspect is that Presley "swaps axes" - the electric guitar - with Moore early in the set. Instead of Moore's groundbreaking country-blues fusion guitar licks, we hear something completely new and unexpected. Presley's wild, thrashing, and incendiary rhythmic lead guitar playing reveals a side of Elvis Presley's musicianship previously unheard on disc. It is not something serious music fans want to miss, and it is displayed very well on this album.

He had played the electric guitar live before, on a very few occasions. And he played it on record both before and after the special.

But there is no other recorded evidence of THIS kind of playing. Moore is generous, giving his friend and bandmate room to shine, while he either gently fingerpicks or strums along with Presley, and Presley's strumming friend Charlie Hodge.
