I’m re-reading a two-volume biography of Elvis Presley by the famed rock & roll writer Peter Guralnick and in one part of the book Elvis’ father, Vernon, supposedly wanted Elvis to record “From a Jack to a King.” I only knew the lead-in line and it started going round and round in my head, you know how that goes.
It’s a great bio, by the way.
Originally recorded by the author, Ned Miller. I don’t believe Elvis ever did get around to recording it (correction – Elvis did indeed record it.).
