since this tune entered my life, about a year ago,it has been my obssession, i've collected together about 10 other versions, including the original by Jim Pepper & a live bootleg recording from 3 years ago by Plush. Based around a red indian chant, it's trance like beauty propels the listener to the nearest faraway place, the white vocal harmony performance has never been beaten by anyone, beach boys included. Check out the Brewer and Shipley version too.

being a recent vistor to this wonderous site, i am slightly shocked by the lack of E.P. This song is the finale of the 68 comeback special, and proves that this white boy can rip the shit out of any ' niggar' gospel singer. This is Presley's greatest vocal performance
