Monday, 21 February 2011: Guitar Man cupcakes at the Petrol Station

On this day in 1967, Elvis Presley began recording the soundtrack to the movie Clambake.  The first track on that album was a cover of Jerry Reed‘s “Guitar Man.” On this date in 1981, a remix of The King’s version of the song hit #43 on the UK charts;  Jerry Reed was 43 at the time.  Coincidence?  I think not.  It just gives you goosebumps, doesn’t it?
