Funky Friday - Southern Soul

Every Friday is Funky Friday on Planet Mondo, and this week brings you an Elvis special to mark his 72nd birthday earlier this week.

First up a couple of youtube treats.

"Man That's Dirty"

This outtake from the '68 Special is the absolute essence of Elvis and crackles with magic. While the offstage boffins were making technical tweaks and possibly 'checking levels' between takes, Elvis asks for his guitar, kicks off the riff for 'Baby What You Want Me To Do' the orchestra jump in, start jamming and the audience go wild.

PS - Does anyone know what model of guitar Elvis is cranking? - I'm stumped.

"Some a y'all never been down south too much"

Bill Belew who did 'wardrobe' for the '68 Special, also created Elvis's jumpsuits. This is one of his earlier, less fussy designs and a style later reworked by The Osmonds, Evel Knievel David Bowie and possibly the crew of Moonbase Alpha. Elvis delivers a true blue eyed Soul stomping, Vegas vamp version of 'Polk Salad Annie'.

A duet of 'Polk Salad Annie' performed by Tony Joe White (its composer) with Johnny Cash is here if you fancy a peep.

This hidden sizzler from Elvis has everything you want from a fatback track - funky keyboards, a shout of "Hot Damn" and double tempo drums on the home run.

A live almost Booker T type take of 'My Babe'.

Written by Gamble and Huff, the masterminds behind the The O Jays, The Three Degrees and The Sound of Phildelphia 'Only The Strong Survive' is a Northern Soul nugget with Elvis sounding exactly like The Six Million Dollar Man on the spoken intro.

The Elvis Axe. It's a Hagstrom Viking II.

Do I win a prize?

Mondo said...

LEB - Top Work, that Fender type head was throwing me. I've just googled the H V II and found all the info on how Elvis came to play it here. In the tradition of Marvel Comics - you win a 'No Prize'. Your shiny new blog's looking tip top too.

Damn! Thought I'd get in 1st with the Hagstrom answer. Good work as always Dude.
Any kudos for suggesting its a rip off of the 1966 Guild Starfire? No? Fair enough.

Gawd bless 'im.

ahhh than you verry much...

that 68 comeback special is one of the best bits of telly ever. i get far to excited and spoil it for everyone with too many ' oh this bits brilliant... this is that ace bit where he...' and a million whooopsand bad singing along.
these areace - thankyou

Mondo said...

56's Have you checked out Hagstrom prices? Don't. You'll only start tempting yourself (£350ish) on Ebay.
*off stage cries off "how much?"*

Ally - it is magic isn't it, try and pick up the special edition DVD that came out a couple of years ago - It's packed with ALL the footage filmed for the show - stunning.

56 special.

I'd say more of a rip off of a Fender Coronado or a Gibson Trini Lopez meself ;)

Mondo said...

I could be tempted with a Fender Coronado but picked up one of these at the weekend a Danelectro Pro in peach - what a winner it out tele's a tele incredible. May look a bit a retro space age but an absolute belter with tons of twang and great build quality too.

Axe Victim said...

Looks great Mondo, I'm looking forward to a bit of an in depth review and maybe hear some sounds?

Mondo said...

AV - Don't start me on logging and blogging my guitars. That'd be a whole 'nother blog. You can taste test Danelectro sound files here
here . It's not the same model as mine - it's a type still used by Mick Jagger onstage today , and should sound roughly the same as they all use those crazy Danelectro lipstick p'ups.

The 63 model is being reissued April -May this year, but all reissues are for a limited period, so grab one if you can.

Damn thought I'd be the only geek that spotted it was a Hagstrom Viking but no there are better geeks than I out there...

bleecher said...

its a red one with six strings i think...... do i get a car sticker now???

Mondo said...

Unfortunatley the 'No Prize' - has gone, but you can have a 'Mondo Mania' all weather anorak.
