** We have a guest in the audience, ladies and gentleman. One of the most distinguished actors of all time. He's made some of the greatest classic films ever made.
I knew him from the Paramount Studios when he made "The Ten Commandments" and "Ben Hur"...Charlton Heston!
I used to kid him a lot. We were both working at Paramount, when he was doing "The Ten Commandments" and one day it was raining. I said "Moses, make it stop raining!"
During "Fever" Elvis says in a shrill voice after the line "I light up when you call my name" "Elvis!" In addition, towards the end of the song he changes the lyrics to "cats were born to give you fever, be it Siamese or alley cats!" And then Elvis states: "That song is a lot of fun to do, because I can almost get my breakfast down!" He would like to suggest that he go out of bed shortly before this dinner show ...
At "Suspicious Minds" Elvis changes the text once again: "Let's donít let a black suit die, cause honey, you know how I hate this song!"
Before "I Can't Stop Loving You" Elvis asks: "You know what I canít do?" and answers this question himself funny with: "Sing and drink water at the same time!"
Before "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" Elvis says "I'd like to do a song for my little daughter!"
At Can't Help Falling In Love Elvis sings alternatively "Wise men say when it's time to go!"
The speed is corrected on this release.
