On April 14,Eminem tweeted : "There is no Relapse 2". Although his followers thought he was not releasing an album, he had changed its title to Recovery and confirmed this by tweeting "RECOVERY" with a link to his website.

But as I kept recording and working with new producers, the idea of a sequel to Relapse started to make less and less sense to me, and I wanted to make a completely new album. The music on Recovery came out very different from Relapseand I think it deserves its own title.

In this persona, his songs are violent and dark, with a comic twist. An argument after the album's release prompted Eminem to use the Kaniff character on Marshall Mathers and later albums except Encore and Recovery. Aristotle, angry with Eminem's use of his character, released a mixtape in his Kaniff persona ridiculing him. Eminem is considered unusual in structuring his songs around the lyrics, rather than writing to beats.
He said about producing his own music, "Sometimes, I may get something in my head, like an idea or the mood of something that I would want, and I'm not always gonna get that by going through different tracks that other people have made.
They don't know what's in my head. I think maybe it helps, a little bit, with diversity, the sound of it, but also, I would get something in my head and want to be able to lay down that idea from scratch. Despite Eminem never using it, Necro still said positive things about Eminem and would appear on Shade45 years later.

The first was " Mosh ", which was released ina few weeks before the United States presidential election and heavily criticized then-president George W.

In his song " Headlights ", Eminem apologized to and reiterated his love for his mother.
Eminem has spoken publicly about his addiction to prescription drugs, including VicodinAmbien and Valium. An associate gave him an Ambien tablet which "knocked [him] out", encouraging him to obtain a prescription. This was Eminem's first experience of drug addiction, which would affect him for several years. Near the end of production on Encorehe would "just go into the studio and goof off [with] a pocketful of pills".
Eminem began taking the drugs to "feel normal", taking a "ridiculous amount [ Vicodin, maybe Eminem's weight increased to pounds kg and he was regularly eating fast food: "The kids behind the counter knew me — it wouldn't even faze them.

Elvis was already committed to his next two movies Follow That Dream and Kid Galahad these two also had no soundtracksso there was nothing they could do about those but after that it was travelogue after travelogue. Elvis recorded all the songs in three nights in Hollywood on March 21, 22 and 23 before filming started.
It was listed by Billboard as the second biggest selling album of the s behind West Side Story. It was nominated for a Grammy in for Best Soundtrack. Elvis wore his famous gold lame jacket and sang 19 songs. Two days after the benefit concert, Elvis began filming Blue Hawaii. It is still not on my rotation of 11 Elvis movies I watch all the time, but I can appreciate it now.
The bank scene is especially funny, and I literally laugh out loud when I watch it. Did you notice Joe Esposito as a bank teller and Red West as a security guard? Follow That Dream is a sweet, funny, albeit goofy, movie that I will watch more often now as I have probably only watched it a handful of times.
Gordon Douglas ended up directing the movie and was the only person to have directed both Elvis and Frank Sinatra. Douglas invited Elvis out for dinner during filming, but the Colonel put a stop to it. Gamblers move in next to them and mayhem ensues. Elvis of course plays Toby Kwimper the son recently home from the army, out on disability.
A rarity in his movies, Elvis is not the focal point of each scene but rather a part of an ensemble. Maybe life imitating art again as teenage Priscilla came to live with Elvis and his family at Graceland? Elvis and Anne dated during filming. Anne says she was not a fan of Elvis prior to filming and did not meet him until they were on location in Florida. She said Elvis brought flowers to her cabin on her first day and they went for a drive and immediately hit it off.
Joe Esposito tells a different story. This proved to be false when her stomach was pumped at the hospital. Location shooting for Follow That Dream began on July 6, and filming began on July 11 continuing through August 28, The studio had to actually build a beach and hauled palm trees into Crystal River. With temperatures over degrees, Elvis had to change his shirt 22 times in one day.
Interiors were shot in the courthouse in Inverness and a bank in Ocala. Filming was delayed while it was removed. Elvis and his friends stayed at the Port Paradise Hotel, situated on a little lagoon out in Crystal Bay which opened up to the Gulf of Mexico. Each room had a little kitchen where Joe Esposito and Alan Fortas would cook Elvis breakfast each morning.
In fact, they would purposely argue loudly while making breakfast as a way to wake up Elvis. Gambling was illegal in Florida, so they had difficulties obtaining two dice tables and other gambling equipment until one day a member of the Chamber of Commerce and a couple of anonymous gamblers showed up and saved the day.
Elvis visited these Natural Springs to watch the Mermaids perform in the Underwater Theater, which they did eight shows a day to a million people a year. It was during this time, Dee told Elvis she was pregnant, but several months later she said had a miscarriage. He was 11 years old at the time. Petty visited his uncle on set and got a chance to to meet Elvis.
It was those records that inspired Tom Petty to become a musician as well as a lifelong Elvis fan. Compared to the great success of Blue Hawaiiit was clear the ticket buying audience preferred Elvis in light hearted romantic comedies with lots of songs.
Elvis recorded six songs and around 38 takes in just three hours between 7pm and 10pm. I would watch it even more, but it is the only one of my favorites that is not available to stream online, so I have to actually put the dvd in to watch it. Kid Galahad does not get much publicity, is barely discussed and is rarely shown even though it is good movie with a real plot and a good cast that mixes drama, comedy and music well.
Like Wild in the Countryit is a movie I would watch even if Elvis was not in it — but then again I love s dramas. Kid Galahad does not rely on Elvis in every scene.
It is also the last Elvis movie for six years that was based on a book until Live a Little, Love a Little 18 movies later. The screenplay for Kid Galahad was written by William Fay. It was based on the novel of the same name by Frances Wallace in I have the book but have yet to read it.
It also starred Eddie Albert and Sylvia Sidney. Elvis originally wanted Michael Cortiz to direct as he directed the original Kid Galahad in as well as King Creolebut instead Phil Karson was the director. Theirs became a good relationship. Kid Galahad was the fourth and final Elvis movie produced by Davie Weisbart. In Kid GalahadElvis plays Walter who is just out of the army shocker! His parents had died years earlier and he was raised in Kentucky.
He ends up boxing for Willy. To prepare for his role, Elvis sparred, punched bags, went on a diet and lost 12 pounds. In real life, Gig was drunk a lot of the time and did not treat his young, pretty wife Elizabeth Montgomery of Bewitched fame well. Years later, Gig shot and killed his fifth wife Kim Schmidt and then shot and killed himself. After re-watching that scene closely over and over, I think I may have figured it out.
Right before Joan cracks up, you see Elvis sort of cross his eyes — it is at the very end of the song. In the original movie, Bette Davis played that roll and falls in love with the young fighter. Elvis invited Michael to one of his weekend trips to Palm Springs with him and the guys.
Elvis rented the top floor at Howard Manor. I met Michael at Elvis Week when he signed his memoir for me. He was very friendly. Orlando de la Fuente, who played Sugarboy Romero, was an undefeated year-old welterweight boxer. Twenty-four years earlier, Callahan had also trained Wayne Morris in the original Kid Galahad movie. They all said Elvis was quick with his hands, but slow on his feet standing with a wide stance due to Karate background.
The movie takes place during the summer in the Catskills in New York, but filming in November and December in the higher elevation about feet above sea level California mountains felt more like winter especially when it snowed. A couple interior scenes were filmed inside Hidden Lodge, but the kitchen set was recreated in the large dining room hall at Buckhorn Camp. Most of the cast and crew stayed at the Idyllwild Inn, which had rooms, a restaurant and cabins.
Movies were shown nightly at the Idyllwild Inn for everyone to enjoy. Unfortunately due to the inclement weather, it was difficult to get the movies up to Idyllwild so they would show the same ones over and over.
After filming, many of the cast and crew, including Elvis, would go to restaurants and bars in Pine Cove and Mountain Center about four miles down towards Lake Hemet.
Elvis would also eat hamburgers at a coffee shop in town called the Koffee Kup. Everyone involved with Kid Galahad all say the same great things about Elvis, that he was shy and charming and polite and professional and friendly.
I have actually heard this about Elvis on every movie he made, but it is nice to hear it from the crew and extras as well as the stars. Elvis played football with the guys and sing and entertain everyone and just sit around talk. In addition to hanging out with the adults, Elvis also talked and played with the kids throwing the football around. Fifty elementary school children from Idyllwild were hired as extras and can be seen in the bleachers during the outdoor boxing scenes.
Elvis was always trying to better himself and his performance constantly asking the real life boxers on set to help him improve. Some of the fights scenes in the movie were actually real as they would get a few punches LP outside of the choreography. They gave Elvis three leather bound books. Elvis told him that he suggested to the Studio that they should have switched the filming schedule and filmed Follow That Dream in the winter and Kid Galahad in the summer.
This is the same area used at the beginning of The Andy Griffith Show. During filming, Elvis was dating Connie Stevens, but according to Alan Fortas she broke up with him when Joe picked her up instead of Elvis himself and they were not alone for their date, rather surrounded by all the guys.
He stayed there until For the first time, Elvis did not spend Christmas home at Graceland. Elvis sang six songs in Kid Galahad. I have that original 45 rpm record. This is the first Elvis movie that does not have a title song.
He is puttering around with his car and flipping through a book and then it shows Dolly longingly looking at Rose and Walter, which helps sets the romantic mood. Kid Galahad was released August 29, and grossed even less than Flaming Star on its release. One of the reasons it is so easy to watch is because Elvis is particularly HOT in this movie.
Yes he is always hot, but something about Elvis in this movie is even more mesmerizing than usual. Another reason I love Girls! Again, Elvis just looks magnificent in his all balck and the way he moves thank you Jackie Wilson — just pure fun! The title Girls! This movie is Album) more about boats and fishing than girls, but I guess it is not very good publicity to call a movie Boats! There are barely two girls in Girls!
It was years before I realized they were supposed to be in Hawaii. In all of my readings, no one seems to know why they never mentioned they are in Hawaii. Pre Production of Girls! Hal Wallis was again the producer and Norman Taurog again the director. Key West, Florida was also considered as a possible location. Hal Wallis was no longer interested in portraying Elvis as a serious rebel actor as in some of his previous movies, rather he was going to promote Elvis as an entertainer especially after the hugely successful Blue Hawaii.
So in Girls! Stella Stevens played Robin Gantner, a nightclub singer who used to date Ross and is still in love with him. Although they had similar backgrounds as Stella was also born in Mississippi and lived in Memphis for a time while she went to Memphis State College, she and Elvis did not get along.
This is obviously ridiculous as we all know Elvis rarely drank and detested drunks. Stella begrudgingly took the part only after she was threatened with suspension by Paramount. There is speculation this part would have went to Delores Hart had she not left Hollywood to become a nun. She said there was nothing romantic between her and Elvis, but they were good friends often socializing off set. She even went out with him alone, without the Memphis Mafia, to dinner in Hilo.
I saw Laurel at Elvis Weekthe 40th Anniversary. She did not stay for a meet and greet, but we got to hear her speak at Conversations on Elvis. At Elvis Week the following year inwe got to hear Ginny Tiu speak and play the piano.
Red plays the bongos on the tuna boat, and Alan catches a tuna from Ross. Elvis arrived in Honolulu, Hawaii on April 7, Elvis wanted to travel by ship, but there was a strike so he had to fly. Elvis was greeted by over 8, fans and lost his watch, his tie clip and a diamond ring to these thousands of overzealous fans. The next day a fan called Elvis at the Hawaiian Village Hotel on Oahu to say she had his ring and she would return it — she left it for him at the front desk.
Filming began on April 9, Stunt doubles for Elvis and Laurel were thankfully used in the scene that always makes me hold my breath. It is the scene toward the end of the movie when Ross and Laurel jump from the sailboat to the speedboat and then the speedboat cuts right in front of the sailboat and the two almost collide.
I assume that was not on purpose, and nothing I have read has commented on it except to say that stunt doubles were used.
Location shooting was finished on April 26th and everyone returned to Hollywood where filming resumed on May 1st on Stage 5 at Paramount Studios. Although Elvis was not allowed to break boards as Karate practice during filming for fear he would get hurt, he did manage to play football. English singer Billy Fury visited the set and said his proudest moment was meeting Elvis and presenting him with gold and silver discs for his UK sales.
Filming finished on June 8, After previewed, Hal Wallis edited out five minutes of the movie including two songs. Even though it only came out weeks before the end of the year, Girls! Elvis was voted the Top Box Office Draw by the movie industry, having three of the top grossing movies of Blue Hawaii at 14 even though it was released inKid Galahad at 37 and Girls!
In according to TV GuideGirls! Before filming began in Hawaii, Elvis began three days of recording the soundtrack at Radio Recorders in Hollywood on March 26, They wrote it for The Coasters in The title song is used during the opening credits as well as the end of the movie with different lyrics. It is the version at the opening credits that is on the soundtrack album.
The soundtrack as a whole peaked at 3 and earned a gold record selling over one million dollars and overcopies. The Elvis Movie Formula was now set. With no strong supporting cast in Girls! His movies were from this point on star vehicles centered around Elvis, which meant the target audience were Elvis fans rather than a wider audience of some of his previous movies. The musical numbers took precedence over character development and storylines.
Star vehicles were not unusual for the time and Elvis was a singer, so he made musicals. Like John Wayne made westerns Doris Day made romantic comedies. According to Alan Fortas, Elvis considered Girls! This was only the fourth movie filmed in Seattle. I thought about Elvis when I visited Seattle in and rode the monorail wondering if Elvis stood in the same place I was waiting to board and when I went up in space needle in during my first visit.
It was produced by Ted Richmond, and the screenplay was written by Si Rose and Seaman Jacobs although originally it was supposed to be written by William Fay. His dressing room once belonged to Clark Gable. Elvis had to postpone his soundtrack session after only recording three songs because he had a cold.
Elvis was much more adult looking in this his 12th movie, wearing a suit most of the time. She went on to play a nurse in several other movies. Joan eventually gave up acting for a career with Hilton Hotels. I always loved her and thought she was so cute and made the movie. Eventually Vicky moved to Hawaii and became its First Lady from to while her husband was governor. Years later inKurt would play Elvis in a movie called Elvis. His demeanor and style was what I drew from.
Gary was part of the gang who played football with Elvis at De Neve Park while Elvis was in town making movies. My excitement quickly waned. Gary was SO full of himself, a complete jerk I thought. He even said Tuesday Weld looked at him and looked at Elvis and picked him — I seriously doubt it. It was the tone he used and the smirk on his face when he talked about these women. Gary was name dropping and almost competing with Tom Brown saying I was friends with Jim Morrison, and I was real good friends with Ricky Nelson too — again it was his tone.
Then Gary said William Shatner was an ass and had a really mean look on his face. During filming, there were hundreds of local police as well as six Pinkerton plainclothes detectives to protect and escort Elvis through the crowds. Elvis filmed there for just ten of those days. Along with dating Yvonne Craig, it was also reported that Elvis was dating Seattle local girl Sue Wouters during filming.
That was not Elvis and Joan in the final scene leading the marching band through the fair — they were stand ins. Elvis was interviewed on set by Lloyd Shearer where he discussed his love of reading and studying philosophy. Elvis finished filming on November 9, and went to Las Vegas to vacation before returning to Memphis for the holidays.
In the movie, Elvis sings an extra verse to this song. Production of Fun in Acapulco began on January 21, There were several locations photographed in Acapulco using a double as a stand in for Elvis, but Elvis filmed all of his scenes at Paramount Studios in Hollywood, California. The doubles that were used for the Mexico shots were pretty bad, as no one walks like Elvis. Album) had to act against green screens and moving backgrounds that were previously filmed like the scene on the bicycle with Raoul and in the car with Delores.
Elvis wanted to do his own stunts in Fun in Acapulco. Luckily, the stunt occurred without incident. However, that was not Elvis diving off the foot cliff. But it was Elvis who was carried on the shoulders of onlookers after his victorious dive. They had to reshoot that scene many times because Elvis was moving around too much because apparently his crotch was being grabbed by one of the guys carrying him. The grabber was then dismissed.
Along with digging into a different genre of music, and focusing on being a tribute to just one artist for this volume in the series, MA 3 also has the band performing as their largest ensemble yet: a piece band, including a 5-piece string section. Giving no limits to these reimagined versions of Frank Ocean tunes. On election daywhen I saw that there was a good chance the state of Georgia might go blue, I came up with an idea: to record an album of Georgia- related songs as a thank you to the state and donate the money to a Georgia based non-profit organization.
I will admit my motivations were a bit selfish. The songs on this album are some of my favorite Georgia-related songs, but the tracklist is not meant to be comprehensive. I hope you enjoy listening to these recordings as much as we enjoyed making them. Keep listening to good music and fighting the good fight.

The band had its roots in the Congo although it formed in Kenya in the mid-sixties. Each of the songwriters sang lead in their native tongues and this meant they used vocals in three African languages next to the songs sung in English. In when the BBC held a competition to find the best band in Africa, Matata submitted a song and came in first. Several singles also came out of this and Matata scored hits in the Netherlands, Belgium and France. With a wealth of material and a dynamic live act to its name they would play packed gigs every night.
The group was a visual, as well as musical feast and quickly became favorites at several well-known London nightclubs. There would be no further Matata recordings and sadly the band split after releasing their second album.
