Argo’s April Fools Fun!
Wake up with a laugh as Argo is smiling at 7a Elvis Time, you’ll have fun when you hear this very rare 1974 album release, “Having Fun With Elvis On Stage”, a spoken word vinyl release that consisted solely of byplay and banter by Elvis from between songs during live concerts, primarily jokes, with the songs themselves removed from the recording. Having Fun with Elvis on Stage was the result of a ploy by Presley's manager, Colonel Tom Parker to create an Elvis album consisting of content that his RCA Records could not claim rights to, thus allowing Parker to release it through his own label, Boxcar Records, instead. Having Fun with Elvis on Stage was first distributed at Elvis concerts, but RCA would later package and distribute it. Elvis wasn’t happy with what Colonel did, and had the album release pulled from retail and from his concert merchandise.
