‘During Elvis’ 1969 Memphis recording sessions at American Sound Studios, Elvis was thrilled to discover that his boyhood idol Roy Hamilton would be working at the same studio during the day (Elvis’ sessions were usually at night) and Elvis presented Roy with a beautiful new song ‘Angelica’ that he was going to record himself. The song turned out to be the single released from the session. Sadly it would be Hamilton’s last as he suffered a stroke latter that year. It was a Roy Hamilton R&B tune, ‘Without A Song’ that Elvis famously quoted for his acceptance speech at the U.S. Jaycees’ Ten Outstanding Young Men of 1970 dinner’ -www.elvis.com.au

Roy was taken by a stroke in 1969 at age 40.
