“WHERE ELVIS DARED TO TREADRICH BUCKLAND’S EPIPHANY NOTEBOOK - Three months prior to his passing in 1977, Elvis debuted this performance of “Unchained Melody” in South Dakota. It engages as a literal prayer from a dying man. The artist featured in this video is not an overweight caricature nor a punchline. This is not the simplified, drug addicted buffoon depicted by a vulture culture designed to denigrate the once beautiful. Watch for the glorious smile Elvis delivers halfway through his testimony. It is a self realization that his being still mattered. This is what remained of an extraordinary, eternal, exhausted and always fragile vessel, sailing into the arms of his own surreal mortality, Unchained.
