This chapter describes the impact of Elvis’s sessions on the studio and the group. Throughout 1969, the studio phones rang almost constantly with people booking sessions. Another Elvis connection was the addition of Bobby “Red” West to American’s staff. A song Red wrote, “If Every Day Was Like Christmas” was a favorite among Elvis fans. The chapter also describes the American group’s series of quirky, experimental records, many of them done either for their own AGP label or for Scepter.
