Tuning: Standard

Elvis Presley
A Little Less Conversation (1968)
(Mac Davis/Billy Strange)

There are two versions around. One is from the soundtrack of Elvis’ 1968 
movie "Live a Little, Love a Little" (in the key of A). During a recording 
studio session for the 1968 television special, Elvis did a new version 
of the song (in the key of E). It ended up not being used in the TV show 
at all and was first released 30 years later on "Memories: The '68 Comeback 
Special". This second version was used for the JXL Radio Edit Remix included 
on "Elvis 30 #1 Hits".
