If the problem isn't with the CD itself, I might bring it back next week and attempt to play it again.For the record, that's the original studio version of the Kirsty MacColl song, not the acoustic version I've aired in the past. The track that followed it consists of the real Elvis attempting to sing "Are You Lonesome Tonight" in concert, flubbing a line, cracking up, and failing to regain his composure while his band continues playing to the end.
