45 Year Anniversary for "If I Can Dream"

On this day in 1968; Elvis recorded the fantastic song "If I Can Dream" for the '68 Comeback Special in NBC studios in Burbank. For me this is THE moment when Elvis took hold of his own career again... this is an essential moment in which... we have subsequently seen as Elvis' return as an artist to be reckoned with. Elvis had spent several years in a musical wilderness with the main focus on soundtracks of varying quality, to put it mildly... during some days in June 1968 changed all that. The King was back!
