This week, Justin & Gurdip are doing a topic selected by the TCBCast Patreon community, examining the time between Elvis' 1956 and 1969 Vegas engagements, what other acts (including the Rat Pack) were up to through the 60s, and how Elvis' show at the International was different in tone and audience from what had come before.
For Song of the Week, both this week were voted on by Patreon supporters as well! Justin rides that "Mystery Train" all the way back to its roots in country and blues, and Gurdip turns into "A Big Hunk O' Love" after hearing Elvis' brilliant late 50s hit.
