These sessions produced the songs "Loving You," "Mean Woman Blues" and "Blueberry Hill," among others. Unseen period photographs of Elvis recording music are incredibly scarce, and these two images were saved by the same serendipity as the previous two lots--all of them were saved from the studio trash at the same time, some decades ago.
