Ron Tutt – Suspicious Minds Live

This is one of the best live performances of the King. Judging from the set and Elvis’ physique the year must have been 1970 and the place Las Vegas.

When I heard the studio version of the song I kept on wondering why is the last verse so big (the fadeout starts after five repeats I think). I guess the reason lies here in this live version.

Ron Tutt is the drummer that toured with Elvis during the ’70s as a member of the TCB band. Ηe was notoriously known for incorporating Elvis’ body language in his own drum performance. Talkin’ bout havin a good relationship with the boss. His approach is perfectly demonstrated in this video.
