Still love this. No auto tune, no second takes, no voice overs and all the games they play these days
Elvis Presley’s live performance of “Hurt” in 1977 is a poignant and powerful rendition of the song. “Hurt” was originally written by Jimmie Crane and Al Jacobs and was first recorded by Roy Hamilton in 1954. Elvis’ version was recorded in 1976 and released on his final studio album, “Moody Blue.”
In the live performance, which took place on June 19, 1977, during a concert in Rapid City, South Dakota, Elvis delivers a haunting and emotional performance of “Hurt.” The song’s melancholic melody and lyrics, which speak of heartbreak and regret, are perfectly suited to Elvis’ soulful voice and dramatic style of performance.
As Elvis sings, the audience can be heard reacting with cheers and applause, clearly moved by his powerful delivery of the song. Elvis’ voice is full of emotion and pain, and his performance is a testament to his incredible talent as a singer and performer.
Tragically, this concert would be one of Elvis’ last, as he passed away just two months later on August 16, 1977. However, his live performance of “Hurt” remains a powerful and poignant reminder of his immense talent and enduring legacy as one of the greatest singers of all time.
