When Felton Jarvis moved from Atlanta, Georgia, to Nashville in 1963, he was already an Elvis fan, like millions of other Americans. Little did he know, however, that scarcely two years later he would join RCA Records to produce Elvis Presley. From 1965 until the singer's death in 1977, Felton Jarvis guided Elvis' recording sessions, supervising the production of such bits as "Big Boss Man," "U. S. Male," "In The Ghetto," "Kentucky Rain," "Suspicious Minds," "Don't Cry Daddy" and many more.
In mid-December of 1980, Felton put the finishing touches on a brand new Elvis project, titled "Guitar Man," on which ten Presley songs were completely re-recorded, retaining only the singer's voice from tbe original sessions and replacing the instrumental tracks with up-dated versions. On December 16, Felton sat down with Jerry Flowers of RCA's Nashville staff to discuss questions for an audio interview to be recorded tbe next week and made available to radio and press in conjunction with the release of the "Guitar Man" album. That studio recording was never made. On December 19, 1980, Felton Jarvis suffered a stroke and was hospitalized. He died in a Nashville hospital on January 3, 1981, at the age of 46. Luckily, a cassette recording of the December 16 pre-interview conversation was made.
The fowlowing material is from a studio-enhanced reproduction of that cassette.The "Vorinterview" includes not only the project "Guitar Man" but it is also spoken about Felton Jarvis interesting career.
