Fame and Fortune - L2WB 0084 - March 21

Lyrics

(words & music by Fred Wise - Ben Weisman)
Fame and fortune
how empty they can be
But when I hold you in my arms
That's heaven to me
Who cares for fame and fortune
They're only passing things
But the touch of your lips on mine
Makes me feel like a king

Your kind of love
is a treasure I hold
It's so much greater
than silver or gold
I know that I'd have nothing
If you should go away
But to know that you love me
Brings fame and fortune my way

Did you know?

Fame and Fortune runs about 0.4% too slow on '24 Carat Gold' (no big deal) and sounds a little brittle due to noise reduction and slight lack of low frequencies. 'There's Always Me' volume 4 is much better.

A slow song that seems to almost drag itself along, but, it works. Nobody but Elvis could have sang it that way. (IMG:http://elvis-tkc.com/forum2/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

YES, YES, YES!! An Elvis classic!! I would have loved to have heard Elvis sing this in the 70's when his voice was richer and deeper.

Thanks for the info.
