TCB Band | Bobby Ogdin | (Keyboards)
He was vocalist and keyboard player for the Grammy nominated band 'Bering Strait'.
Over the years Bobby had become a well known 'zany' player but always maintained a reputation as a top sessions player, keyboardist, percussionist and arranger in Nashville working and touring with the top of country musicians including Willie Nelson, Travis Tritt, Charlie Daniels, The Marshall Tucker Band, The Judds, Kenny Rogers, Kenny Chesney, B.J. Thomas, Marshall Tucker and more. Bobby replaced David Briggs on electric piano and worked for Elvis Presley from March of 1977 and all further shows. It is said that David Briggs had recommended Bobby to Elvis. After his time with Elvis he became famous with fans of 'Ween' for being their bandleader with his own 'Shit Creek Boys'. Today Bobby is still very much active as a session player and is vice president of the Nashville branch of RMA (Recording Musicians Association).
From April of 1976 Elvis wanted to have two sets of keyboards in his band. This was because he wanted a bigger and better sound. Hence the reason behind piano and electric piano.
Never before have we seen an Elvis Presley concert from the 1950's with sound. Until Now! The DVD Contains recently discovered unreleased film of Elvis performing 6 songs, including Heartbreak Hotel and Don't Be Cruel, live in Tupelo Mississippi 1956. Included we see a live performance of the elusive Long Tall Sally seen here for the first time ever. + Plus Bonus DVD Audio.
This is an excellent release no fan should be without it.
The 'parade' footage is good to see as it puts you in the right context with color and b&w footage. The interviews of Elvis' Parents are well worth hearing too. The afternoon show footage is wonderful and electrifying : Here is Elvis in his prime rocking and rolling in front of 11.000 people. Highly recommended.
