VERBATIM

"On the morning of August 16, 1993, I was driving along Highway 95 between Needles and Laughlin, Nevada, going from one construction site to another where my landscaping crews were working. The first verse of `Mama, I Miss Memphis' was literally implanted into my consciousness -- and I could feel another presence around me. I knew immediately that the song was a message from the King. My home was very near, so I headed straight there, repeating that verse to myself again and again." -- Richard Dean's description of how a song called "Mama, I Miss Memphis" was transmitted to him by none other than Elvis Presley himself. We found this nugget on Dean's Web page, where the Arizona-based songwriter offers recordings of the ditty for -- can you believe it? -- money. Shocking. It just seems like it should belong to all of us. --A 'FLY ON THE WALL' CLASSIC: August 7, 1997
