Rare recording of Elvis jamming with The Beatles released!

I've always wished I was a fly on the wall on the legendary night of August 27, 1965 when Brian Epstein and Colonel Tom Parker arranged for the Beatles to meet Elvis Presley at Elvis's Bel Air mansion. (You can read an account of the historical summit here.) It's amazing to me that Priscilla Presley has announced that she has unearthed the actual audio recording of the tail-end of the jam session the King had with the Fab Four! Set to be officially released this summer, the track has leaked on You Tube and is definitely worth a listen. Very catchy and sure to go down in history as a musical treasure for the ages.
