Rare, Medium-Rare, and Well Done Unusual songs Elvis did on stage, 1969-77...by Shane Paterson

What I mean by "unusual" is that either these songs were only performed once, or on a very few occasions (most of which were no more than one-liners), or that they were not typically part of Elvis' repertoire at the time he performed them. An example of the latter is "I Can't Stop Loving You" from his final concert in 1977 which, though he performed it hundreds of times between 1969 and 1973, had been dropped from his line-up for a few years by the time Elvis set foot on that stage in Indianapolis.
