It was October 31st, 1976 that Elvis Presley last recorded professionally. Elvis, who was finishing up his latest round of sessions, recorded in the Jungle Room of his Graceland mansion in Memphis. He taped his vocal for a cover of “He’ll Have To Go,” which had been a Number Two hit in 1960 for the late Jim Reeves.

In the days prior to the session, Elvis, who due to health issues insisted on recording at home with a portable studio, had also recorded “Way Down,” which went on to be his final Top 20 hit during his lifetime. Also recorded was a cover of the late Johnny Ace‘s 1955 Top 20 hit “Pledging My Love,” and Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice‘s “It’s Easy For You.” All four of the songs appeared on “The King’s” final album, 1977’s Moody Blue.
