  1. Nice set. Interesting he had all the back up singers, etc at that early stage. Any idea whose song that 'No One Here' is?

    1. Agreed! Sorry, not enough of a Crenshaw fan to help you on the song ID. But if you find out anything, please chime in...

  2. Thank you! Have quite a bit of his music, but did not have this show. Very interesting blog too. I'll be back!

  3. "No One Here" is actually Elvis Presley's big hit "Got A Lotta Livin' To Do"

    1. Thanks for the thanks, and for that song ID. Will change the original post.
