Soon after Reed's single appeared, Elvis Presley recorded the song  with Reed playing the guitar part, and it became a minor country and pop hit.
According to Peter Guralnick in his two-volume biography of Presley, the singer had been trying unsuccessfully to record the tune, but wasn't happy with the Elvis Presley - Guitar Man (Cassette). He said something to the effect of: "Get me that redneck picker who's on Elvis Presley - Guitar Man (Cassette) original tune", and his staff brought Reed into the studio - who nailed it on the first take though this romantic account is contradicted by a studio tape of the session that documents the first, second and fifth takes which are available on video-sharing website youtube.
The single spent one week at number one on the country chart. Thirteen years later, "Guitar Man" was re-recorded in a new electric arrangement, with Presley's original vocal left intact, and it was the last of his eleven number one country hits.
The record also peaked at number twenty-eight on the Billboard Hot and was his last top pop hit in the U. Download as PDF Printable version. Wikimedia Commons. Add links. Kay Tupelo Hardware.
