Scran, re trivia h.
Did Waddy Wachtel play guitar on that album?

Trivia tidbit (courtesy of the CBC)

The first time the song "Hound Dog" found its way unto the charts in North America was as a R&B hit for Big Mama Thornton, in 1953. In 1956, Elvis happened to be in Las Vegas and heard the song being performed with a R&R beat, as a parody of the Thornton version, by a group called Freddy Bell and the Bellboys. Elvis liked the arrangement, decided he wanted to record the song, and the rest as they say is history.:)

Re Air Supply - Well, on the early albums, there are three guys - (the band are in the background!)
