Gibb, Gibb, Gibb? Not an advert for Gibb's toothpaste (although on occasions they looked that way), but a trio of Australian brothers who made some surprisingly good records, writing many of their numbers themselves. Elvis liked their song "Words," and can be seen in TTWII rehearsing it over and over again. The exact date of Elvis's live recording, made during a Las Vegas performance, is hard to track down: some sources list 22 August, some 24 August and others 25 August. I'm going for 25 August, as the number was definitely used during the midnight show of the 24th, if you see what I mean...!
