Rare but indeed true; Elvis wasn't the first one to record "Suspicious Minds"! It was rather Mark James himself (Francis Zambon of his real name), the songwriter, that did the very first recording of the song in 1968 on Scepter Label, one year before Elvis' famous version. This first version just went completely unnoticed but became a rock classic when Mr. Presley took a grab on it. Notice how the arrangements are very much simular to the one Elvis' has on his version. If you ever heard B.J. Thomas' version also, you will notice some similarities too! This is a rare version to find because it's out of print on CD now! The picture I put here is a rare one of Mark James in 2001 (he's between the two ladies). Hope all you Elvis maniacs appreciate it! :D
