Re: Jim wasn't the only artist RCA didn't appreciate!...
It seems that RCA isn't the only record company that treated their big money making artists so badly. Nat Cole certainly deserved a lot more respect from Capital Records, if that was the way they treated him. Nat was much like Elvis. He went along with everything too, and never wanted to make waves. There was only one time that Elvis went against Colonel Parker's wishes. When Elvis was signed to do his first TV special in 1968, Parker wanted him to do nothing but Christmas songs in the show. Elvis refused, and instead, he returned to his roots and gave some of the greatest performances of his life in this special, which became his big comeback after years of making movies and being absent from doing live concerts.
