The '68 Special was directed by Steve Binder and was sponsored by The Singer Sewing Machine Company. The special included Elvis singing his classic songs in a stunning Black Leather outfit, fantastic Gospel numbers, and Elvis sat in a small circle which today is known as an unplugged jam session. Along side Elvis was Charlie Hodge, Scotty Moore, D.J Fontana, Alan Fortas, and Lance LeGault. The special closed with Elvis wearing a gorgeous White suit while powerfully singing If I Can Dream! Elvis was said to have been in the best physical shape of his life. The 68's Special was the highest-rated television special of the year!
