Elvis Presley's last album "Today", featuring the Pointer-penned "Fairytale" reissued
Elvis Presley's last album "Today" has been reissued. It includes a cover of The Pointer Sisters' hit "Fairytale", written by Anita Pointer and Bonnie Pointer. The reissue includes take 1, 2 and the final version. Elvis loved the song so much, he called it "the story of my life". After recording it, he included it in all of his live shows.
Due to the success of the song, The Pointer Sisters won their first Grammy award for Best Duo or Group in 1975. Anita and Bonnie were also nominated for songwriters of the year.
The group was also invited to perform the song at the Grande Ole Opry, making The Pointer Sisters the first black female group to ever perform at the Opry.
