"SATURDAY IN MEMPHIS" hadde allerede vært lenge på NJS-repertoaret da den ble innspilt. En stemningsrapport fra Memphis, en by som vanskelig kan overvurderes når rockens historie skal skrives. Biltrafikk og gatestemninger kan høres før NJS-kompet settes inn. Eigil Berg beskriver lørdagskvelden og Memphis-referansene før Frank Mead trår til med en røff saxofon-solo i beste King Curtis-stil. Litt "twangy" gitar fra Bjørn Kristiansen - som helhet en grei, liten rocker. 

Saturday In Memphis

(Eigil Berg)

It’s Saturday in Memphis

The dixie-moon is shining bright

The Mississippi river

Is rolling in the pale moonlight

Let me take you where the action is

I bring the beat if you bring me your kiss

On a Saturday in Memphis tonight

 

It’s Saturday in Memphis

The dixie-moon is shining bright

We’re goin’ down on Beale Street

We’re gonna rock the joint tonight

There's a place called the Boogie Cafe

They play the blues ‘til the break of day

On a Saturday in Memphis tonight

 

I feel like I’m walkin’

The rock'n’roll hall of fame

Did you ever hear ‘em talkin’

Of any other city

With such a reputation to claim

 

I feel like I’m walkin’

The rock'n’roll hall of fame

Did you ever hear ‘em talkin’

About another city

With such a reputation to claim

 

It’s Saturday in Memphis

The dixie-moon is shining bright

And here is to the weekend

The beer and my woman tonight

There ain’t no place I'd rather be

Than by the riverbanks in ol’ Tennessee

On a Saturday in Memphis tonight

 

There ain't no place I’d rather be

Than by the riverbanks in ol’ Tennessee

On a Saturday in Memphis tonight
