I was browsing the Elvis Presley page on Wikipedia when I read a strange sentence:
During a two-week leave in early June, Presley cut five sides in Nashville.
I've never heard this phrase before. It doesn't really come up on Google, except in copies of the Wikipedia article. In context, it seems like it could mean something similar to "went on a whirlwind tour", but I'm not sure.
I would like to change the sentence to use a more common phrasing, so it can be understood by a wider audience, but I can't change it if I don't know what the original thought was!
