Comments :  

This song was originally recorded on July 2, 1961 with 4 takes. Ray Walker's whistling overdub was added to Take 4. This version was originally intended for the film "Follow That Dream", but was not used.

On October 26, 1961 Elvis re-recorded the song for the "Kid Galahad" movie. Take 2 and the full length version appear on FTD-Kid Galahad.
