Comments :  

On May 27, 1966, Elvis, Red West & Charlie Hodge recorded the song. West sang lead, Elvis sang second tenor and played piano, and Charlie Hodge sang first tenor. The recording was unacceptable because of a faulty backing track. On August 9, 1968, a new instrumental track was recorded with Ray Edenton (guitar), Norbert Putnam (bass), Jerry Byrd (steel guitar) and Buddy Harman (drums). The song remained unreleased until 1980.
