Comments :  

The Master Take 29 was recorded on February 23, 1957. The other Takes 1 to 28 are not available. On May 3rd, a 1st Movie Version with Piano was tried. Takes 1 & 2 of Version 1 exist. A 2nd Version was then tried, with 21 Takes all available. On May 9th, the Movie Version was recorded at the MGM Sound Stage. Take 12 from this session is the Movie Master. The song was not actually used in the movie "Loving You" but was included in the movie "Jailhouse Rock".
