A cooperation between Leiber, Stoller and Doc Pomus that hit the #1 spot in the UK trying to repeat that result 43 years later.
This CD-single comes in the original US cover for the outer sleeve, the inner sleeve contains a copy of the original UK wrapper, a standard RCA sleeve. The vinyl edition only has the original UK sleeve, so no picture sleeve.
The single “She's Not You" is not listed very high on our favorite Elvis songs list, basically because the song doesn't have something special, except for the "pa dom pa dom" by Ray Walker. The tune is o.k. you can hum it along in no time, but it is the kind of song that will do very well on an "Elevator Music Top 10".
As for the flip side "Just Tell Her Jim Said Hello" we can almost say the same. It is a standard, and Elvis obviously had a thing for standards, so he had a go at a lot of them, resulting in a respectable list of good recordings. His voice control ("Don't tell her I still love her.."), brings this one on that list.
The alternate take of "She's Not You" is the bonus track on this release. The fun side of this alternate take (no take number given) is you hear Elvis and the band working on the song. Elvis gives Ray Walker some pointers on his "Woo’s". This is the first alternate take with studio chatter in this series of re-issues.
Two strong songs that will bring Elvis probably another Top 3 Hit. For those who don’t care too much about the charts, these detailed reproductions are real gems to collect on either CD-single, vinyl (or both …).
