Had THE KING done a proper studio recording it would have been the greatest. I give it the same amount of stars that are in the heavens.

Elvis' home recorded performance of this song is hilarious, unique and enjoyable, but I wish that Elvis had properly recorded it in the studio instead. This song is a classic and a masterpiece.

A beautiful song, sung with passion by Elvis. His piano playing is excellent. I like it.

Elvis at play with his mates and seemingly enjoying every moment. As a recording a complete throw away.

The version on the Platinum CD box gives a glimpse into what Elvis could have done with this song. Especially the second couplet has emotion already. It goes without saying that Elvis had something magical and could wring out the last drop of emotion out of a song if he was committed. Three stars right now, just hard to have true opinion about a home recording.

ELVIS was just fooling around. He must have sung quite a number of one or two liners of other songs. Does that make it interesting? No way. However, had he done a serious recording I think he would beat them all as he was a master in expressing the right and fitting sentiment.

This is a waste of time. Properly done in the studio, it could have been great but I doubt he would have beaten the Same Cooke version.

Ask any Elvis fan to name 200 of his recordings and i don't think TW would get a mention. Make that 300.

I really like the song, it´s a minor classic. If Elvis had recorded the song in the studio, or sung it live, it would have been spectacular, I´m sure. As it is now, it´s hard to give an honest opinion

I've never cared much for this song but if I had to listen to someone's version of it, Elvis at least makes it bearable.

The song itself is a beauty, and had Elvis done a serious studio version, it might have been worthwhile. But this is not really a full song.

A studio version of this song, would have been nice.

I have it on my "Home recording" CD and I must say I don't think much of that one song. I prefer "Tumblin' Tumbleweeds" by far.

while we get to the end of the vaults^, we seem to be close to the end songwise. so what about a Vegas one liner for tomorrow? ;-)

I would have loved to hear a real version of this song.
