The band on this song contains Elvis, Scotty, Bill, Jimmy Day on steel guitar and Floyd Cramer on piano. It was recorded April 30, 1955 in Gladewater, Texas. A decent pop song, rockafied.

A nice live version from a young Elvis in 1955 that is full of charm and vocal energy. The song benefits from a marvellous peice of piano playing, by I believe Floyd Cramer, which adds up to 4 stars from me.

There was some incorrect information in my previous post. Elvis recorded nine of Winfield Scott's songs, not ten.

This is such a tremendous, fun, catchy and unique song and Elvis' renditions of it are excellent. It's one of ten songs that Elvis recorded that was written by Winfield Scott.
