September 07, 1957

There was another session at the Radio Recorders from noon till 8.00 p.m. However there was still one song for the new Christmas album missing, so Leiber and Stoller wrote a new one. This was the bluesy song: Santa Claus Is Back In Town, which Elvis liked very much.
There were plans made for recording some instrumental tracks by Scotty, Bill and D.J. at the end of the session. Elvis even suggested he would join them as a piano man. However at the end of the session there was not enough time left and Elvis said or did nothing for Scotty, Bill and D.J. This made Scotty and Bill write a letter of resignation and they expressed their long-held feelings of resentment towards Elvis. D.J. declined to go along with them. This all gave some bitterness on both sides.
