The sound is very bad and the band doesn't know the song. Too bad.

A spontaneous throwaway version of an old fashioned, sentimental song in absolut terrible sound. I can't say that i care for it.

I like the song, what could of been a decent studio recording ELVIS teases us. if only.

I got this song into my head once and I had to dig it out & play it over & over. Hey, if only Elvis had done a studio recording of it.

A audience recording of an unrehearsed song. Not bad for what it is, but i never listen to it.

Don't care about Elvis' snippet. 1 star. But I love a version by country singer Sonny James. It was a big hit back in the day. 4 stars.

Might have been great if Elvis had recorded a proper studio version. As is, meh.

It was a request from audience & he only sang a bit because his mom & dad liked it and used to sing it around the house. My mom used to sing it too, so I was thrilled to catch him singing it once. Even if just a little. Ed Ames had it out as a big hit during my moms time. He sings it beautifully.

Saw it was the song for today, listened to it on YouTube and I must say was pleasantly surprised with the improved quality of the recording which made it much more enjoyable than when I last heard it.
