Rejected songs

Postby colonel snow » Sun Jun 26, 2016 4:17 pm

Rejected songs

A lot of songs were offered for recording by Elvis. Most of the demo's were rejected and even not recorded.

For some scenes in a movie several songwriters were invited to write a song for a certain scene. Elvis and /or the director made a choice whiche one was fit for recording.

Here I'll add all the information I come across.

According to a scan of a letter in the booklet from The Complete 50's Masters Steve Sholes sent on 22 dec. 1955 a demo record to Elvis with this song. However it was not recorded by Elvis.
