On a friendly forum I'll share information but when the atmosphere changed I'll reduce my contributions. That's my policy.

You know that we keep an eye on things and stomp on trouble as soon as we can. It will remain a friendly, ego free forum as far as I'm concerned.

The song was written by Doc Pomus and recorded in september 1956 by Ray Charles (Atlantic 1108.
The other side of the single is “Leave my woman alone” written by Ray Charles.
Doc Pomus claimed in april 1986 that one of his songs “Lonely Avenue” was recorded by Elvis and stayed unreleased. I’ve no information when the song was tried out in a recording session in the early 60’s.


Very interesting information, colonel. Thank you.



colonel snow wrote:Pot Luck
The song was written by Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman. Registered at BMI – Elvis Presley Music.
The demo couldn’t be used for the movie Speedway because in 1962 an album with the same title was released.


We have talked about this one a couple of times :

Great info, Colonel Snow! Thanks for sharing. It’s really much appreciated. I’ll be back when I have a bit more time and when I have ‘studied’ the info in detail. Thx!
Don't take yourself too seriously ;-)

According to a scan of a letter in the booklet from The Complete 50's Masters Steve Sholes sent on 24 august 1956 a demo record to Elvis with this song. However it was not recorded by Elvis.
The song was written by Johnny Cash and recorded by him around november 1955 but the song was never released.
Other recordings:
05-02-56 - Warren Smith (Sun 239);
25-04-56 – Johnny Carroll & his Hot Rocks (Decca 29940);
00-05-56 – Dave Burton (RCA 47-6535).


Here's the original post, and my answer to it :

The original version was recorded by Tommy Dorsey and his Orchestra in 1938 (Victor 26012).

It was co-written by Bickley "Bix" Reichner, who many years later would co-write "I Need Your Love Tonight".
