I read somewhere... (a thought comes to mind, did I read it some time? or hear it? I can't quite recall) that a british DJ at the time had a competition when he played the then new Elvis hit and the Ral Donner cover back to back and asked listeners to guess which was which... the only time Ral Donner actually sounded like Elvis in my opinion
"We'll bring in The Supremes tomorrow night... Mahalia Jackson singing Lead..."
