The climb

Although not recorded by Elvis for the movie Viva Las Vegas it's nice to know that the original version was recorded 31 july 1962 by The Coasters (Atco 6234).

Here's the clip

This is the same song with the original title and lyrics, cut at the same session as "The Climb", but changed at the request of Atlantic's Jerry Wexler.

Not originally issued :

To make things even more complicated, Peggy Lee recorded a version of this song in 1975 under the title "Daddy What I Do" but, as far as I know, it remains unreleased.

It was cut during the sessions for "Mirrors", an album entirely composed and produced by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller.

Nice to know all these extra information about a song; in general I don't collect (original) versions / recordings after Elvis' recordings.

When they re-released 'Mirrors' in 2005, remixed & remastered by Peter Stoller with bonus tracks, & re-titled it: Peggy Lee Sings Leiber & Stoller it would have been an ideal opportunity to include the 'Daddy What I Do' song.


But they didn't...
