They seem to "Take It Easy" these days as you don't hear much of them.

Whoever was the guys singing the song, he was really great. Elvis version has better backing with Scotty and Bill and a guitar solo, but I think the guy singing is just as good as Elvis, who seems to be trying to copy the vocal a lot. He must have loved the record. I can't believe it was not a hit, at least an r&b hit. I wonder what the Eagles thought when they heard Elvis recording? Here is their single, its on Youtube:
