According to Ernst Jorgensen in his book, "Elvis Presley: A Life In Music," this song was written by Clyde Otis and Ivory Joe Hunter especially for the June 10, 1958 session. This, however, can't be, as the number was first recorded by Eddie Riff (real name: Edward Ruffin) in July 1956 and issued on Dover 102 before the end of that year with credits indicating Hunter/Otis. Elvis's version was not released until 1964. The single peaked at number 16 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart. An alternate take with a faster tempo was released in 1985 on the "Reconsider Baby" album.
