A fairly recent Elvis "find," having first appeared officially on the 1999 "Sunrise" double-CD set—a very early and very scratchy live recording, possibly made in Lubbock, Texas, at a concert attended by Buddy Holly, though more likely to have been made when Elvis performed on the Louisiana Hayride.
Johnny Torrence, Dee Hawkins, James Brown and Rudy Jackson released a record as The Marbles, then added a new member to the group's lineup and renamed it The Jewels. Their first release was "Hearts Of Stone," which had been written by Rudy Jackson and Eddie Ray (although the original label makes no mention of Jackson and instead lists Torrence alongside Ray). A cover version by Otis Williams and The Charms received better promotion and became the bigger hit. The Jewels had several more releases, but broke up in 1956.

The Jewels



Hearts made of stone
Will never break
Cause the love you have felt
They just won't take
You can ask them please
Please please please break
And all your love
Is there to take

Yes, hearts of stone
Will cause you pain
Although you love them
They'll stop just the same
You can ask them please
Please please please break
And all of your love
Is there to take

( instrumental )

But they'll say no no no no no no no no no no no no no
Everybody knows
I thought you knew
Hearts made of stone

Yes, hearts of stone
Will cause you pain
Although you love them
They'll stop you just the same
You can ask them please
Please please please break
And all of your love
Is there to take

But they'll say no no no no no no no no no no no no no
Everybody knows
I thought you knew
Hearts made of stone
