In 1875, the songwriter George Persley (not "Presley") composed the song "Barney, Take Me Home Again," with words by Arthur French, dedicated to his friend, Thomas Westendorf. Westendorf himself wrote an answer song called "I'll Take You Home Again, Kathleen" in 1875 or1876. Ernest Pike, born in 1871, recorded his original version of that number in about mid 1907 and it was released as a single-sided Zonophone disk, number X-42630. Pike recorded the number again three years later, this time together with Stanley Pike, for release on an Edison cylinder, number 13982. Pike was a popular English tenor, who recorded under several names and with a prolific output. He died in 1936.
Elvis made a home-recording of this number in 1959, whilst staying in Goethestrasse, Bad Nauheim, Germany, during his military service, but made a studio recording on 19 May 1971.
