Clyde McPhatter was the lead singer of The Drifters when they recorded this number. Elvis's version was recorded during his first RCA session, with RCA technicians attempting to recreate the Sun sound. Clyde McPhatter joined Billy Ward and the Dominoes in 1950, but left to form the Drifters in 1953: Elvis recorded the Drifters' "Money Honey." Other McPhatter original recorded by Elvis are "Without Love" and "Such A Night." McPhatter died on 13 June, 1972; he was inducted into the Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame in 1987.
