Elvis had in fact already recorded this number, though the recording was never really intended for official release. It occurred on Tuesday, December 4, 1956, during the famous "Million Dollar Quartet" session. That recording can be heard on the CD "The Complete 50's Masters" on the fifth CD ("Rare and Rockin'") If anyone doubts that Elvis could sing the Blues, then they clearly have not heard either this number or his "Merry Christmas, Baby."
Blues guitarist Lowell Fulson was born in 1921 in Oklahoma. His recording career started in 1946 and his first hit, "Nobody Loves Me," came in 1950—at the time his group included Ray Charles on piano. He had already recorded for several labels when he moved to Checker and recorded his own "Reconsider Baby" on 27 September 1954. Both Fulson and his "Reconsider Baby" were inducted into the R&B Hall Of Fame in 1993. Fulson died in March 1999.
