Notes

At this session, Bergen White replaced Neal Matthews as part of The Jordanaires. It was prior to this session that David Briggs introduced Bergen to Elvis. This session was cancelled after Elvis tried to play his new single for the backup vocalists on one of the studio's turntables. When the turntable failed to work, Elvis threw his headphones against the studio wall in disgust, composed himself, walked around, shook hands with the singers and abruptly left the studio with his entourage.

Sadly, this would be the last time that three of the members of The Jordanaires would see Elvis.
