    A great band performance - too bad they are pushed so far back . DJ Fontana on drums and homer Boots Randolph on sax .
    Elvis Presley on lead vocal , totally disinterested in the cornball lyrics .
    All kinds of noise to kill the rhythm .
    His very first bad single . Not known if it started out as a B-side.
    The flip side is a beautifully produced beat ballad , co -written by Presley .

    Note: co-written by Hodge , not hoaga
