Editor's note: this is from wikipedia: "The soundtrack song "Rubberneckin'" was recorded at American Sound Studios in Memphis, Tennessee in January of 1969, during the midst of the sessions that resulted in Presley's "comeback" album, From Elvis in Memphis. The remainder of the songs were recorded at Recording Studios in Universal City, Los Angeles, California between March 5-7, 1969. Only "Rubberneckin'" was released to tie-in with the film (as the B-side of "Don't Cry Daddy"), with "Change of Habit", and "Have a Happy" appearing on the 1970 compilation album, Let's Be Friends and "Let Us Pray" not appearing until the 1971 compilation You'll Never Walk Alone. An additional song recorded for but not used in the film, "Let's Be Friends", appeared on the album of the same title. "Rubberneckin'" is also the only song from this film (or, indeed, any of Presley's recent films) that the singer agreed to perform in concert during his return to live performances that occurred around the time of the film's release. Some sources, such as Elvis: The Illustrated Record by Roy Carr and Mick Farren (Harmony Books, 1982) erroneously list "Let's Forget About the Stars" as a recording from Change of Habit; it was, in fact, recorded for a previous film, Charro!. Discounting songs later recorded for television and documentary productions, "Have a Happy" has the distinction of being the final soundtrack recording Presley made."
This is from me: OK. I'd never heard this one before and now I have the two versions mixed up in my mind as to which is the original! Ah- well. The nice touch with this remix is that they included the original song. Now...who'll be the next in line to be the KING?
I came across this record on a few blogs and managed to track down some audio from WFMU's site. I would love to hear more from this honky-tonkin' caterwaulin' queen. Listen to the tracks below and I think you will too!
