Red made a big deal out of this song when it was released. Thought people would think the singer was Elvis. A lot of them did. Considerable mileage was gotten from the artist’s name. Shortly thereafter it was commonplace and listeners thought nothing of it. I think the version featured here is a re-do. The singer’s voice isn’t as deep as the original and, as is always the case with digital audio, it’s tinnier. Ah, showbiz!
