One of the songs that incomprehensibly did not see the light of day during Elvis' time at Sun Records and that RCA included both on the LP and on the EP published in March 1956. Presley's interpretation was fabulous, but Scotty and Bill they lag behind with masterful performances on guitar and double bass respectively. It is unknown which take was used for the master. It failed to enter the lists.


Another classic, Blue Moon, which, like the A-side, was already included on the Elvis Presley LP. Although composed by Richard Rogers and Lorenz Hart under the title of Make Me A Star to be included in the soundtrack of the film Hollywood Party, although the sequence would ultimately be discarded, Hart later modified both the title and part of the lyrics. Recorded during its time on the Sun label, it entered the Billboard charts on September 19, obtaining number fifty-five as its best position. The take used for the master is unknown.
