The hit single itself is surely one Elvis' greatest triumphs in that medium, especially considering that the flipside was also on the album!
"Return To Sender" is an instantaneous tidal wave of good-natured pop with alotta kick. Presumptive reference disc is Dean Martin's "Standing On The Corner", another catchy oddball, also not exactly danceable, put something for the ages.
B-side is a true art song, another near-falsetto 3am porchswing confession from the master of the soft ballad, Elvis aron Presley.
Extra tune is Big El's "cover" of version one [Historians, correct me if I'm wrong] of the Coasters' 1961 almost-hit. Elvis enlists supe saxman Homer "Boots" Randolph to do an extended solo on this gospel-styled, decidely secular, storming uptempo entry. Just as on the above-named titles, his voice is clear as a bell, 27 year-old Elvis at the stern.
