The A-side is a terrific composition, in the soft medium rock style, interestingly enough written by Doc Pomus *and* Leiber and Stoller; right there, you know you have quality before you address the grooves. Elvis' easy going vocal is superb on this romantic offer, as he once again demonstrates his amazing dynamic range: he goes down to bass on the short Fats Domino-style piano break, then to baritone on the verse, then up to falsetto on the bridge. And for this listener, that can be a little disappointing: the powerful baritone-tenor heard on "Follow..." and "King..." just might have elevated this Top Ten bid. Ofcourse the softer approach works within the demands of the key and melody of the number, and is probably out of reach for most singers.
The flipside is even further away from the raucous, rockin' Elvis - another very good song showcasing his range, but on the middle eight, once again, Elvis opts for falsetto. The poorly mixed (apparent) trangle does not help a tune which probably deserved more *studio* attention.
An alternate of "She's Not You" is also here in a slower tempo. Footnote: Research suggests that these are the last "new" songs written for Elvis by Leiber and Stoller.
