There was a recording session from 10.00 a.m. to 7.00 p.m. However, Elvis was very disappointed that Sholes hadn’t been able to contact Leiber and Stoller. The whole session was a disaster. The A-side of his next single Wear My Ring Around Your Neck was cut, but not like Elvis wanted it to be and the 48 takes of Doncha’ Think It’s Time were not much better either. Steve Sholes was very disappointed that he had not been able to store up any kind of backlog for the 2 years that Elvis would be away.
