Elvis cut two sides (master 0914-A and 0914-B) on Saturday, 6/5, and picked up his acetate dub on Wednesday, 6/9. This documentation is likely for a song like, perhaps, Casual Love Affair. The flipside is likely another slow country ballad with just Elvis on guitar, i.e. not Without You since Elvis paid for the acetate. The receipt is very similar to the one for I’ll Never Stand in Your Way It Wouldn’t Be the Same Without You
