DANNY

Latest update on 10/03/2011

Artist: Elvis Presley
Author: Fred Wise/Ben Weisman
Label: RCA
Year: 1958

Proposed title for one of his films. The box this recording was found in had 'Main Title' written all over it. Based on the novel A Stone For Danny Fisher, which is a long title for a film, especially an Elvis film, so they went for King Creole. Therefore the song Danny was no longer mandatory and was shelved until after Elvis' death.
