Sun boss Sam Phillips refused to release it. He was only interested in Orbison's rockabilly output, while Roy felt more for intimate stuff. Claudette was the name of his first wife who died in a motor accident. The demo lacks drums. Roy's version with drums followed the Everly's version.
Jimmy Clanton [B-side of Just A Dream]
Everly Brothers [n°1 UK as B-side of All I Have To Do Is Dream]
Roy Orbison [first released version by the author on MGM]
The Everly's hit was Roy's escape route from Sun for the price of his royalties. He kept Claudette and signed for Acuff-Rose music publishing.
