Steve Sholes had booked a badly needed RCA recording session for Elvis at Radio Recorders, an independent studio on Santa Monica Boulevard. Sholes needed new material for a second album and Elvis seemed to be happy with the environment around him, especially working with recording engineer, Thorne Nogar.
Songs recorded: "Playing for Keeps", "Love Me", "How Do You Think I Feel" and "How's the World Treating You". (audio))
