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.
