PRIVATE HOME RECORDINGS (Exact Date Unknown) (Were these songs even recorded in one session?)

Goethestrasse 14, or Hotel Grunewald?

 

Elvis continued to record material on his home tape recorder, with a repertoire that included Gospel numbers, R&B songs, and well-known standards like Tony Martin's "There's No Tomorrow" (English lyrics set to the "O Sole Mio" melody popularized by Enrico Caruso) that Elvis was considering for future release. Elvis likes the song so much that he subsequently asks Freddy Bienstock to commission new lyrics. (audio) **These were home recordings made on domestic equipment and not intended for public use**  (I have separated the tracks for convenience.)
