RCA issued the latest Elvis soundtrack single; "Frankie and Johnny"/"Please Don't Stop Loving Me" (RCA 47-8780). The A-side was the "Mississippi Showboat gambling" title track from his upcoming new movie and the B-side was a nice simple ballad. The front cover cover used a publicity photo from "Kissin' Cousins". The rear sleeve promoted the soundtrack album.

** The changing faces of Elvis:

                    original body shot photo chosen for the album's front cover.                                               Publicity shot chosen from "Girl Happy"

                                 my attempt on how it was done.                                                                                     original 'doctored' album front cover. 

RCA also released the new Elvis soundtrack album "Frankie and Johnny" in both mono and stereo formats. The album contained twelve new movie songs and the front cover used a 'doctored head' publicity shot from an earlier movie "Girl Happy" as Elvis' face seemed a little chubby on the original photograph. (see below **)
