Hal Wallis wrote to Colonel Parker a long letter and expressed his concern over Elvis' appearance. Wallis felt it has deteriorated significantly since "Roustabout", and referred to responses from fans who say something must be "radically wrong" with Elvis. Wallis also said Elvis' hair was too fluffed up, too black and looks too much like a wig. The bottom line was that Elvis doesn't look like a Navy frogman, for his role in "Easy Come, Easy Go"

Elvis arrived an hour late for the recording session, after he had his hair cut at home. Two backing tracks were recorded by the band after Elvis left, "You Gotta Stop" and "Leave My Woman Alone". It is unknown when Elvis added his vocals to "You Gotta Stop", as this song was substituted into the movie instead of "She's A Machine". Elvis never added his vocal to "Leave My Woman Alone"
