Elvis returned to Nashville's Studio B and recorded three songs for the soundtrack of his next film, "Stay Away, Joe". He had not even been involved in the song selection and was so discouraged by the quality of the movie material that he made Felton Jarvis swear that he would never release one of its songs on record, "Dominic," a song sang to a bull.
