The first Elvis single of the new year was issued. "Until It's Time for You to Go"/"We Can Make the Morning" (RCA 74-0619). The A-side was a beautiful soft ballad originally released by Buffy Saint-Marie in 1965. The B-side was a more familiar uptempo pop song from Elvis. The sleeve used a live shot of Elvis wearing his White Turquoise Concho Suit taken during his engagement last year in Las Vegas. It also promoted two new upcoming album releases; "Elvis Now" and "He Touched Me"
