This album was supposedly released due to pressure applied by the U.K. magazine 'Elvis Monthly' and it's Record Club. After RCA took over from HMV in the UK, fans found it difficult to obtain this 'missing' album unless they bought it from abroad at increased prices. The monthly tried to get its readers (estimated at 400,000) to guarantee to buy a copy. The editor even promised to buy 1000 copies!

The Record Club's next target is 'Flaming Star' and 'Summer Kisses', songs that are not available in Britain at this time.

It entered the UK charts on December 8, 1962, and like it's predecessor peaked at no. 3.
