I've ordered it and it's on the way. And yep, Yoga Is as yoga Does sounds better than the Elvis cut. All a bit of innocent fun.

That's Alright With Me was (I Think) Ral Donner's first record. That one isn't too bad but a lot of these songs are crazy.

Spot on Mike. 'That's All Right With Me' backed with 'Tell Me Why' was released in 1959 by Ral. It wouldn't be until 1961 until his first hit though, 'The Girl Of My Best Friend / It's Been A Long Long Time' which peaked at position 19 in the USA.

Your CD has been gently taken from our CD Baby shelves with sterilized contamination-free gloves and placed onto a satin pillow.
A team of 50 employees inspected your CD and polished it to make sure it was in the best possible condition before mailing.
Our packing specialist from Japan lit a candle and a hush fell over the crowd as he put your CD into the finest gold-lined box that money can buy.
We all had a wonderful celebration afterwards and the whole party marched down the street to the post office where the entire town of Portland waved "Bon Voyage!" to your package, on its way to you, in our private CD Baby jet on this day, May 12, 2010.
We hope you had a wonderful time shopping at CD Baby. In commemoration, we have placed your picture on our wall as "Customer of the Year." We're all exhausted but can't wait for you to come back to CDBABY.COM!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Sigh...
We miss you already. We'll be right here at http://cdbaby.com/, patiently awaiting your return.

Oh that's the new "Shop Elvis" policy, given all the nicely-packaged CD's I've gotten from them of late! :lol:

Neat post, Doc....

So he's the one responsible for the "Yoga Is As Yoga Does" atrocity!
