Your 3 favorite Elvis B sides from each decade

Sat Feb 09, 2013 7:44 pm

Hello- would like to know members 3 favorite B sides from the 50's, 60's and 70's. These would be based on USA 45 RPM single releases(no EPS).
I am not counting Hound Dog/Dont Be Cruel since that record had both sides as a B at one point. Here are mine:

50's
My Baby Left Me
Treat Me Nice
I Got Stung/I Need Your Love Tonight (tie)

60's
A Mess of Blues
Little Sister (always felt this should have been an A side on its own)
It Hurts Me/Edge of Reality - tie

70's
Patch It Up (see Little Sister)
Always On My Mind (see Little Sister)
For The Heart

Note that May 1974's "If You Talk In Your Sleep" was an A-side, with "Help Me" as the B-side.

Hey, only USA 45 RPM single releases! ;-)

So, what's #3 for your '70s B-side?

For the Heart is shown as the 'A' side on this authoritative site:

So Doc, what's your #3 for a '70s B-side?

I throw the question back to you. Javilu and colinB has pointed that For The Heart is the A side.

Of course I read your post, but somehow when I read it before the image you posted did not appear on my monitor.

Maybe he always wanted "Hurt" as the A-side, but no one at RCA listened. Heaven knows Elvis did not promote "For The Heart" a-tall.

What this fact shows is that Felton Jarvis believed, of all the Graceland masters done in February 1976, "For The Heart" was the best. Interesting that, in March 1976, he raved on and on about "Danny Boy" to Ernst Jorgensen.

Post updated.
