One day in 1960 I was going through my collection of Al Jolson and Judy Garland records, and I played Al`s "Are You Lonesome Tonight". I said, "Daddy, come listen to this. I could make it a No. 1 song". He agreed and I called Don Costa in to do the arrangement. I said, "I`m more excited about recording this song than anything I`ve ever cut." We were in the car on our way to New York when the radio played [Elvis Presley`s] "new" single, "Are You Lonesome Tonight?". Can you believe that? I was literally on my way to the studio to record it. How do you like that? Elvis even did the recitation part just like Al Jolson did.
