I have never believed the "wrong title" theory, and I believe there was a third acetate made, the one we know, where Elvis, for some reason, decided to re-cut one of the songs.
Sadly, this may never be solved, unless the acetate surfaces somewhere, which seems unlikely, almost 70 years later. Also, all the participants are long gone, so we have nobody to ask.
I think the same thing. And it doesn't seem logical to me that in June 1954 they remembered Elvis, if his last visit was in January... there must have been a third visit, closer to that date.
The problem I have with this being more than a title miss-remembered is that the song `casual love affair` would need a past, does anyone have a performer, songwriter, record release and publisher for such a song?
In short - where would Elvis get such a song from?
You are right. That's a mystery. Could be an otherwise unissued demo of a song supplied by Sam, or Dewey. Just a wild guess.
Anyway, aside from the "Elvis Presley Speaks !" magazine (written by Elvis' friend, Memphis Press-Scimitar journalist Robert Johnson), there is another 1956 source for the "Casual Love Affair"... errr.. affair. I have posted this before, but here it is again.
According to this clipping, the Presley family still retained the acetate in 1956, while living at the Audubon house. That disc did contain "I'll Never Stand In Your Way" and "Casual Love Affair".
This is part of a series of five Elvis articles published in October 1956 by "The Vancouver Sun" as written by journalist Evelyn Caldwell under the pseudonym of "Penny Wise".
She traveled to Memphis and met Elvis and his entourage and family, including Gladys. The newspaper published five articles by her on October 3,4, 5 and 6, with the final one being published on October 9, and being the one containing this info.
