Girl Happy is the twenty-second album by Elvis Presley, released on
RCA Victor Records in mono and stereo, LPM/LSP 3338, in March 1965.
It is the soundtrack to the 1965 film of the same name starring
Presley. Recording sessions took place at Radio Recorders in
Hollywood, California, on June 10, 11, 12, and vocal overdubs by
Presley on June 15, 1964. It peaked at number eight on the Top LP's
chart. It was certified Gold on July 15, 1999 by the Recording
Industry Association of America.
"Do the Clam" was released approximately a month ahead of the album
as a single, peaking at number 21 on the Billboard Hot 100 and
remaining on the chart for eight weeks. Its B-side – an unused track
called "You'll Be Gone", written by Presley with "Memphis Mafia"
entourage members Red West and Charlie Hodge – was derived from the
March 18, 1962 sessions for Pot Luck with Elvis. A variant on the
Cole Porter standard, "Begin the Beguine" (after Porter had denied
permission to alter the lyrics), the new song was drafted using the
Porter tune and lyric as a template.Not appearing in the film, it
was added to the Girl Happy soundtrack album. (wikipedia
