Forgotten Elvis song set for release

Tuesday, August 19, 2003 Posted: 6:14 PM EDT (2214 GMT)

MEMPHIS, Tennessee (AP) -- Elvis Presley fans got a special treat on the 26th anniversary of his death -- a never-heard-before Elvis song.

"I'm A Roustabout," which Presley recorded for the 1964 movie "Roustabout," is being released for the first time on a CD called "Elvis 2nd To None."

The song didn't make it into the movie, and the only known recording was forgotten for years among boxes of records and tapes belonging to co-author Winfield Scott.

Scott, who wrote the song with partner Otis Blackwell, remembered he had an acetate of "I'm A Roustabout" last year during a newspaper interview about his career.

Scott said he didn't think much about the recording at the time, but it wasn't long before RCA heard about it and came calling. The record company put the song on the album "Elvis 2nd To None," which is scheduled for release on October 7. The song was debuted Friday at Graceland, Presley's Memphis residence.

Scott described the song as a rocker that tells the story of a carnival worker whose boss is constantly pressing him to work harder.

"I'm happy it's coming out," Scott said by telephone from New York. "I think the public should hear it because I think the public should hear everything this man does. This guy is in a class by himself."

Presley died at Graceland on August 16, 1977.
