It's Now or Never (3:17)

Cover of Elvis: 30 #1 Hits

From Elvis: 30 #1 Hits and 548 other releases

(From the It’s Now Or Never Songfacts) American audio engineer Bill Porter recalled one particular session with Elvis on April 3-4 1960: “Elvis was having trouble with ‘It’s Now or Never’ because he basically sang in the baritone range, and the end was in the tenor range. We recorded this song for at least seven or eight takes. At one point, I finally pushed the talkback button and said, ‘EP, we can just do the ending. I can splice it on without doing the song all the way through again’. He answered me with, ‘Bill, I’m gonna do it all the way through, or I’m not gonna do it at all!’ So, we did it again. And, of course, he got it the way he wanted it.”
