first recorded one of Don's songs, I'M COUNTING
ON YOU, in 1956 for his first RCA album. A few
years later, Elvis invited Don to come to Radio Recorders
in Hollywood to meet with him. They met and talked and hit
it off. After the session he invited Don to come up to his
house for the evening. This was the first of many get togethers
in Hollywood, Bel Air and Las Vegas. Elvis
not only admired Don as a songwriter, but also as a pianist.
Don can be heard accompanying Elvis on piano, organ and
electric piano on the soundtrack of the movie, "It
Happened At The World's Fair."
