Easy Come, Easy Go
is a 1967 musical film
starring Elvis Presley
An extended play record
of the same title as the movie was recorded at Radio Recorders
in Hollywood, California
in September 1966 and released in May 1967. It was the final release of new material by Presley in the EP format. The EP contains the six songs performed in the film. A seventh song, "She's a Machine", recorded but unused, later appeared on the compilation album Elvis Sings Flaming Star
Presley was reportedly unhappy with the quality of the songs selected for the film. According to Roy Carr and Mick Farren's retrospective, Elvis: The Illustrated Record, Presley is alleged to have referred to the songs as "shit" during the recording session and the writers label this their choice for the worst record Presley ever recorded.
It is often reported that Presley recorded "Leave My Woman Alone" for the film, but only an instrumental backing was ever recorded; Presley never recorded a vocal for the song.
