 The 'Laughing Version' of the A-side was released on RCA 196, PB49433 and URC-1163.

I own the latter.

He couldn't perform the song straight on his 1977 live performance either.

 P.S. Jorgensen's book shows all the matrices from the April 3-4 sessions as L2WB, rather than L2WW as shown on the labels here. That is simply explained by B being the 4th character on the master tapes, but W the 4th character for 7" singles, see this Discogs forum thread for full explanations of all the characters.

 Ernst Jorgensen's book "A LIFE IN MUSIC: THE COMPLETE RECORDING SESSIONS" says "The master of "Are You Lonesome Tonight" (0106) is a splice of take 5 and the last bar from another, unidentified take." Recorded between 4-7 am on April 4 1960 at RCA Nashville (last part of overnight sessions that commenced at 7:30 pm the previous evening, the bulk of the songs ending up on ELVIS IS BACK). Parker had apparently suggested the song, a favourite of his wife Marie, the previous year.

 The story I've always heard was this: The master recording of the A-side is actually different takes spliced together because Elvis could never do the song straight all the way through. He thought it was corny, and only recorded it at the request of his manager, Tom Parker, because it was supposedly his wife's favorite song.

There may be some truth to this, for if you'll notice, there are no live recordings of him doing this song (that I'm aware of) where he does it straight. He's always goofing on it, going all the way back to the earliest live recording in Hawaii from '61. He didn't do it straight on the '68 TV special, you have the infamous "laughing" version from Vegas in '69 where he completely loses it (RCA in Canada actually put that version out as a single), plus the numerous '70s-era "jumpsuit" versions.

 The A side publishing info never changed from copy to copy, but the B side publishing did. Again (and I designated which image number was which), the first pressings gave the B side publisher as Alamo Music Inc., while the second pressings showed Gladys Music Inc. as the B side publisher. In those days, if label copy changed, RCA label typesetters simply started anew.

 WB, that's the A&B of the same disc, perhaps some overlap in label publishing changes?....John

 Music publishing info of B side differs on {Image #184800} - and in any event, was a second pressing - from that on {Image #238884} which was a first pressing (the spacing between songwriter and artist was identical on both sides with the "Alamo Music Inc." variant on the B side - but was closer on the "Gladys Music Inc." B side variant from the A side on later pressings). Both Rockaway, NJ and (presumably) Indianapolis, IN pressings used this label variant.
