Easy Come, Easy Go is an EP by American singer Elvis Presley, containing songs from the motion picture of the same name, released by RCA Victor in March 1967.

Recording and release history

Recording sessions took place on September 28 and 29, 1966, at Paramount Studio in Hollywood, California. After the relative freedom of the Nashville sessions in May that yielded How Great Thou Art and other songs more to his taste, Presley was reportedly unhappy with the quality of the songs selected for the film, allegedly referring to the selections as "shit" during the recording session.[2] It is often reported[3][4] 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.[5][6] Seven selections were recorded for the film; the song "She's A Machine" was not used in the movie, but would be released on Elvis Sings Flaming Star the following year.[7]

The remaining six appeared on an extended play single released to coincide with the March 1967 premiere of the film. It failed to chart on the Billboard Hot 100, and sold fewer than 30,000 units total.[8] Given that the EP format was no longer a viable marketing medium, and the poor performance of Easy Come, Easy Go, it was the final release of new material by Presley in the EP format.[8] The British issue, however, did top the UK EP charts despite featuring only four of the six tracks on the US edition ("The Love Machine" and "You Gotta Stop" were omitted).[9]
