According to guitarist Scotty Moore, when “Blue Suede Shoes” 
was recorded, "We just went in there and started playing, just
winged it. Just followed however Elvis felt." According to reports
confirmed by Sam Phillips, RCA producer Steve Sholes agreed
not to release Presley’s version of the song as a single while
Carl Perkins release was hot.
