* AlbumSingle: On August 31, 1956, RCA Victor took the unusual step of releasing at once six singles from the 12 songs of the album, the idea being that those who couldn't afford [=LPs=] or [=EPs=] (the other formats ''Elvis Presley'' was released in) could pick up a few of the songs on singles. The unrelated "Lawdy Miss Clawdy" and "Shake, Rattle and Roll" were also released on a seventh single that same day. Chart-wise, this didn't prove to be a profitable idea as the only ones to chart were "Blue Suede Shoes" (#20 on the ''Billboard'' Top 100), "Money Honey" (#76 on the ''Billboard'' Top 100) and "Just Because" (didn't chart on ''Billboard'', but reached #53 on the ''Music Vendor'' chart).
