According to an unconfirmed story Bobby Wood offered two demo recordings during february 1969 sessions:
The day after forever – written by Stan Kesler and recorded in september 1961 by Bobby Wood.

Who am I – recorded around 1962 by Bobby Wood in the Sun studio but never released.
(Mentioned in the book A life in music – page 278).
Without doubt the song was known to Elvis with recordings by his favorite gospel quartets like (Statesmen Quartet (1966 – LP), Blackwood Brothers (1967 – LP), J.D. Sumner & The Stamps Quartet (1967 – LP) and many others.
Finally recorded on 22 february 1969 at American Studios.

Jambalaya
The song is written by Hank Williams and recorded on 13 june 1952 (MGM 11283).
The song is registered at BMI with performer Elvis Presley. (see scans – page 2 is a list with performers I’ve not scanned). The song was submitted several times in the 60’s for a recording session but it was always rejected in the pre-selection.
On 4 may 1975 and a few other occasions Elvis sung small portions of the song.
