Songwriter Les Reed submitted for the recording sessions in june 1970

1 – My little princess (Stephens-Reed) – rejected.
The demo version is sung by Jesse Ray.

2 – Sophia (Reed-Stephens) – rejected; the song is registered at ASCAP.
The song was recorded in early 1971 by Les Reed & his Orchestra (Chapter1 CH 142) = instrumental version.

3 – Sylvia (Stephens-Reed) – recorded 8 june 1970;

4 – This is our dance (Reed-Stephens) – recorded 6 june 1970

It's a pity there's not much known about the song selection / demos for this recording session.

I searched for love & I’m riding
Both songs were written by Larry Rivera.
These are not real demo versions, but during the shooting of the movie Blue Hawaii Elvis heard both songs performed by the songwriter in the hotel. Elvis asked him to sell the rights of the songs. Later on the songwriter got back the rights and he recorded both songs himself “I searched for love” (Coco Palms rec 45-18) and “I’m riding” for an album.
