The rock n roll song "That's Alright Mama" was originally recorded by American artist Elvis Presley, partly inspired by Arthur "Big Boy" Crudup's 1946 blues track "That's All Right". Elvis released the single, his very first commercially recorded tune, in 1954. It later appeared in its first album form on Elvis' work The Sun Sessions, which also came out that same year.[2]

"Back Door Santa", written by Clarence Carter and Marcus Daniel, was originally performed by Carter. A sexually suggestive r&b song in the 12-bar blues format, it first received wide release after its inclusion on the multi-artist compilation album Soul Christmas, which came out in November 1968.[3]
